This blog endeavors to generate hope and healing in the midst of broken, hurting marriages.
EssJee is one of the most determined standers I have had the opportunity to minister to during the beginning of his crisis. There is no doubt that the Lord has His hand on this man.The ministry that the Lord has given him is helping so many people to understand that even if you do have marriage problems, you don’t just give up, walk out the door, sign a few papers, and it’s over. God's plan for marriage is until DEATH do you part. Not any time before. EssJee and I have been called and chosen for this ministry. He and I have a job to do to teach those that the Lord brings to us that we are to never give up on our spouse.
The job that we have is to continually encourage those who are hurting from the pain of a covenant husband or wife wanting to call it quits, separate, or even go so far as divorce. Standing for your marriage is something that the Lord is calling ALL married people to do. It doesn’t matter what country you live in, what your family, friends, co-workers, or even your church thinks about what you are doing. -Stacey Hayes
It's been awhile since I've written a devotion, but i felt the prompting of the Holy Spirit to write and tell you all what God has been sharing and teaching me and wants me to teach you. God has been speaking to me so much lately, and I know that we all need encouragement, so please open your heart to hear what God is saying to his people. First, God wants you all to know, as standers, that He wants you to LET GO of your spouse. WHOA KRYSTAL! What does that mean? For years as a stander, I've often heard that we need to let go, and so many of us do not know what that means, here is the meaning. Quit focusing on your spouse. Quit looking at what your spouse is doing, quit being anxious, turn your WHOLE FOCUS on God. Nothing less than everything. Come to a complete point of contentment in your stand. If you haven't, if you're still anxious and doubting or wondering if God will really restore your marriage, then you haven't let go. LET GO and LET
Say What Now??? MASTERING MARRIAGE I’m sure you were not expecting the woman who wrote “Motivated to Love” to write a blog of this nature.
