Dangerous Territory – Praying For Our Husbands
I’ve been married 14 years and four months.
Jokingly (but not really) I’ve said that the odd years are the tough ones. The first – wow. I didn’t think we were going to make it.
Seven was hard. 13 was harder.
Don’t get me wrong – I wouldn’t marry another man for all the money in the world. I love my husband. I ADORE my husband. He is, without at doubt, God’s perfect choice for me as partner and helpmate. He is strong where I am weak. He completes me.
He also has the ability to make me Stark. Raving. Crazy.
He found buttons to push I didn’t know I had. That whole “you complete me” thing? Translation: you are my POLAR OPPOSITE.
Gabe=Alien (at times)
A loveable alien, but one who, at times, doesn’t speak my language.
One thing I’ve learned over the last 14 years? It’s hard to hold on to anger – and it’s own helpmate, bitterness,when you’re praying. You cannot be selfish in prayer. Or rather, you can, it just doesn’t get you anywhere.
For the rest of the week, I’m going to share with you some snippets of a very powerful book.
A dangerous book.
This isn’t going to be easy.
The results could be life-altering.
Are you ready?
There are some deep hurts in marriage. But I do know this; as long as we are holding on to those things like a balled up tissue, we can never be truly free to hold out our hands in prayer on behalf of our husbands. This is brave stuff we’re talking about here – giving up the right to be angry and getting on our knees instead of getting even.
