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.

Unthankfulness In Marriage Leads To A Joyless Life

There was a time in my marriage that I was angry with God.  I felt entitled to a miracle that didn’t seem to be coming my way.  Drowning in hopelessness and fantasizing about life after divorce consumed my days.  I was angry at God for not stepping in on my time.  The seed of anger planted roots in my heart and from it grew unthankfulness.  Without being thankful for anything I lost joy and happiness.  Depression sank in even more. During that dark time in my life I avoided God.  I justified my anger towards Him, somehow blaming Him for the circumstances in my marriage.  With my continuing negative attitude and unthankful heart, my husband found it difficult to enjoy himself around me.  He encouraged

This video below was a campaign produced by Dove.  It really gets you thinking about all the pressures woman face in today’s culture. WARNING: There is explicit content in this video – but nothing we are not already exposed to through advertising! So what pressures do we face as women? What pressures do we face as wives?

Reflecting On 2011

Taking a glance back at 2011 in hindsight blows my mind.  I am overwhelmed with joy to see all that I experienced in the last 12 months!  As you time-travel with me, reflecting my journey, please note that there are a few archived posts linked in the text, just in case you felt inclined to check them out 🙂 In January, my husband and I found a cute little apartment that feels bigger than it really is.  And we celebrated our 4 year anniversary! In February we reached a goal that was driving us for nearly two years and we made a video to share the good news with our family and friends! That’s right!  We are officially debt free and it feels so good!

Stop Satan! This Marriage Belongs To God!

A few months ago I posted this picture of myself with a message of powerful words.  What my husband and I were currently experiencing in our marriage prompted that specific message and I knew many more wives could relate.  Our marriage was going great!  We were full of love and kindness, enjoying life… and then… BLAM!  We crashed into a 200 foot cement wall – metaphorically speaking of course!  Our attitudes became nasty towards each other, and we would bicker and banter until our faces turned blue.  Finally we had to acknowledge that we live amidst a spiritual battle, where good vs. evil relentlessly tug on our hearts.  In the moment when we fight or argue, it is very difficult to STOP and say “Satan

Are You Contemplating Divorce?

I was just reading Matthew 1:18-25 and my heart dropped when Joseph was contemplating divorce.  “8This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. 19 Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly. 20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy

Our Bodies Are On Loan

“For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. Therefore we are always confident and
