Spotlight: Spiritually Unequal Marriage

Spotlight on Spiritually Unequal Marriage, a blog I stumbled on through a weekly meme, Thankful Thursday. The women behind the blog Lynn and Dineen are also authors of Winning Him Without Words.

From a few brief visits to SUM, it's obvious they are a blessing to wives experiencing the hardships of a marriage that is spiritually unequal. Meaning the husband and wife lack a united front -- off balance concerning spiritual matters connecting to and concerning Jesus.

Wives can easily feel weary at times because their husband's don't get it. Like crashing waves in the ocean the husband and wife collide with differences in perspective, motivation, and who ultimately should get the credit for all things good. More than once the wife has felt the undertow of crashing waves taking her out to sea, and exhausted trying to keep her head above water when she feels on all accounts that she's sinking.

Through our dark and stormy seasons, God is faithful to bring each of us to shore on an island of hope. SUM is one of those resting spots on such a tranquil island to refresh the weary wife and give her hope as Lynn and Dineen share their testimony in a personal and transparent way.

Encouraging you to seek, for you shall find. Cry out to God, and He will answer. Meditate on the Word of God and get filled. Connect with other Believers for support and encouragement. Come to the end of yourself, finally, and lean on the Lord.
