Grace Pass

A GRACE PASS…

We are so excited to have the opportunity to have a guest blogger this month to share more on  "GRACE". Mary Helen is a pastor’s wife and mother who has a passion for writing to let Christian women know they are not alone; somewhere out there stands a wife, a mom, and a woman in the same shoes and a God who loves them dearly.  I know you will be … [Read More...]

Which Will You Choose

WHICH WILL YOU CHOOSE…

 “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen.” (2 Peter 3:18) So many times in my marriage I have the opportunity to choose how I'll react to situations. I can choose to be hateful, rude, and bitter or I can choose to be loving, forgiving, and gracious. It's not always … [Read More...]

The Power of Grace

THE POWER OF GRACE…

One of the biggest issues in my marriage, I believe, is unmet expectations.  When those expectations aren't met, I feel let down, disappointed, bitter, and angry. Lately, when I get angry, I just shut down and become silent or retreating to a room alone. It is as though the lack of my presence and silences is his punishment. Isn't that the … [Read More...]

Dont Forget The Key Ingrident

DON’T FORGET THE KEY INGREDIENT…

Can you imagine baking a cake, but forgetting to put the key ingredient in? Although some of the ingredients may differ, depending on the cake, the end goal is the same, right? However, the key ingredient to making sure the cake is held together is having flour. I can’t imagine trying to bake the cake with only sugar, flavoring, baking powder, … [Read More...]

Grace Upon Grace

GRACE UPON GRACE…

Grace, it’s all over the bible, actually its mention approximately 131 times in the NIV. So often we think grace is circular, that it is a revolving door in a way, I show you grace and you will show me grace. But that way of thinking kind of goes against the very definition of grace, and it’s certainly not biblical. It pretty much stops being grace … [Read More...]

Honey

SWEET AS HONEY…

Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones. (Proverbs 16:24) Grace, it's a word so often used. Yet, I don't know that everyone really understands its meaning. Grace is getting something that we don't deserve or unmerited favor from God. How can we show that same grace to our husbands? It's not always easy to … [Read More...]

Heart

EXPRESS YOUR HEART…

As he walks around the rubble, he sees proof of the enemy’s warfare. It’s real.  Although he remembers how the city looked, it’s only a vivid memory.  His home is destroyed, his people are heart-broken, and he lacks the knowledge to rebuild the walls.  Its looks impossible but faith wouldn’t let the enemy win. Nehemiah fasted and prayed for … [Read More...]

JOY OF THE LORD…

Our faith will always be challenged, but it will never be defeated.  So, how does that statement fit into your life?  Or your marriage?  Marriage is a covenant we make to work as God’s planned; together.   Yet, we don’t know what the journey of life will reveal.  Is it always pleasant or joyful?  No, but it’s an opportunity to show the glory of … [Read More...]

HIS JOY IS OUR STRENGTH…

We all face trying times in our marriages. It can get messy and sometimes downright ugly. When you have two sinners living under the same rough, there is bound to be confrontation and frustration. I've been there and I know you have too. We don't have to stay frustrated with our husbands though. We can be joyful and make it through those difficult … [Read More...]

GOING THROUGH…

There are days, weeks even, when I feel exhausted in my marriage. The Lord has clearly shown me that I am a spoil brat; I want what I want and I want it when I want it. If I express to my husband something I would like to change in our marriage and he doesn't respond how I think he should I pout. In the past I would have thrown a fit but now, … [Read More...]

JOY IS A CHOICE…

A few years ago I read a quote, “Joy is a choice.”  It’s a simple but powerful statement to measure not only my attitude but my heart.  It keeps my heart centered on WHO matters in my life Christ, so joy will be the result. Yet, what’s been stealing my joy is trying to be “the perfect wife” “perfect mother” and it’s even trying to be perfect … [Read More...]

IMITATING CHRIST IN OUR MARRIAGE…

“Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.” (Ephesians 5:1) As a Mama to little boys, I'm the first wife role model they see. Children are so impressionable, especially at an early age. Their little minds are blank, waiting to be filled with good or bad. We have a chance to impact them with our marriage and honor God. As wives, we have to … [Read More...]
