Thankful Thursday - The Voice of God


Lynn at Spiritually Unequal Marriage
could not have picked a better topic for this week than Obedience. Several posts down you can read about the disappointment my hubby and I are working through.

"And this is love: that we walk in obedience to His commands. As you have heard from the beginning, His command is that you walk in love."
~ 2 John 1:6 NIV

I'm not really sure how to put my thoughts into words today, but I'll try.

  • I'm thankful that the Lord loves me, just as I am.
  • I'm thankful that God led me to my husband
  • I'm thankful that my husband is the spiritual leader of our home
  • I'm thankful that I have the opportunity to follow God's will for my life
  • I'm thankful that my husband loves the Lord and follows His will
  • I'm thankful that God provides all our needs
  • I'm thankful to have such a wonderful church family that loves us, flaws and all
Summing this up: Even though a group of men in Wichita don't feel my husband meets their "criteria" for a licensed minister, God knows my husbands heart. He knows how much we both love, adore, and worship HIM. We will follow God's will for our lives, even without a piece of paper. We will continue to fellowship with, disciple, and/or teach in our current church home until He calls us somewhere else. While I'm not the best at obedience, God sent me a wonderful husband to help me when I fall. Praise HIM!

God is indeed good... all the time. Even in the midst of our disappointment. Hoping He reveals the "bigger and better" He has for you quickly... blessings!
