08 Mar Mission “Restore my marriage”
First of all Thanks’ for your time, I really appreciate it. I know you must be so busy these days. With all these people on the planet keeping you up with their wrong choices. Believe me, I see clearly what they should be doing. They are all too busy concentrating on themselves. It must be pretty hard for you to have patience with all these people who keep on hurting each other. They give up so easily these days……
Well, anyway. I am glad you have a window for me so I can share what’s burden my heart. I’m really in need of your help, I have tried everything I can, but I am out of ideas and I need you to change my husband.
If I can be really honest with you, I can’t stand him anymore. I have tried everything, but he won’t change. He doesn’t listen to me. He doesn’t understand me or my needs. I say that he needs to pray more and read the Bible, but he doesn’t. Clearly, he needs to find out who he is in you. I mean how can I love him if he doesn’t know who he is. I am trying really hard here believe me.
I am sure you love him and all that, and of course I love him too. But not as my husband. I think he will be a perfect husband one day….for someone else.
I mean, he is a great dad and a very good coach for our son’s soccer team. However, I think It just takes up too much of our time. He helps his grandmother too, don’t you think she should call someone else, I mean other people can help out too, right?
And absolutely I have to give him credit for supporting us and providing for us. I mean he works a lot. He even worked double one period so we didn’t have to cancel our ski trip. I think we have just grown apart and the love we had is dead.
Anyway, Thank you so much for listening, Thank you for your understanding; it is always so good to talk to you. I feel so much lighter. I have to run, but I will be back later to hear if you want to add anything. Maybe you can give me a word I can use when I tell my husband how and what he needs to change.
Again thank you God and good luck with all your hard work changing peoples attitudes and lives. And just to let you know, if you don’t have time with my husband I pretty much know what needs to be done. So it is absolutely fine if you leave it to me. You know what, when I think about it, I’ll do it myself!
Ok, talk to you later.
“Don’t know about you, but this is how I spoke to God about my husband and my marriage. I was clearly not in a good place to see how much work my own heart needed. All I could see and all I could focus on were Johan’s wrongs and shortcomings. I never stayed long enough to hear God’s answer or his guidance. My marriage and life started to change when I allowed the change in me.
The turning-point in my life came when I finally asked God after my long monologue: Did you say something?
And yes, He had a few things to add….
The first thing he said: Linda, Love never dies. Let my love for you be a sign of that. I will show you how my Love heals restores and makes new. Let me Love you whole.
That is how mission “Restore our marriage” began 16 years ago.
