I Am Standing For The Healing Of My Marriage!

Standing pixabay solitude-455768_640

I am standing for the healing of my marriage.
I will not give up, give in,
give out, nor give over
’til the healing takes place.

I made a vow; I said the words; I gave the pledge.
I gave a ring; I took a ring; I gave myself.

I trusted GOD, and said the words, and meant the words:
in sickness and in health,
in sorrow and in joy,
for better or for worse,
for richer or for poorer,
in good times and in bad…

I will NOT sit down, let down, slow down,
calm down, fall down, look down nor be down

I refuse to put my eyes on outward circumstances,
or listen to prophets of doom.

I will not buy into what is trendy, worldly, popular,
convenient, easy, quick,
thrifty, or advantageous.
Nor will I settle for a cheap imitation of God’s real thing.

I will not seek to lower God’s standard,
twist God’s will, rewrite God’s word,
violate God’s covenant,
or accept what God hates—which is namely… divorce!

In a world of filth, I will stay pure.
Even though surrounded by lies I will speak the truth.
Where hopelessness abounds,
I will hope in GOD.

Where revenge is easier, I will bless instead of curse;
and where the odds are stacked against me,
I will trust in God’s faithfulness.

and I will not acquiesce, compromise, quarrel or quit…
I have made the choice.

I have set my face, entered the race, believed the Word,
and TRUSTED GOD for the outcome.

I will allow neither the reaction of my spouse,
nor the urging of my friends,
the advice of my loved ones,
economic hardship,
nor the prompting of the devil
to make me let up, slow up, blow up, or give up

  1. My husband also left four years ago. My marriage had been really good at times and really rough at times. I have always stood for marriage; prayed hard for my marriage; and stood when he left. I joined rmm three years ago which has been a time of accelerated growth for me in my relationship with God. My husband divorced me two years ago; but has never stopped coming to visit me. I understand everyone’s exhaustion. It’s hard to see him every day as he comes to see his kids; but never shows any desire to connect with me. I’m so grateful to the Lord that he is committed to his kids and grand baby. There has been many women (Facebook; texting; and meeting them during the last years of our marriage and separation). I’m exhausted in praying and seeing no change. I have no Christian friends who are supporting me after this long. Only my mother. Even my siblings have given up and are concerned I will never know love or marriage again. Being this tired and lonely for my husband it has become more of a struggle. I will join you on Monday fasting and prayer. I just got back from Manta Ecuador on a mission trip and saw amazing miracles that mass prayer brought about. I pray God will here our joined prayers; our joined sorrows; our joined hearts beseeching Him to move in a mighty way on our behalf to His glory and honor; in Jesus name!

  2. Hi, my Christian wife and I have been married less than 2 years. She has left the marriage now for 7 months and has decided that in a couple of months she wants us to work on the divorce. 😥 Very sad and hard on my heart for her. Don’t know what else to do.
