Such a great article! I am particulary fond of 6. I had a friend who sought my counsel once, and turned around and tried to argue with me about the advice she sought. I remember thinking, I can be really mad at her, or I can continue to pray for her. I did the latter thankfully. I hope she really did seek the truth.

Thanks Chevelle for your words of encouragement. I’m so glad you chose to take a deep breath and think–the Lord knows.

God bless,

This was a GREAT list for me to consume and digest! How easy it is to slip into pride about being the ‘one’ with the ‘answer’

I think when I began to experience my husband’s admiration and preference for other women and openly praised them while ignoring me and any of my own aspects I would have hoped to hear his appreciation for …I then turned more and more to study and efforts to allow God to work in me so I would have something of value to contribute.

I need to consider more that the approval of GOD and His love for me is what is most enduring and important compared to the continuing lack of care and love from a husband who has seemed to find NO value or reason to care for me.

Thank you for this exhortation .Many of these are so needed for me to remember and practice, I look at this as my assignment going forward.

I may have learned some great things from study and corrections from the Lord as I have gone along ….but passing this on is something that is often not received and perhaps it is because of my heart not being instructed in how or not being in the proper attitude.

Very wise words.

Thanks Kris. Your situation is tough and of course hindsight is better than foresight. But I believe God can use you greatly to encourage other women dealing with this issue as you find the grace to forgive and to keep pushing forward in this walk of faith.

God bless!

Crystal your 10 commandments was perfect…I am asking the Lord for knowledge as I want to plant the seed of God’s word to someone who is hurting terribly…number 9 was right on time and exactly what I needed to read…I am a new babe in Christ as this will hopefully be the first person that I can share what God has done for me in my own life…truly the Lord’s direction rather than my own understanding…sister in Christ…

“Proverbs 3: 1-6 advises that at the core of a person, “on the table of thine heart,” in “thine own understanding” — allow God to provide direction, not self.
When one does that, the individual can provide no advice that is not exampled by one’s behavior. Of course, no individual credit can be taken for the sincerity either. It is God operating through the instrument of The Believer.”

Excerpt From: Mike Stair. “The World’s Favorite Bible Verses.”
