I can't even begin to tell you how much I love and admire today's Friend Friday guest. I have used her story many times in counseling other women. She is one of my modern day heroines, quietly living a bold faith despite the valleys. Oh, the valleys she's walked!
She sent me this prayer this morning, "I pray women will be encouraged, strengthened, and that their faith will increase after reading this post. It helped me see more clearly what God has done after putting it all into words. This is a reason why journaling is so helpful."
One more thing, to protect her man, she's posting anonymously. God bless you, friend. Praying for you.
I guess you could say that I’m the perfect example of a “goodie two shoes” gone wrong. Having grown up in a respectable Catholic home, I took pride in my strong morals and good character. I was the last girl you’d expect to fall for a blue-eyed, blond-haired bad boy, but when you're in “love,” crazy things can happen. Like getting pregnant right before your senior year of college.
Of course, my life wasn’t the only one that got turned upside down. Remember that bad boy? How do you think he felt being a footloose freshman one minute, and a dad-to-be the next? We were both young, scared, and in way over our heads, but at least we had each other.
Except it wasn’t quite that simple. We both wanted to be a part of our daughter’s life, but we had different opinions about what that should look like. I wanted him to marry me. He wasn’t ready for that, but I didn’t really give him any other option. He could choose to get married or risk losing a relationship with his baby girl. And so we said, “I do.”
Clearly, our circumstances weren’t exactly the ideal foundation for a lifetime of love together. In fact, I can say with certainty that we were well on our way to being just another divorce statistic. Until God stepped in.
Through a gospel mailing sent by a local church, God opened my eyes to understand Jesus’ birth, death, and resurrection. The truths I had heard and seen many times before were suddenly so clear! God saved me that day, the first of many miracles He would work in my life and marriage.
But fixing all of our relationship dysfunction was not one of them. My husband worked all the time. We argued about money and the hours he spent away from home. He wanted me to get a job when our daughter was still young, and I wanted to raise her at home. Because he was gone so much, I just started making family decisions without him, which created even more division between us.
We had both done a great job making a mess of our marriage. Yes, we. I certainly bore my fair share of the responsibility. I didn’t realize back then how important it was to honor my husband. To encourage him and let him know how much I appreciated his hard work to support our family, flaws and all. But a Titus 2 woman I was not.
And then it happened. Over the next 15 years, my husband was unfaithful to me on three separate occasions. Even though I didn’t fully understand why at the time, by faith I stayed with him—and that’s when God really began working a miracle in our marriage.
We went through Christian counseling together and began to heal. I started studying God’s word and caught a vision of the kind of godly wife I could be for my husband. Yes, he had wronged me, but I was not without blame. I knew I had to change my attitude toward my man before things could improve. 1 Peter 3:1 gave me much determination and strength to persevere during that painful time:
“Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives.”
Just when our relationship seemed to have turned a corner, my husband was once again caught in an inappropriate relationship. Though it was not a physical affair, it was still wrong. And it hurt. Badly. I struggled so hard to understand how this could have happened, again. Our marriage had grown stronger. I had honored him. I had respected him. The really hard part was that he knew I had changed, and yet he still chose to make more poor choices.
I didn’t want to deal with the heartache anymore. Surely it would have been easier to just not care at all, right? I could let him go live his own life away from me. After all, I didn’t really need him. Our daughter was newly married and out of the house, and I knew I could take care of myself. Everything in me told me to leave, and no one would have blamed me if I had.
But God had other plans—another miracle for our marriage. My husband agreed to meet with my pastor, whom he had known for years and had a good relationship with. It turns out a big piece of the puzzle that had been missing was having a godly man get in his face and challenge him with biblical truths.
My hubby and I have been empty nesters for about twelve years now. I can’t say that I’m 100% past the hurt I’ve experienced. I still struggle with trusting my husband, but I have learned to respond very differently to that feeling than I used to. Now I look to the Word for comfort and strength when I need it the most. By faith, I made my marriage about more than whatever moment we were in. As my now-grown daughter, who is wise beyond her years, puts it: “You made Dad’s soul more important than the expectations you had of marriage.” Maybe so, but the truth is, I really can’t take credit for any of what has happened. I can only marvel at the kindness of God that has held us together for all these years in spite of the odds.
