This week’s video with Jennie Allen touched on a big issue for so many women.
What do we do when our husband is not ready to pray “Anything“?
A reader asked – is praying all we can do? Jennie answers this question for us and Angela shares an area where she and her husband are in different places (with the permission of her husband) in today’s video:

I loved where Jennie said:
“I think when wives decide “this is what it looks like to be spiritual” our husbands can feel shut down because they are working their tail off in obedience to God to provide for us and we’re sitting there writing it off like it’s no big deal at all.”
Isn’t this our tendency? We forget to be grateful for the everyday things our husbands are doing because we get focused on the one thing they are not doing. Then our discontentment with our husband and marriage begins to grow. Before long we have slipped into a place of sin when our true goal was unity toward godliness!
“But godliness with contentment is great gain.” ~ I Timothy 6:6
Contentment is godliness. And contentment will speak volumes to our husband.
We can have joy in our marriage when we are not able to see our “Anything” dreams fulfilled because our joy does not come from circumstances but from the Lord.
Be strong friends. Keep praying and waiting on the Lord.
