Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. - 3 John 1:2
You cannot change your spouse. That is what most couples spend a large part of their time trying to do -- change their spouse.
If you follow each of the steps we have been talking about you will see your marriage begin to bloom in front of your own eyes. It may take weeks. It may even take years, but regardless you are nurturing your relationship and by depending on God you will see results.
Turn your complaints about your husband into prayers and watch the Master work. Begin praying for what your husband needs. Pray for his heart, his attitude, his responsibilities before God. Pray for truth to replace lies. Pray for forgiveness to replace bitterness. Pray for a geniune breakthrough in your marriage. Then pray for your heart's desires -- for love and honor to become the norm.
Task: Begin praying today for your husbands's heart. Pray for three specific areas where you desire for God to work in your husband's life and in your marriage.