Little by little, He has chipped away at my husband’s heart. We don’t fight about finances anymore, and he was the one who encouraged me to stop working so that I could help care for my aging father. In fact, my husband was so committed to this task that he was willing to move out of our cozy house and into my father’s basement.
And then there’s the care and affection that has blossomed inside my husband’s heart. He shows me that he loves me more than he ever has, and I am so encouraged by how he tells me when he’s sorry and sends me random texts to tell me how much he cares for me. And you ought to see how much he adores his grandkids! The look on his face when he watches their Facebook videos is nothing like I have ever seen before from him.
Though God has answered many prayers about my husband and has worked countless miracles over the years, He has not yet chosen to do what I most desire: open my love’s eyes to the truth of the gospel and draw him to a saving faith. But there are clear signs that He is at work. My husband works on Sundays, but he very willingly listens to sermons from both my pastor and our son-in-law every night before bed. And I don’t feel uncomfortable sharing about the Lord with him anymore because he so willingly receives what I say.
Of course, in the midst of all of this, the Lord continues the oh-so-painful work of conforming me more to the image of His Son. There is still much that I have to learn about honoring and respecting my husband, but I press on with joy, knowing the holy task that lies before me: I have the privilege of reflecting the Father’s love for me—imperfect as I am—to my beloved, imperfect as he may be.
If you had all of this figured out a long time ago, praise God! May He use you as a vessel to point others toward your same Christ-centered path in marriage.
But if your current reality sounds a lot more like what I’ve been through, take heart. I can’t guarantee that all of your problems will disappear. Or that your husband will change overnight…or that he’ll change at all. But I can offer you hope and a reminder that God is faithful and powerful and that no one is beyond the reach of His grace.
P.S. Last night I asked my husband to share with me again how he felt about the night I asked him to marry me. He said he was shocked at first because “that’s not how it’s supposed to go.” When I reminded him that I had trapped him, his response was, “You did me a favor.” Of course, I teared up. Perhaps soon I can finally say with confidence that in his wife, my husband has “found a good thing” (Proverbs 18:22).
The presents are opened. The cookies are eaten. The company is gone. All the build-up and excitement for Christmas has disappeared like yesterday’s snow. While the rest of humanity seems merry and bright, reality comes crashing down on you.
The marriage is still broken.
The child is still a prodigal.
The bill is still unpaid.
The ________ is still ___________.
The distress, darkness, and despair threaten to suffocate you. While others might tell you or you might tell yourself, “It’s the holidays! What do you have to be depressed about?” Depression can still show up as the Grinch and steal our hope and joy.
I get it. I understand the distress, the darkness, and the despair.
Much more importantly, so does God.
Oh, my friend, look with me at the hope-filled passage of Isaiah 9:1-7! There are such treasures found in its depths. Lock arms with me as we step into the light of His glory and grace.
Let's start with Isaiah 9:2:
The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light:
they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death,
upon them hath the light shined.
Did you catch that?
- walked in darkness.
- dwell in the land of the shadow of death.
Darkness. Death. Despair.
BUT because of Christmas,
- they have seen a great light!
- upon them hath the light shined!
Look what this light will do. Christmas day and every day, it will give you:
1. Joy! (Isaiah 9:3)
You have enlarged the nation and increased their joy;
they rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest,
as warriors rejoice when dividing the plunder.
Just like the light of God increased their joy, the light of God will increase your joy!
2. Peace! (Isaiah 9:4)
He will break the yoke of slavery
He will lift the heavy burden from their shoulders
He will break the oppressor’s rod !
The light of God set His people free. By providing freedom, He allowed them to experience peace like never before. Just as He did then, the light of God can break the yoke of whatever enslaves you and give you peace like never before!
3. Love! (Isaiah 9:6)
A child will be born to us!
A son will be given to us!
Not just any child, my friend, but the Son of God, Jesus! That is a gift of love that can’t be taken or sold or fade away.
How kind of God, but what does that have to do with:
The marriage that is still broken.
The child who is still a prodigal.
The bill that is still unpaid.
The ________ that is still ___________.
Whether it’s Christmas Day or any day of the year, this Child is the gift that keeps on giving. He is the:
Wonderful Counselor (Isaiah 9:6)
- His counsel boggles the mind because it’s beyond our understanding.
