God’s Word: “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:18;19

Encouragement Shared: So often we find ourselves in difficult circumstances when it comes to relationships, especially for those of us who are married. Marriage is a sacrificial act of love, respect and honoring one another above ourselves. If you are single, we must ask our selves; Am I willing to love sacrificially?, not counting wrong doing? … Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. Ephesians 5:22We must all seek within are we submitted unto God? Yes beloved in order for us to have success in the area of marriage we must be submitted to God. Yes, I said the word submit… The truth is if we are not submitted unto God, then we will not see victory in this area. [ Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.] Psalm 143:10
He who is faithful will equip us to do his perfect and pleasing will. The word encourages us; The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. 1 Thessalonians 5:24
…in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:6 … There is victory ahead when we submit to God, he hears our prayers and honors them through our deliberate acts of obedience. Obedience brings us blessings … Disobedience brings us shame and disgrace.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
2 Corinthians 13:14 NIV

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
In Christ Love,

Prayer for Our Husband:

Heavenly Father,
I put my trust in your everlasting faithfulness…
That right now as I pray, I rest confidently that you who began a good work in me,
will also do a good work in my husband to full completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
May your Holy Spirit come upon him, refresh his heart; refresh his mind; refresh his spirit.
Please strengthen him Father; physically, emotionally through mercy, grace and your unfailing love.
May your spirit rest upon him. The spirit of of wisdom and understanding; the spirit of counsel and of power.
… The spirit of knowledge and reverence for you – and he will delight in the fear of the Lord.
My husband will not judge by what he sees with his eyes or decide by what he hears with his ears,
but will put complete trust in your word.
Thank you Father, for the advance answer to all our prayers.
In Christ name…Amen!
