On Your Heart Tuesday

Hello everyone, and welcome to on your heart Tuesday. My heart is filled with much happiness today. You see, for two years, I have been out of church. The reason for this was due to my husband. I know he loves the Lord, and believes in Him, but he chooses not to go to church. I totally do not understand that at all. I truly love the Lord, believe in Him, and love being in church. I love fellowship with others, praying, singing, everything involved in church. But, my husband doesn't. This hurts my heart. But, what truly hurts my heart, is he will not take me to church, and he knows I cannot drive. The problem is, he does not want to go to church, and he does not want me to go without him. Crazy!! Well, last night, I finally poured out my hurting heart to him. I told him I felt like I was dying. Every since my stroke, I have not been the same, in every way. I am so very lonely, longing for time with other believers. I need prayer time with others, devotional time with other women, singing, feeding of the Word to me by a preacher. I told my husband that if I die, I want to have a preacher, and a church family, to help him deal with my death. After sharing my heart, and alot of tears, it was his turn to talk. He told me he was sorry for causing this hurt to me, and that Sunday, we are going to church. Thank You for this answer to prayer Father.

Tears came to my eyes, joyful tears, when I read how your honest talk inspired your husband to take you to church this Sunday. I think the sermon will be full of words specially healing for you.

I am so happy for you. I truly don't know what I would do if I didn't have a church to go to. I am thrilled that your husband had a change of heart.
Blessings to you both!

Yes, you do need the fellowship of other believers, Denise, face-to-face and not just on facebook. Make no apologies for needing this. I'm so proud of you for speaking your heart in love, and I'm thrilled that you'll both be going to church this weekend.

peace~elaine
