I have been talking to her for years about these subjects and she has finally admitted that there is a personal God who is responsible for all creation. The rest, I hope, will come in time (i.e believeing in Jesus, etc...)Patrick

I've been unemployed for 3 years so I could stay at home with my two girls and since then we've been barely surviving on a minimal income from my husband's new business. We had to sell our house and move in with my parents because we are at rock bottom financially. I haven't lost my hope that God put us in my parent's house for a reason and that all will work out for the good.
Good news, however, my husband was not a Christian when we got married 7 years ago and I prayed hard and cried a lot. Finally last summer, he accepted the Lord and we've been celebrating since. He's still a baby christian, but is at least willing to learn and listen. In fact we are doing a Bible study at least once a week with my parents. My dad is a church deacon and Bible study leader, so maybe God put us in this house so my husband could get some quality discipleship. He definitely needs it.
So don't lose hope if your spouse is unsaved....I'm a believer in miracles for sure now.

Sacrifice and offering,
Are not what I require,
Obedience is a blessing,
That is what I desire.
So I change the "I" to "You" and sing it to myself for encouragement from time to time.
1 Corinthians 7:10-16
10 And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: 11 But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife. 12 But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away. 13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy. 15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace. F18 16 For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how F19 knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?

Guilt is said to be expiated when it is visited with punishment falling on a
substitute. Expiation is made for our sins when they are punished not in
ourselves but in another who consents to stand in our room. It is that by which
reconciliation is effected. Sin is thus said to be "covered" by vicarious
satisfaction. The cover or lid of the ark is termed in the LXX. hilasterion,
that which covered or shut out the claims and demands of the law against the
sins of God's people, whereby he became "propitious" to them. The idea of
vicarious expiation runs through the whole Old Testament system of sacrifices.

ChurchGirl wrote:Hello Saints! I am currently taking a hiatus in Sacramento with my mom for a week....maybe longer. Both Mike and I agreed the stress was just too much for the girls and so with my mom fronting gas (bless her heart) I am receiving some soulful nourishment and my wonderful stepdad is cooking all the meals.
Yesterday was the first time in I don't know how long I actually got to eat with my kids before they had finished eating.
Let's not stop praying for each other, in fact I challenge us all here to become even more diligent in prayer for each other and our families. I KNOW God is about to do a miraculous work in all our lives! In fact, I proclaim that He right now is moving in ways we can't even begin to imagine. All for our good! All for His Glory and all for us. WOW!
Spreading Salt wrote:We just got back from a great weekend in Seattle with the kids. It was a good time! During our stay there, my husband left his debit card in an ATM machine. We didn't notice it until about midday and talk about bringing down the fun!! I started praying right away, for my mood more than the card! Turns out, we kept our cool and didn't get too angry. Went back to the place and God showed up. Someone had turned in the card!!!! Praise God!!!!!
My husband was a different person for the rest of the weekend. He kept bringing up how it was so strange that we found the card, that someone had turned it in. If only he would open his eyes and realize that God is truly good and cares for all of us. His hand was all over this one!!!
Have a great day family!

He also blames me for becoming more conservative.
It's hard, ladies! I hear all of you.
I'm at the point of trying to convey what a blessing faith is by example. And God throws me some miracles that Scott sees, like finding a kitten lost for 2 days in the heat, 3/4 mile from home!