- It is life-giving, freeing, and joyful.
- When we don’t know what to do about our marriage, our parenting, our bills, He does!
Mighty God (Isaiah 9:6)
- His strength and His power are unsurpassed.
- He can do anything because He has the strength to follow through with His purpose.
- He has maximum ability to save a marriage, a child, and unpaid bills. Just ask and see what He can do!
Everlasting Father (Isaiah 9:6)
- His Fatherhood has no end.
- He is not limited by aging or dying.
- He is the Protector and Provider of our marriages, our parenting, our finances, etc. He cares more than we realize.
Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6)
- A deep abiding peace that cannot be taken away.
- Spiritual harmony between God and us: in any marriage dispute, any parenting issue, and any life problem.
- This is not a promise of an easy life, just His unsurpassed peace to get through life.
Just because the gifts are open, the cookies are eaten, and the company is gone doesn't mean Christmas has to be over! Jesus! Jesus is the gift that keeps giving.
He is the light of the world!
He is joy like a fountain!
He is peace like a river!
He is love like an ocean!
He is the Wonderful Counselor!
He is the Mighty God!
He is the Everlasting Father!
He is the Prince of Peace!
He is the gift that keeps on giving!
“Glory to God in highest heaven,
and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.” Luke 2:14
Merry Christmas to us every day!

It’s that time of year when we turn our attention to the coming New Year and all the hopes and dreams that we have for it. Will this finally be the year that you lose those extra pounds? Will it be your year to run that first 5K? Will you finally kick your sugar habit? Will you eat more healthily?
According to most polls, diet and fitness goals occupy the top spots of every New Year’s Resolutions list. They certainly have mine in the past. In fact, I’ve not only been there and done that, I have also taught Bible studies on each one. No joke! My January Bible study classes have always been full of people eager to start the journey with me.
While I recommend all of these goals and can attest to the many advantages that each one brings to your life, I find a problem with each one – the joy of achieving them is fleeting. They do not produce the lasting satisfaction that can only come from the Lord. That is why I turned all my goals into Bible studies. I knew I could not do any of it – run a single mile nor live a single day without sugar – without help from the Lord. Each goal became a spiritual journey for me and I have grown significantly in my faith with the achievement of each one.
When 2017 rolled around I decided to head in a different direction with my New Year’s goals. First, I decided to only set one goal. Just one. Second, I decided it was time to do something that I have never done before – read through the Bible. Audra had recently shared her excitement with me about her chronological Bible which contains background commentaries to help the reader better understand the text before each day’s passage. I liked the sound of that because I need all the help I can get when it comes to understanding the Bible! So, I decided to go for it.
Although it's divided into 365 days, I gave myself permission at the very beginning to take it slowly. I call it my "Read Through the Bible in Three Years Plan". No pressure to speed through it. No condemnation whenever I skip a day or two or seven. No legalism. Just pure enjoyment.
Here are a few things that I have learned:
1. God meets me on every page. He met me in Genesis, in Exodus, in Leviticus, in Numbers (Yes, even in Numbers!) and so forth. On the very day I need it, His Word has been that steady guide to my wayward path. I see Him more vividly, discern His voice more clearly, and feel His presence more tangibly. Whatever I am lacking, He provides in black and white on that very page. It never fails.
2. I’m discovering power-packed verses that I have never heard before. Consider this nugget tucked inside Deuteronomy 4:7: "What other nation is so great as to have their gods near them the way the LORD our God is near us whenever we pray to him?" What a WORD!! He is NEAR US when we pray! I cannot think of a bigger confidence booster than that! Why am I not praying every waking hour then?
3. I make so many connections! The Bible is one big, seamless story. Once you start reading it in the correct order instead of cherry-picking passages, then the people, places, and events are more understandable. Context becomes key. And, you see how God uses symbolic words and numbers repetitively throughout to emphasize a certain meaning or to weave themes together. Take the number 40 for instance. Forty represents a time of testing, trial or probation. Whenever I see the number 40 pop up, I immediately think "testing!" The pings start going off in my brain and I am understanding the text in a whole new way. I lean in, looking more intently at the verses to seek the purpose of the test and what the outcome was.
