But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. — 2Peter 3:8-9
Friday was my 21st wedding anniversary. My sweet hubby surprised me with reservations at a very nice restaurant downtown. We sat at a circular booth table, snuggled together on one side. He'd even told the maître d' ahead of time about our celebration. So sweet.
Though time is still passing and my dear husband seems as set in his atheism as ever, I found myself praising God for the man sitting next to me and our life together. Despite our unequally yoked circumstances, I find great joy in our marriage. And God's abundant blessing.
The Scriptures above encouraged me that though I may not see anything changing, God has the situation completely in control. The future holds great promise—full of God's faithfulness.
Have a blessed weekend, steeped in the joy of his salvation and the promises of God.

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!
