  1. Grace thank you for today’s wonderful reading. I remember in my Marriage we are married me and my Husband 30 years in June this year. We where I can’t remember how many years married. But a bad row came up between us both. Because my Husband. He never went with anyone else. He always had in his mind because he not much money. I would leave him for someone else. I want a better house and life style. I had quite a time telling him. I made my vows until death do us part as the saying goes. My Husband wouldn’t have ever married me only I asked him to married me. Because he thought I don’t have much money to keep a wife and pay house hold bills too. I knew in my life I always wanted to be with him. We had bad row once. I looked up at my Marriage photo in our living room. I said to him that day. No way are you getting rid of me. I made my vows to stay I love you to much. So I do. So I did. Ever since that day we prayed to God told God this marriage is for life. Nothing going to brake it up. We looked at either and cried. Gave either a big hug and made up said sorry. My Husband said God has meant us to be together. I was being insecure. Because I thought you’d want better. Because I not a person with plenty of money who can give you nice things and a big house. I said I didn’t marry that. I married you. I we have the Lord and that’s all that matters. The Lord will provide all our needs. We have this we house. We got either and that’s all that matters. I don’t want the big flashy lifestyle. So all theses years later we are still together. We never forget to tell either we love either and put God first in our marriage. We read God’s word together. As we tell either especially my Husband God put us together. We remind either we will never let our relationship get that bad ever again. We are thankful for the Love God gave us to give either and the we house we have. Plus we say there are people in the world who are homeless and don’t have what we have. So we are thankful to God. We say Amen to that. Love today’s reading. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little xx keeping you all in incourage in prayer xx

    • Dawn,

      Congratulations on 30 years of marriage. It takes a lot of hard work to keep a marriage going & it appears you both have done it. Happy for you both!!

      Blessings 🙂

  2. Grace,

    Thank you for sharing the tender parts of your life. Next year will mark 20 years of marriage for hubby & I. We’ve had more than our share of ups, downs, twists & turns. But through it all we kept God at the center. Most men tend to hold their emotions close.
    When I sense my hubby is troubled I ask a few questions. Tell him I love him & thank him for working hard for us. We pray for each other daily. Looking over the past 20 years I know God put us together. Matthew 19:5-6 ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’ So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

    Blessings 🙂

  3. I’ve been praying for and believing God will restore a broken relationship for over a year now. I was feeling discouraged the last few days, thinking reconciliation may not be coming, it may not be God’s will. Last night I prayed, asking God to give me a word of encouragement that I’m going in the right direction. When I woke up to this devotional… well… Thank you God for blessings great and small!

  4. I to am praying for brokenness in our family. What is impossible for us is possible with God is something I cling to.
