“I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine: he feedeth among the lilies” Song of Solomon 6:3, KJV.
We had reached a point in our marriage when things became very difficult. There was no romance, we were struggling financially, both exhausted from physical demands, and we were always arguing about little things. To say I was dissatisfied is an understatement. The enemy whispered in my ear, “He doesn’t care for you. He doesn’t know what he has. You would be happier with someone else.” But the truth is, I didn’t want someone else. The majority of women that end up in adulterous affairs didn’t desire the affair itself. They simply wanted to feel attractive, and loved, and made to feel like a woman and not a tool.
I didn’t like the way my husband made me feel, and I didn’t know how to help him understand.
It’s amazing how God knows our unspoken prayers, and He hears our cries. He knew what I needed and wanted, and although it took some time, seem like a long time, he helped my husband to see and understand.
Maybe you’re fighting with a man that don’t understand anything you’re saying, but who gives understanding to our hearts? Who turns on the light in our minds and helps us “get it”? God does. Sister, you have to believe that God knows what you have need of, and He will touch your husband’s heart when you believe. Until he gets it, receive God’s love. Let Him fill your cup to the overflow. You don’t have to go outside of your marriage to receive what God created your husband to provide. Just be patient and believe and you will receive the promise. He can turn your marriage into Song of Solomon.
Prayer: Father, I thank you for loving me. When my husband doesn’t seem to care, you reveal to me the truth. I receive your truth and refuse to believe the enemy’s lies. I choose to stay faithful to my vows, and I ask that you be my strength. Help me draw from you everything I need. I don’t want another man; I want the one I have. Help him see, God. Help us both understand how to love each other in a way that fills up our love tanks until it’s overflowing. Touch my marriage Lord and make it all you designed it to be. In Jesus name, Amen.
