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.

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

Logos: A Free Webinar On A Great Resource

Recently I had the opportunity to attend WiMS (Women in Ministry Summit) hosted by Logos. It was a one day event where nearly 50 women gathered and encouraged one another in the different passions we all have that ultimately support one goal: Glorifying God! I felt honored to be among such spiritually mature women of faith. It was great to meet these women, some of whom I have been building friendships with online for years. The above photo is just over half of the women who joined together! To sit with these women and hear how The Lord is using them effectively to spread the Gospel was enlightening and bolstered my faith. I also had the privilege of hearing Kay Arthur share her story with us. Through

Prayer is not a preparation for the battle; it is the battle!

Prayer is important to me. It always has been. Even when my heart was hard, my faith was lacking, and I chose not to pray, I knew it was important. During that season of darkness, my husband remained faithful and prayed over us daily. I am so incredibly thankful for his strength to do this and I believe God heard my husband’s prayers, reconciling us and restoring our marriage. Although I have always viewed prayer as vital and believe there is power in prayer, I am usually wishing there is more I can do, whether in my marriage or for others. I pray and ask that God’s will is done, but I also have an ache to do more. This way of thinking can be
