Good afternoon my sisters. I am going to have to keep this short today because I am buried in work. I suppose that is a good thing. I also have to read half of my Bible assignment from yesterday, all of today, respond to emails for the ministry, respond to work emails, clean my unbelievably disgusting bathroom, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. LOL
I feel like I am abandoning all of you & it is killing me. I HATE when I can't write the daily message. I at least wanted to send over the challenge so that you all could keep moving forward. I hope that you all forgive me.
I imagine that as real estate picks up, this may happen more often. Or, I just need to get a partner. Hmmm. Actually we have been thinking about that & I have a lunch meeting next week. Someone who can free me up to focus on this ministry & more volunteer/charity work. YES! I am so excited by the thought of it. Please Lord, let this work for all of us.
Day Twenty Nine -
"A prudent man foresees evil, & hides himself; the simple pass on, & are punished." Proverbs 27:12
As you near the end of this 30 Day Encouragement Challenge, take time to think about your husband's responses to the wickedness of the culture, the media, etc. Does your husband recognize & avoid evil? Does he regularly turn his back on pornography, sexual temptations, & the urge to lie & cheat?
This is a valuable character trait. Like Joseph in the Old Testament, who fled from the wicked advances of Potiphar's wife, this takes an understanding that these kinds of sins are first & foremost, sins against God. (Genesis 39:9)
Praise your husband when he recognizes & turns his back on wickedness. If you can think of a circumstance where your husband stood for righteousness, remind him of that today, & express your gratitude.
Day Twenty Nine Prayer -
Pray that your husband will choose healthy, God-honoring activities. Pray that he will not live in bondage to any questionable habits or hobbies, but that he will experience freedom in holiness as he yields to the Spirit's control. (1 Corinthians 6:12; 10:31; 2 Timothy 2:4)
