SCTV – Wives, do you need encouragement today? God ALWAYS offers HOPE in Marriage

Are you wondering if your life or marriage is too far gone to be redeemed by God?  Do you know someone in this situation?  The GOOD NEWS is that in God, there is always HIS HOPE in the midst of our lives and marriages…

The guests on this Smelling Coffee TV episode have the most incredible story.  If you knew them today, you’d never know the depths from which they have come.  In fact, they met and married within 3 months and no one in their lives could imagine that they would last for six months.  But, praise God, they just celebrated 45 years of marriage and are some of the most dedicated servants of the Lord!

Sherry Williamson humbly and openly shares her testimony of struggling to feel loved and beautiful all of her life.  This that desire drove her to make some wrong choices, but God delivered and redeemed both her, her husband, and their marriage.   This is SUCH AN ENCOURAGEMENT!!!

A few sound bites for those who are seeking the Lord and need encouragement in marriage:  

Don’t give up.  Pray for your spouse.  Thank God for the good qualities of your spouse.  Pray for your humility and understanding.  Pray for your broken heart to hear the Lord.  Pray for your spouse to have a broken heart to hear the Lord.  Pray for your boldness, but don’t nag.  Find a church and plug yourself in.  Keep yourself in God’s Word.  That’s where you will find support and encouragement while you love and keep trusting God to work in your live and in the life of your spouse.

SCTV - HOPE in Marriages

God will always give us Hope as we set our hearts upon Him.

May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.   Romans 15:13 (Amp)
