Do you live with an unsaved spouse? Are you struggling to stay spiritual in a home that isnít? Do you beg your spouse every week to go to church with you? If so your not alone. These are all questions that we have faced or are facing. So I hope I am able to offer some hope and encouragement in regards to this subject.

The first thing I want you to know is donít give up!! Even though I know you are frustrated and donít know what to do. And sometimes truth be told it would be a lot easier to just give in and not live a Christian life, due to the problems and arguments it causes in the home. But again I say donít give up!! Thatís what the enemy wants.

You see I understand first hand this message, I lived it. Like many woman I got saved first and I will admit it was hard to come home to an unspiritual man. Its hard to raise your children according to Gods word when your mate is not saved.

It was very hard to stay positive every day when my spouse didnít understand me anymore. I had changed, I didnít like watching the same TV shows or listening to the same music. I suddenly became aware of every vulgar word and it would literally make my skin crawl and I would get so irritable when I would hear all that garbage coming from a show he was watching.

But the most important thing I learned about that season in my life, is you CANNOT make them do anything they donít want to do! The more I begged him to go to church the less he wanted to. The more I tried to ďpreach at himĒ the less interested he was. I was so frustrated, so I just began seeking the Lord in prayer asking the Lord to help me change him.

Then one day there was a quickening in my spirit and I felt as if the Lord was telling me, ďBe Still, donít worry about him YOU cannot change him, only I can change him, pray him through."

So I did. I quit worrying about him. I began focusing on my walk and just began treating him with more kindness, I didnít preach at him anymore and I became more forgiving. I just prayed for him every night that the Lord would change him.

And Praise The Lord, it worked!! My husband excepted Christ in our living room. That was a few years ago now. It happened for us, it will happen for you too. Just donít give up on him or her, love them into the kingdom, pray them through!

This is quoted from one of my favorite preachers, Pastor Jentezen Franklin his new book Right People, Right Place, Right Plan.

ďEvery marriage has an assignment. God didnít put you together just to have sex, a house payment and a two car garage. When you enter the kingdom of God, you receive an assignment. Your children have a divine assignment and the enemy wants to abort it. Thatís why divorce is so devastating; it not only affects the husband and the wife, but it destroys Godís assignment for the entire family.Ē

Remember that God has a plan for both of you, as a couple. Donít allow the enemy to cause division. Trust God to take care of your mate, release them to Him and He will do the rest!

Be Encouraged and Be Blessed