For example, when Moses was atop Mount Sinai for 40 days, the Israelites got impatient and crafted, worshipped and reveled around a golden calf. Needless to say, they failed the test miserably. Another test came when Moses sent spies into the Promised Land for a 40-day tour. Upon their return, the Israelites became full of fear when they heard the distressing report. The news of the giants and walls that lay ahead made their hearts “melt in fear.” Their imaginations got carried away. They became angry and did not trust in the Lord. Instead of anticipating all that the Lord was about to do – take down giants and tear down walls – they instantaneously gave way to fear. They failed that test miserably, too.
But, then, there’s Jesus. A man who passed the test. Led by the Spirit into the wilderness for 40 days. He was stretched, tried and tempted beyond human imagination and yet stood victorious on day 41. Glory!
These accounts of testing cause me to pause and ask myself, “Would I pass this test?” To be honest, I don’t think I would get a passing grade in most cases. When the Lord seems to tarry like he did at Sinai, I tend to grow hasty and want visible reassurance. So, I dance around idols with names like “control” and “comfort” that I can manipulate and fashion with my own hands. I falsely believe that they will console and guide me. They cannot.
Or, when the journey ahead seems daunting or I venture into new territory (ahem – writing a blog), I get scared. It’s the melting-with-fear, not-believing-God kind of scared. I take my eyes off the cluster of grapes and focus instead on the mythical giants. I quickly forget that this tiny grasshopper with her tiny faith has a giant God.
4. I find myself craving more. It took a while to find my rhythm so my reading was very sporadic at first. Now I find myself excited to find out what happens next. It has become my daily bread and I can't get enough. My appetite keeps growing.
5. I see myself in many of the people. I find myself battling many of the same weaknesses as Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Moses and many others. But because of Christ in me, I possess many of their strengths as well. It is only by studying God’s faithful, the way they did it, the lessons they learned, and the tests they failed that I, too, know how to live victoriously through Christ.
I could go on and on presenting my case on why picking up your Bible on January 1st and making a commitment to read it all the way through – no matter how long it takes you – is the best New Year’s Resolution that you can make. But, I’ll end here with the wise words that one of my greatest mentors recently said.
While dining with Kay Arthur this past fall when she came to our church for a speaking event, our Women’s Ministry director concluded the meal with one simple question. She asked Kay: “What do you see is the greatest danger in the world today?”
My mind immediately started to think of world events. Is she going to say ISIS? Radical Islam? Terrorism? The moral decline of America? The great rift in American society? All of those things flashed through my mind and are understandably great concerns of our day. That’s why, when she finally spoke, Kay’s answer both shocked me, and, most importantly, got my attention. She said:
“Yes, I see a very great and real danger. The greatest danger in the world today is that Christian women do not know the Old Testament. The Old Testament is where you get to know Who God is. And, tragically, our women do not know Him because they do not read the Old Testament anymore.”
Ouch. Guilty as charged.
I knew in her answer that the baton had been passed to the fifteen of us sitting around that table. It is now our job to get our Christian women back into the Word. Without the knowledge of Who God is, all the worries of this world will shackle us and crush our faith. He is triumphant over all and we see that time and time again in the Old Testament! And, even worse, if we don't know Him, neither will our children. So, that’s why I’m challenging you – yes, you dear sister – today to join me on a journey where we get to know Who God is on every single page of those 39 books. Will you join me?

Remember – the theme with this New Year’s Resolution is grace. Give yourself grace to read through the Bible slowly. It's not “365 days or bust” but more like “1,000 days and succeed.” Get to know Who God is. And, once you do, it will be by far the most satisfying and fulfilling thing you have ever done.

First, I am a child of God. And, like a child, I am always learning and growing. The more I know Him, the more I love Him. Second, I am a wife to a good man. Missions is his thing while teaching women to love God’s Word is mine. Third, I am a mama to three plus a sweet cockapoo who thinks he’s #4. My children are my ongoing sanctification. Fourth, I am a passionate advocate of all things healthy & natural, an even 50/50 split of introvert/extrovert, and a dreamer/designer. Old friends call me Becky, newer ones call me Rebecca, and the most intimate ones call me Beck. You can just call me friend.
And just like that, Christmas day has come and gone. All the excitement and anticipation that led up to December 25th passed in the blink of an eye. Another 364 days until it comes again. This sounds like such a depressing post so far...oh but keep reading!
