Re: Please Pray for my Sister (Regarding her Husband)
Sweetie, I really, really do understand! Since I have gone through this stuff, I know how much it hurts. There is no worse hurt in the world than to be 'let down' by the man you love. We just don't seem to realize when we are younger, but oh my, if only we could understand that a man is NOT going to change just because we marry him!
Our love can't change him. No matter what we do, they are gonna do what they want to do...UNTIL THE LORD REACHES HIM! I'm telling you from experience --ONLY the Lord Jesus Christ can change a man and then (and only then!) will he grow up. But, for the Lord to reach him, your sister has got to get VERY serious about her relationship with the Lord.
Please, please tell her that I have put her and her little baby, and her marriage, on my daily Prayer list. I pray over those names each and every day. And I promise you, Sweetie. I WILL pray for your sister, that God gives her wisdom and shows her as clearly as he showed me what he wants her to do.
But...please help me pray for her and that husband of hers. He honestly sounds just like my husband was. But, oh my goodness...once the Lord got through to him and changed him, it was really like he was a different man. The Lord CAN change her husband if he can change mine!! He really can! (The Lord can make such a difference that your whole family will be AMAZED!)
But, your sister is going to HAVE to take the first step in getting her life exactly like God wants. This is serious business. I'm sure she does not want to live this way for the rest of her life. ( I didn't, and I reached the point where I could not live that way one more day. It's really a horrible life and I know she is hurting.)
Remember, I promise to pray EVERY DAY!
My favorite scripture: Malachi 3:16
"Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name!" (Every time we speak of the Lord, or even THINK of him--its written down in a book of remembrance!)
