Shut the BACK Door!

This post is for those of you who have left the back door open.

Shut it.

You have been swirling this idea around in your mind for some time.  You may even have others outside calling you to come out through that open door.

For some, it is just too hard to keep fighting.  For others, the silence is deafening.  Either way, there is an option on your table that does not need to be an option.

I'm talking about the idea you keep thinking to divorce your husband. 

Stop it.  

Stop chewing on it.  Stop entertaining the idea that it will be better to just leave.  It will not.

That is a LIE.  And we know where lies come from.

Marriage is not easy.  It is never going to be easy.  It will be hard stuff many days. 

But nothing worth having was ever achieved with ease! 

Marriage is no different.  You will have to work at it. 

Work it.

You will have to forgive (a lot)...seventy time seven includes husbands

You will have to give of yourself when you want to be getting for yourself.

God Himself has joined you together!  

No man can separate you!

That covenant lasts until death! 

So if you feel a draft or a breeze in your marriage, it may be that you have left the back door open.

If this is you: 

Shut the back door!

  1. Some people might say it's not that simple, but it really is. It comes down to making a choice. You choose to entertain certain options, or you choose not to. I like your straight talking style. This is a good reminder for a dreary winter week.


Love hearing from you.
