Down, But Not Out

Hello sweet friends, pray your Sonday was blessed. Well, my husband disappointed me again. I was deflated like a balloon this morning, when he would not get up, and go to Church. My heart was truly hurting, call me blue. I cried all day, was deeply saddened by this turn of events. But, I forgive him, and have totally turned him over for safe keeping in God's hands. All I can do, is to continue to love him, and pray without ceasing for him. Only God can change his heart, and mind. He said, we would go next Sonday. I truly pray with all of my heart, that we will. Would appreciate your prayers concerning this, thank you.

I am one that doesn't go to church...I feel deep in my heart and mind that church is only a building....the Lord hears us in our thoughts and prayers.

But, on the other hand I can understand your wishes for some people who feel as you do and how you need some companionship that will set you on the right track.

Perhaps, if your husband would understand your need, he would feel okay that you find someone through your church to drive you to services and home again.?.!!?!

Oh, that was really sad. Hope you find joy in hearing preaching from internet although it is not the same. You are in my prayer Denise. Bless your heart.

I don't understand. Can't you go there without him?

Pia said...

God has a perfect timing for everything. He will "push" him to go when it's time. In the meantime, have fellowship with us here. Or listen to podcasts. That i do a lot. Denise, the Lord knows your heart, how much you wanted to go to church and i know for sure the Lord smiles down at you. Cheer up!

Thank you for praying. I need believers yo stand with me in prayer for a miracle. I love ya!

There is such power in prayer. I know the Lord doesn't take our agency away, but he will do everything he can to help your husband and you! HUGS my sweet and patient friend. Maybe you should look into attending an LDS church - it might just be what your husband is looking for. Praying all goes well.

What a huge let down this must be. I'm truly sorry. Talk to someone at the church, maybe they have an outreach person who could arrange travel for you.

I prayed & waited for about 30 years for my husbands to show any interest in the things of God. It was especially hard when the children were still at home. But, finally, about 12 years ago he began to move in a different direction. It is such a joy to sit together at church, and to belong to a Home Group that fellowships together. Keep waiting and praying!

So very sorry....

We will all keep praying for your situation...I know he doesn't want you to go without him...BUT, he is keeping YOU from going and JESUS says to FOLLOW HIM. I know you want to respect your Husband but GOD is higher. There is nothing wrong for you to go with a friend/family person...find someone if you can....that may make a change in him to go when he sees you are not going to sit there with him... Just a suggestion.....I feel your pain...I went to church for 20 yrs by myself..keep the faith! Roxie
