It is through Christ who strengthens us that we can attend church alone and thrive in our experience.
I attend church alone. I abandoned my self-consciousness years ago. I can walk into the auditorium and sit in the front row. Okay, the second to the front row. I purposely look for another woman seated alone. I will sit down by her and wait for the Spirit to open a door for conversation. Sometimes we talk, sometimes not.
I don’t feel angry prior to leaving for church and arriving home is much easier today than in years past.
I have peace. I am thriving in this part of my Christian faith journey. I can still stumble from time-to-time and those old frustrations will invade my heart. Now, however, I know what to do with them and I don’t suffer as long as in years past. Praise God, neither does my spouse.
I lead an active life through my church. I don’t over commit myself but serve in one area that is meaningful and rewarding.
So when Sunday arrives, pray, rejoice and relax. God has a perfect plan for our lives, our spouses, and our marriages. You can take that promise to the bank! Be blessed! Lynn

Marching Around Jericho is a spiritual guide. As you read through the pages, powerful and transformative instruction and equipping takes place. We follow Jesus as he leads us around the walls, imparting kingdom truths with each passing, finally arriving at the gates of the walled-off city, our spouse’s unbelieving heart. After the circles in prayer are complete, we arrive fully prepared to command the walls to crumble and be removed, making a way for our spouse to step from the rubble of lies and captivity, into faith and freedom!
