Praying for God’s Will

Part 5 in the WordWashedWife series on prayer is written by my youngest DIL, Becky. Keep reading as she describes a time when her prayers changed. “As I began to come to terms with the change in our future, I started to realize that my prayers probably weren’t focused on the right thing. Although I was praying, my prayers were me-centered, not God-centered.”

Answered Prayers

Today’s post is the 4th in a Word WashedWife series on prayer. I believe you will enjoy reading my DIL, Sarah’s words about a scary time in her marriage to my son, JP. Keep reading: “JP and I met during a time when we were both far from God. My walk with God was distant and he had rejected his faith. We started dating in the summer of 2010 and that fall I transferred and joined JP as an Auburn student. We were inseparable. “

Iron Sharpens Iron

Today’s post is the 3rd in a WordWashedWife series on prayer. It is written by my daughter Madeline. I believe you will benefit from her post about a troublesome time in her marriage after having children. Keep reading: “There will be moments that your spouse will deeply disappoint and hurt you.  Notice I don’t say there may be, because there will be.  Marriage is the closest, most vulnerable, most intimate relationship a human can experience on Earth.  As a result, it has the power to wound in a way that you wouldn’t think possible.” 

Meet Me at the Peach

Today’s post is the second in a six part WordWashedWife series on prayer.

We have all faced times when we doubted that God was listening.  If we are truthful, we can all say that we have had the feeling that sometimes our prayers just bounce off the ceiling.  Today’s post addresses how to live through the spiritual dry times in your life- meet me at the peach!

3 Godly Goals

Micah was asking rhetorical questions and providing God’s answers.  In verse 8, he asks “what does the Lord require of you?”  In light of today’s topic, he is asking- “what are God’s goals for you this year?”  “How does God want you to live your life?” And then Micah states God’s answer.  It is simple, yet perfect- act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with God.  This, my friends, should be our top three goals this year and every year.  Keep reading.

The Best Gift

I think that what I feel about my children is kind of like what God must feel with us.  He has no needs, but He loves spending time with us.  As I consider what God wants from us this Christmas, I am sure that His answer is the same as Jody’s and my classic answer to our kids, “You!”  And God wants you too!
