One of the things that I love about my husband is his ability to trust in God no matter what the circumstances. He knows that we serve a God who is powerful and all knowing. A God who works all things together for our good even when we struggle to see it with our natural eyes.
I’ve heard sermons before where the minister spoke about “crazy faith” and “reckless faith.” The kind of faith where you fully let go of a situation and let God take control. It’s the kind of faith I desperately want to have and I am getting there. I am working to not let my situation dictate my mood or doubt to creep in when things stop going as planned. I am constantly reminding myself that it isn’t about me. It’s about Him. And I am making an increased effort to keep my eyes on Jesus so that I don’t start sinking like Peter.
But God is merciful. And even in times where my faith seems to falter, He still is working things out in my favor. He is also gracious ,having blessed me with a husband that is constantly sending forth prayers on behalf of me and our family. Where I am weak He is strong.
My husband is the kind of man who will stand by my side while I weep and he will look at me and remind me that weeping only endures for a night. He will remind me that my joy is coming in the morning.
As a wife I am thankful for my husband’s companionship; encompassed in that is my deep sense of gratitude for the fact that I married a man who prays – with me, for me and over me.
As we continue to grow in the Word the nature of our prayers is changing. And subsequently we are changing too. I am thankful that God is using my husband to be a blessing to me. Yes, there are moments when I struggle… perhaps after a disagreement or a stressful day. But I married a man who knows someone who is more than capable of handing our problems. A man who is careful and calculated with many of life’s decisions, but thankfully not his faith. Last week I shared 13 Bible verses to pray over your husband. Now it’s time for the ladies.
