Prayer truly changes things. I thank the Lord for all answered prayers. Sometimes, He answers quickly and sometimes it takes a little longer. Today, I'm thankful for the quick answer. My husband and I had an argument. What it was about doesn't matter, but what happened in it and after it. He wanted to leave for a couple of days just to get away and talk to relatives. I went to take a long bath and I began to just talk to the Lord about the situation. I asked the Lord to work it out for our good, that we wouldn't run to others first but run to Him. I invited the Lord in to work amongst us since we weren't speaking, and I felt He had heard my quiet prayer. My first response was to just retreat to my room until time for work, but instead I went in the living room and just sat down and watched t.v. with him quietly. God was working even though I couldn't see it. By the time I got ready to leave, he came outside as I was driving off and asked me to get out of the car. He hugged me and told me how sorry he was, and I apologized as well for the things I had said. You could just feel the love of God between us. He kissed me goodnight and told me he loved me. All I could do was just thank the Lord for that quick prayer answered.
We've only been married for 6 months, but we dated for 3 years before that. Man, how different it is when you can't leave and you have to actually deal with it. Well, some choose to leave, but I asked God to not let the breach get wider between us, but close it and draw us closer together in Him. God is faithful. My first marriage failed, but I know with God all things are possible to those who believe. I really want this marriage to work, and so does He. I asked the Lord to let everything, whether it be good or bad to work out for the better for us. I believe he will. We are both God fearing people, and as long as we keep God in the midst, I know He'll do His part.
Thanx to those who keep me and my family in prayer.
