Covenant Marriage

Today’s post is a guest post by the author of www.towardabundantlife.wordpress.com.   She has some fascinating stories about how God has powerfully changed her life and now uses her to bring great glory to Himself! This is an older post we ran over at the Peacefulwife site early last year but probably one of my favorite guest posts we have ever run.  When we celebrated our anniversary earlier this week, I couldn’t help but replay our wedding day in my mind.  Every bride has at least one regret about her wedding day.  Whether it’s her hair or the cake or the flowers or...

Please, Say Something!

Peacefulwife here. 🙂 One of the biggest issues the wives at www.peacefulwife.com talk about is how frustrating it is when they ask their husbands something and their husbands just never respond. We have been exploring how men think and process emotions over the past few weeks.  I think the more that women can understand just how vastly different men and women are and how very different our ways of thinking and perceiving the world are – the more we can be understanding, patient and empathetic with our men. MEN NEED TIME We have been learning about how sometimes it takes...

Deploy

Last Sunday in my Sunday School Class, we were studying 2 Timothy, Chapter 2. In the first part of that chapter Paul gives three examples for Timothy to follow. In 2 Timothy 2:3-4, the Bible reads, “Endure hardship with us like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No one serving as a soldier gets involved in civilian affairs – he wants to please his commanding officer.” As we were discussing this illustration in class, one of the members commented, “I can remember the times that I have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. When I have been in these places where the enemy is very real, I have noticed that my feelings on politics disappear. My problems with others attitudes and habits go away. Any dislike or issues that I have with my job fade away. In these times, my only commitment and goal is to carry out the mission that has been given to me.” As I heard him make this comment I thought, “That is a great picture of pleasing the commanding officer.” One of the missions that we have been given by our commanding officer is to fulfill our role as a husband in our marriage. Many of us will also have to carry out another role from the commanding officer as a Dad. Our commanding officer never says that the job is going to be...

Stop Hiding, Start Hurting, Start Healing

A couple of weeks back, a reader made a comment about her marriage that really struck a chord with the Peacefulwife and I. The part that really hit home with us went something like this, “I never knew that I was hurting my husband. If I would have known that I was hurting him I would have tried to change sooner.” As a passive husband with years of experience I can totally understand this situation. A passive husband pursues the path of least conflict when it comes to his marriage. He is willing to accept the hurt or disappointment...

What’s Your Story: Restoration from False Teaching

Back a couple of weeks ago, I put up a post called, What’s Your Story. In it I had the following request from you: I think there are many people who read this blog that have a story to tell. I want to hear it. It can be how God has worked in your marriage? An issue you have had or still have that you are struggling with? Something that your wife does that makes you feel respected? Something that has taught you how to be a better leader in your family? Something that you had to overcome and...

How Can I Know God’s Will for Me?

How Can I Know God’s Will for Me?

Photo by Jurica Koletić on Unsplash Sometimes, I think that we tend to assume that the most important things about God’s will are the external things. The decisions we make about who to marry, what job to take, what house to buy, what school the kids should attend, etc… But it is my belief that […]

How Can I Find God’s Will for Me?

Sometimes, I think that we tend to assume that the most important things about God’s will are the external things. The decisions we make about who to marry, what job to take, what house to buy, etc… But it is my belief that those things, though important, are quite secondary in God’s eyes to the […]
