Go to worship and take your children with you—with or without him. We enter the Kingdom one by one. Not in groups, nor by couples. If you’re not sold on your need for corporate worship, how will you convince your mate to join you? If you sit home, both your relationships with God and with each other will suffer. Your husband is watching your actions and reactions. Like my mama said, those actions speak louder than your words.
This past April, after years of working hard to support our family, God placed Dick in the position of having to choose retirement or death. For a man who had worked all his life, retirement was an albatross by another name.
But this man for whom God loves so much He gave His Only Son, is learning that there is life after retirement. He joined our weekly Precept Bible Study and God is answering my years of praying The LORD would develop in him a hunger for His Word. Dick is reveling in the glory of God’s Word. Yes, ladies, it’s a commitment. It is a long and sometimes difficult journey, but I can assure you that the reward today far surpasses the energy, time, and self-control God gives when you invest in the eternal soul of your husband.
“Your Word I have hidden in my heart that I might not sin against You” (Psalm 119:11 NKJV).
