I Fell Off the Hope Train

I have sat down to write a post for this Monday several different times today. I am having difficulty. 

It's Sunday evening, Valentine's Day. My husband and I had a fight earlier today. We argued over social events. This is a common theme of late in our home. So strange.

However, I am wondering if this is common in your unequally matched home as well. He wanted me to attend a BBQ with him. I didn't want to go. I wanted him to attend church with me. He didn't go.

Okay, is this real enough for you? Perhaps you didn’t want to hear all this but I can bet if you are unequally yoked, this is a common hurt in your life. I will also point out that although my husband and I have made some giant strides closer to healing a ton of our differences, our faith and social gaps still exist to some degree. I still struggle and it still hurts at times. So does he. 

It’s a bummer. I know so many of you are sitting at home on this day are also disappointed with your marriage. Valentine's Day can punctuate our feelings as it calls into sharp focus our romantic and married life. 

So this evening, I am wondering how you make it through this strange cycle we live in. First, we have hope. We see some glimmer of hope because our spouse took a tiny step closer toward God. Then we wait. 

 We wait. And we wait. And we wait…… 

Then whammy! A day like today happens and the reality of just how apart you remain, stirs to the surface and rips at your soul. Disappointment followed by disillusionment. 

So, today I want to hear how you pick yourself back up and jump back on the hope train? Thank you for sharing your life with me. Thank you for listening to me as I share the good, the bad and the ugly with you and you love me in spite of it all. 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!
