Marriage Devotionals For Wives

My purpose for these short marriage devotionals are to encourage wives through God’s Word. Each devotional has God inspired content, based on what God is currently teaching me. His Word is rich in wisdom and comfort and I believe it is important that we are encouraged through scripture, especially about marriage and relationships.

Neon Lies – Don’t Call The Number, Call On God!

My husband and I were driving home the other night and as we passed by billboards that stood high above ground, there was one that made me nauseous. The advertisement simply read: Fast divorce and bankruptcy… call this number!” My heart sank in my chest from the weight of a burden I felt for all the people who see that billboard on a daily basis. I am aware that there are circumstances that lead people to one or both of these routes, but I find it disgusting how our society flaunts these two options as a quick way to make your life better. Such a lie! The mentality adopted in this generation is clearly a self-centered one. We need to be satisfied fast and easy, whatever it

Do You Walk In Integrity When No One Is Around?

Who are you when no one is around?  Throughout my teenage and young adult years this question would have burned a hole in my heart. It would have made me squirm and cringe because of shame. I was good at hiding who I was and what I did in secret. I would put a smile on my face and answered fine to every “How are you doing” question. Intentionally neglecting to address who I was in private was something I learned to do because of fear that people wouldn’t like who I really was. I convinced myself that it was ok to be one way around my family, another way around church friends and yet another way in the privacy of my bedroom. I did

Do You Have This Characteristic Of God?

Psalm 86. Before I go on, would you take a minute to open up your Bible and read Psalm 86 or click HERE to read it? There it was…one line that stood out boldly from the rest. Verse 5. For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive…“ David penned that God is ready to forgive. I had to stop at this point and reread it. Feeling compelled by the Holy Spirit I evaluated my heart, Am I ready to forgive? The truth is I’m am not always ready to forgive, especially in my relationship with my husband. There have been many times that I dwell on the negative, I consider the circumstances before I consider who my husband is, I contemplate how things will

The Wife From Hell

As I sat in church Sunday morning the words from my pastor pierced my heart. A perspective I have never considered before revealed a part of my character I know well, but hate to acknowledge. First, I ask that you take a moment to review the Scripture shared by my pastor and then I will explain. Luke 16:19-31 19 “Now there was a rich man, and he habitually dressed in purple and fine linen, joyously living in splendor every day. 20 And a poor man named Lazarus was laid at his gate, covered with sores, 21 and longing to be fed with the crumbs which were falling from the rich man’s table; besides, even the dogs were coming and licking his sores. 22 Now the

If You Struggle With Fear You Should Read This.

Fear is one of my biggest problems. I often times let fear rule my life more than putting my faith in God. Fear is crippling! And I know many wives struggle with fear like me. This is a guest article from a wife in our community who tackles the hard truths about fear and what we can do to overcome once and for all! Danessa writes: People often say that fear is the opposite of faith, but I respectfully disagree. The way I see it, fear actually relies on faith — it’s simply faith in the wrong things. Fear is placing your faith in “what-ifs” rather than in “God is.” It’s allowing your imagination to wander down a long dark alley of possibilities and get mugged every

I Didn’t Want My Husband Anymore

We were four years into our marriage and I was not happy. Marriage was hard and the challenges we were confronted with chipped away at my faith for our future. I didn’t want my husband anymore…I wanted someone new, someone who would fulfill my desires, someone perfect. I wrote on this issue before in an article titled, “How My Husband Found Out About My Secret Affair.” You can click the title to read it. I never physically cheated on my husband, but I explain in the article how I emotionally and mentally sinned against my husband by lusting after another man. I felt justified. My marriage was failing and I convinced myself the butterflies I got when I daydreamed about being with someone else meant that
