If we have God in our marriages we are like a cord of three strands.....strong and not easily broken. For quite awhile now, at my home, the strand has been broken. It feels as if, I have been involved in a very tiring, and time consuming, game of tug of war. On one side, is my dear husband, and on the other side, is me, and God. My husband believes in God, and loves God. What is the problem then, you may wonder?? He has wandered away from God, has not wanted to go to church, or talk about church. What makes it even worse, he does not want me to go to church, or talk about church to him. Which is very difficult for me, I love the Lord so much, and enjoy going to church, praising the Lord, and being with my brothers and sisters, sharing our love of the Lord together. But, of course, I love my husband with all of my heart, and hurt for him. I always keep him covered in prayer. I thought, and prayed, that after I had my stroke, and nearly died, but for the grace of God, that my husbands heart would have softened, and turned back to the Lord. Unfortunately, that did not happen, the last 6 months have been really hard, a real battle. I am still recovering from my stroke, and I long to be in church with other believers. I want to be able to praise God for all He has done for me, and continues to do. I want to pray with others, and encourage others in the Lord. So, the Lord, and I, have been really tugging at My husbands heart. Trying our very best to pull him over to our side, which by the way, happens to be the winning side. His side, is the losing side, which only leads him down the destructive path to hell. We are determined to win this game of tug of war. This week, there are signs, that he is beginning to weaken, woo hoo!! He told me on Monday, that we are going to church this coming sunday. Praise God!! God and I are in this, to win this. The cord of three strands is slowly being mended, it will not be long, until it is totally repaired. Thank You Lord.
