This Motivational Monday God surly interceded and brought something to my eyes. Checking my emails I came across this article that said, "Why Faith Can Help Marriage Work."  Now I am a work in progress, and I admit, that I believe in God, but sometimes I have a problem with letting God.  My faith is  under construction, so this title really hit something in me.  It listed tools that you should have to help your marriage:  Humility, Forgiveness, God's Sovereignty, and Financial Provision.  At the end it challenges you to  pick one of the tools and let it become your attitude your mindsets, and implement them in your marriage. Maybe you will come together in prayer about a stressful situation, maybe you will stop looking to each other to change and start looking to yourself, or maybe you will offer forgiveness for a hurt that occurred many years ago.

Whatever it is, turn to God first and each other second. Let Him be the foundation of your marriage so that when things get good, you can say, “God did this!” Because that’s the point of it all anyway, isn’t it?

Are you up for the Challenge?  RWOC knows you can do it!!!!!

HOT TOPIC TUESDAY: My marriage is better than yours!


Have you ever had someone compare their marriage to yours and make you feel like she does things so much better than you do?  Like because she doesn't face the problems that you have you're irrelevant? or because she's been there done that you're overreacting?  How do you deal with this kind of woman?

Don't Quit

by Anonymous
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and its turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When they might have won, had they stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit!

HOT TOPIC TUESDAY: Getting in Shape?


There are so many people out there that want to get in shape.  So many different gyms to join, diets to try, and equipment to use, but how do you really put your all into a diet, or excerise routine when your partner doesn't have the motivation to eat right and work out like you do?

Lord, I pray that you would protect my marriage from anything that would harm or destroy it.  Shield it from our own selfishness and neglect, from the evil plans and desires of others, and from unhealthy or dangerous situations.  May there be no thoughts of divorce or infidelity in our hearts, and none in our future.  Set us free from past hurts, memories, and ties from previous relationships and unrealistic expectations of one another.  I pray that there be no jealousy in either of us, or the low self-esteem that precedes that.  Let nothing come into our hearts and habits that would threaten the marriage in any way, especially influences like alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography, lust, or obsessions. 

Unite us in a bond of friendship, commitment, generosity, and understanding.  Eliminate our immaturity, hostility, or feelings of in adequacy.  Help us to make time for one another, alone, to nurture and renew the marriage and remind ourselves of the reasons we were married in the first place.  I pray that my husband will be so committed to you, Lord, that his commitment to me will not waiver, no mater what storms come.  I pray that our love for each other will grow stronger every day, so that we will never leave a legacy of divorce to our children.

HOT TOPIC TUESDAY: Balancing Marriage, Self, & Motherhood


Walking on a running path I noticed that there are more men jogging and pushing their children in strollers, and this made me smile. It also made me wonder are these men dealing with the same confusion, fatigue, pride, and errands that I'm dealing with. How are they balancing everything? How do you balance?

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during
the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one
set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
you have not been there for me?"
The Lord replied,
"The times when you have
seen only one set of footprints,
is when I carried you."

HOT TOPIC TUESDAY: Do I want to remarry you?


I'm not sure if the U.S. is thinking about doing this, but I thought I would share it with you all anyway.  In its effort to decrease the 50% divorce rate in Mexico they are proposing that after 2 years of marriage you have to renew your vows.  You decide if you want to or not.  Do you think this is going to be affective?  Do you think its ok for someone to try marriage and then opt out?  Does it devalue the sanctity of marriage?

There is so much going on these days, attacks on marriages, death, financial burdens, sickness, etc.  These things are not only attacking our RWOC Sisters, but there attacking those that we love and care for around us.  At this time I would like to motivate you all to not only pray for RWOC, pray for your loved ones, pray for your enemies, and pray for yourselves for God does not give us more than we can handle.  Look to God for strength...
