Hello everyone, still standing

Today my Pastor shared a message that really hit home to me..the bible says we are to be the salt of the earth and light to the world and the enemy is waring in every area and is doing everything he can to get us from being salt to the earth

 

My Pastor shared that marriages are under attack and the war is not with us humans but with the evil spirits (satan) 

 

My Pastor shared how this Man was so mean and abusive to his wife and she continued to be salty to him even with all that..he said she could not go to church anymore..but she told him that is one thing I cannot allow you to stop me from doing..so she went to church and came back from the evening service and he locked the door and left her out in the cold as she slept next to the door. When morning came he opened the door and she rolled into the house and got up and said Goodmorning Honey, Is there anything I can do for you today?..long story short because of her saltiness he gave his life to Christ in the future 

 

I pray to God that I will maintain my saltiness and it's the truth that we need the Holy Spirit to work in us to be able to do this..The Holy Spirit will help!

 

Saltiness is Love 

 

“You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless.

Matthew 5:13 NLT

 

 

Don't lose your saltiness no matter what!!

Maintain! Maintain! Maintain!

Holy Spirit help me to Maintain!

 

Apply these to your marriage!

Earlier today I felt like giving up but when I heard this message today at church I snapped out of it

 

My wife is still distant and acts as tho I'm a stranger and gets weird when I'm around and makes faces

BUT!!

God!

spoke through my Pastor today and he told me after church don't be moved by what you see, keep on being salty

  • It is joyous when we hear, or read and find a message that brings us peace and guidance like that.  Two days ago that message may not have hit home like it did this time.  And  what you hear today may not  hit home like it might next week.  

    when you feel like giving up remember this  message. And remember to lead your heart and not follow your fleshy emotions.  and that you entered a covenant with her along with God and what it would mean to break that covenant.  When it gets to tough the thing that can keep us going is knowing we don't want to see God's face and say we broke a covenant with Him.

  • That acting weird and making faces. It's just her trying to justify to herself that she is in the right in her choices.  And also a way to try to break you so she can say, See, you haven't changed.  And sometimes it's her way of trying to get you to agree with a d or separation so she can point the finger at you and say you wanted it too. so she can say a d didn't fall completely on her.

    Keep standing for your marriage.  You will not regret it.

  • How hard is that to do? Sleep on the doorstep then, when the door is unlocked, go in and offer your service. I pose that question for myself. I have such a hard time with that but I have managed to do it a couple times over this last year. It really does work but foolish pride almost always gets in the way.

    Your pastor gave you (and us) some wise words.

    I am a firm believer that our spouses will change one day. It may be 20 years from now and it may be too late but some day they will see that they were wrong in running away. As long as we keep being salty our lives will shine until they do come to that conclusion.

  • Amen.

  • Amen.

  • Hey Tim why did my wife close back up when she was opening up and was ready to give me a chance again for the 2nd time ever since the dares started..but it wasn't something I did to disrespect her this time..it was not performing in bed well and she goes back further than before..why?? I don't understand, I'm not expecting anything but it just makes me curious..

  • It took her a lot of strength to choose to make the decision to separate or divorce. (Sorry, cant remember what her choice was).  And when she chose to separate, she hardened her heart and vowed to herself she would not back down, no matter what.  That she's in charge and made up her mind and was not going to change when you gave your "empty" promises.  

    So, now she's chosen to commit to her decision.  And every time she drops her guard and warms up in the slightest, she will later realize she softened and to prove to you she isn't going soft on you she will harden up for a bit to prove to you she is still adamant in separating.  

    She is also hardening back up to justify her behavior to herself.  

  • She may also be reacting to God's conviction and doesn't realize it, but is taking the stress of His conviction and taking it out on you.  

  • She also doesn't believe you are changing, and thinks it's all a ruse to win her back and if she softens, you will go back to the old you.  And she doesn't want that hurt or to have to got through seeking a separation again.  

    YOu need to stay consistent in the dares while she is on the roller coaster going up and down in her emotions.  

    when she softens up it is a dangerous time where your flesh will want to lighten up on what you are doing in the dares.  

  • Hey Tim, would it be a good idea to initiate intercourse with her at this time??..2 days ago she said she wanted me..until I messed up and disappointed her and she cried and closed back up..what if she is afraid of asking me that she wants to go again..I feel i would be taking control of God if I did..but I want to make sure..I know that she wants intercourse but she's afraid im not ready?? What to do???

  • Hey Tim, just looking for a little advice. I am on day 23. Have not spoken to him in almost 2 weeks and now he is seeing someone else...I keep praying for him even though there is no contact. I don't know what to do to get him to see the changes in me.
