It's Never Too Late

Sometimes I wonder how I have made it through life this far.  I can't believe how thick my head is sometimes! I don't know if there are any others like me out there but if there is just one, then I need to share the most wonderful thing that has happened to me in the past week and a half so you don't wait till you are so close to Medicare that you can hear the door creaking open!

I got an email that invited me to get a book by Sharon Jaynes entitled "Praying for your Husband From Head to Toe". Yes I have prayed on and off for the wonderful man I married 40 years ago but it was when there was a crisis or something I was sure God needed to change in him so we would be happier. {what I really was telling God was that my husband needed some tweeks so I would be happier.} So I thought why not and bought the book.

The first part of the book explains all the parts of my husband and why I should be praying for them. Kind of an eye opener to me so I kept reading. The second part of the book is where she uses scripture to back up each of those parts to pray for and then gives examples of how to pray. {I am very glad for examples as I said before my head is pretty thick.}

So along with Sharon I start to pray for my husband. {I tell God first that I am going to give this a go to see just what will become of this.} God is so faithful and so patient with "thick headed wives". God knows my needs so well and instant gratification seems to be something I need. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to actually see answer to prayer that happens in the same day but I was blown away by God's blessings.

The first day my husband and I had a small altercation and he said something to me that hurt my feelings. {they are so easily hurt} But in the next moment I heard him tell me he was sorry! Well, I don't know about you but that was a first for me. I was so grateful and praising God that  I don't think I touched ground for the rest of the day.

I was pretty excited to pray the next day to see what God had in store. We had a home malfunction {water heater broke down} and he told me to go on ahead to the gym with out him and he would wait for the repair man. I said that I had a few errands to run after but would be home directly. I went to the  gym and then to the grocery store and got a phone call from my husband. I was sure he was going to ask when I would be home but no another huge surprise, he said " I just wanted to tell you to please be careful as the weather had turned ugly and be safe on your way home. I love you." Well, I don't know if any one in the store noticed but there was a smile and a warm feeling all the way to my toes as I went through the check out lane.

I am so privileged to be able to pray for the man I dearly love and see God's hand working not only in his life but God is changing me in the process. I didn't think I could be more in love with him but each day there are little surprises from my husband for me that God is showering me with. I have changed my reason for praying for my husband, not to be happier but that my husband has God's complete covering over his entire body and that he is blessed.

So if you are a haphazard prayer for that man of yours you need to start covering from Head to Toe with your prayers.

    1. By all means get yourself one and start praying.

  2. Love spurred my interest in that book. I do, admittedly, sometimes pray haphazardly for that man I love and share my life with. Thanks!

    1. I can't believe it someone like me! Lift that man of yours up and let God do His miracles.
