Please be in prayer for Emily ...... a young mother who lives in Texas. She has a little boy, Grant, and is pregnant with a daugther, Aubrey. On 2/18, her husband noticed a few symptons and went to the hospital and just 10 days later he passed away from Non-Hodgkins
I've had a lot of people write me lately to ask me about advice on getting their husbands interested in going to church. I know it is so hard when you want to go to church and you want your children to be raised in church and your husband isn't interested. You wonder what people will think of you if you go alone with your kids and you long to be one of those families who go and sit in the pews together. You would love to go to Sunday School - but would be intimidated to go to a couples class alone.
I just want to encourage you to try to go and take your kids. Don't nag your husband to go to church. Just try to live for Jesus - and that joy and peace will overflow from you and your husband will notice. The best thing you can do is pray daily for your husband. Pray that God will make him a man after His own heart. And keep praying. The book above is one I would read.
Or get this book - I'm not much of reader but I did this Bible study a few years ago and started really praying for Scott. He went to church with me at the time but was just NOT my spiritual leader and I wondered sometime if he was really saved. I just started praying and trying to show him respect and love and waited on God. And a few months later - he began changing and then one night broke down and told me he wasn't saved and he wanted to be. Overnight he began spending a lot of time reading his Bible, praying, asking me if we were tithing, listening to only Christian music and wanting to go to church every time the doors were open and most importantly became the Spiritual leader in our family.
Scott and I are not perfect Christians - FAR, FAR from it. We aren't even "good" Christians. We are broken, sinful humans. I'll be totally honest with you - I haven't had a consistent quiet time since Harper was born and I'm working on it. But I do love God more than anything and it's a daily struggle to make Him my top priority. I just want to encourage all of you out there who think your husband will never be the spiritual leader in your family - don't doubt God. He can do anything with anyone!
