So this week I decided I am just going to do this blog. I kept telling myself it had to be this super special topic with these super deep insights and had to be SUPER!! Also I still haven’t quite got this whole WordPress platform figured out and was using that as an excuse as well. The Lord got a hold of me and said , “just write Lisanne”. I want to be sincere and open when I tell you I struggle with that. But I desire to be obedient and have waited to long to do as He asks. So here, this day, I commit to you, (anyone who happens to read this), that I will post 3 times per week. It may be short , it may be long, it may be whatever it may be , but I commit.
This last week I began “Power of a Praying Wife” by Stormie Omartian, with a FB group and already I am feeling blessed by it. Marriage is hard, it is work, and just because we happen to believe in Jesus doesn’t make it any easier. Instead of , “change him Lord”, Stormie shares the best prayer is , “change me Lord”, because ultimately I can only let the Lord change me and by His polishing and perfecting of me to be the Godly wife He calls me to be, the Lord can and will change my husband. The change though, is between him and God. I am called to yield to God for ME and in my obedience change gon’ come!! I have faith this will bring my marriage to a new and better place. How do I know you ask? Because God is faithful and when I humble myself and step aside to let Him work in me and my marriage, He will.
Romans 10:11 For the Scripture says, “WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.”