As a kid, I had so much excitement for Christmas day! I remember many times when my brother and I would snoop around for our gifts, and even one time we unwrapped some of them to grab a peek and then wrapped them back! Needless to say, Mom was NOT happy when we got caught! From then on, she had a coding system so we wouldn’t know who’s gifts were who’s. Somewhere along the way though, it seems as adults we have lost the anticipation that we once had as a child. Anticipation is something we all experience; whether it be a relationship, new job, new city, child, etc., we anticipate things, big and small, that seem to be very temporary.
Did you know that because of Christmas, we have great anticipation that is lasting? Because Jesus came as a baby, because He lived a sinless life, died a sinner's death and then conquered the grave, we have hope and celebration that He is seated on the throne at the right hand of the Father (Matthew 26:64)! Have we lost the excitement that Jesus is Lord? Have we lost the anticipation that He will be returning for His children one day?
The story of our eternity is just beginning with the birth of Jesus! BUT... we see in Luke chapter 2 and we learn from Simeon that of all the things God could ask us to do as we anticipate His return, He asks us to WAIT! Oh boy, that’s not exactly my favorite thing to do - matter of fact, I really don’t like it!
Luke 2:25-35 "At that time there was a man in Jerusalem named Simeon. He was righteous and devout and was eagerly waiting for the Messiah to come and rescue Israel. The Holy Spirit was upon him and had revealed to him that he would not die until he had seen the Lord’s Messiah. That day the Spirit led him to the Temple. So when Mary and Joseph came to present the baby Jesus to the Lord as the law required, Simeon was there. He took the child in his arms and praised God, saying,
“Sovereign Lord, now let your servant die in peace, as you have promised.
I have seen your salvation, which you have prepared for all people.
He is a light to reveal God to the nations, and he is the glory of your people Israel!”
Jesus’ parents were amazed at what was being said about him. Then Simeon blessed them, and he said to Mary, the baby’s mother, “This child is destined to cause many in Israel to fall, and many others to rise. He has been sent as a sign from God, but many will oppose him. As a result, the deepest thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your very soul.”
The Holy Spirit told Simeon that he would not die before seeing the Messiah. So Simeon traveled to the temple daily, patiently awaiting the arrival of the King. Can you imagine his obedience and trust that God would do what He said He would do? What is it that you need to be trusting and waiting on God for?"
As Simeon waited and listened to God, so must we. We learn from David in Psalms that God asks us to wait in three ways:
1. Quietly: Psalm 62:5 “Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him.”
Waiting is hard enough, but quietly waiting? That means no grumbling or complaining. That means that God is powerful and His plan is perfect!
2. Patiently: Psalm 37:7 “Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him”
A fretful, discontented spirit is open to many temptations. When we are waiting on God to lead us or guide us in a certain area, we have to understand that His timing is not our timing. We must be still and know that he is God (Psalm 46:10)!
3. Expectantly: Psalm 130:5 “That is why I wait expectantly, trusting God to help, for he has promised.”
When we pray, we should pray expecting God to move in a mighty way! He wants His children to be confident in His perfect will when we bring our petitions before Him! Praying scripture and speaking back those promises that He gave us in His Word is a powerful thing!
NOW...We must not get the “waiting” confused with laziness! We must enjoy the journey that the Lord has us on. As we wait and anticipate what the Lord has for us and His return, we must serve Him and be faithful to our calling as believers.
"Waiting on God is never a waste of time.
In fact, it's some of the best time you are
ever going to invest in your life.”
- Rick Warren
Because of Christmas, we have great anticipation that Christ is going to return for His children. What a beautiful promise and expression of love for all that believe on Jesus as their Savior!
I want to leave you with an old hymn written in 1744, which Meredith Andrews (the artist), added a bridge to. Listen to the song, but really focus on these lyrics:
You draw the hearts of shepherds
You draw the hearts of kings
Even as a baby, You were changing everything
You called me to Your Kingdom
Before Your lips could speak
And even as a baby, You were reaching out for me
And now we are awaiting
The day of Your return
When every eye will see You
As heaven comes to earth
Until the sky is opened
Until the trumpet sounds
The bride is getting ready
The church is singing out
Laura is a pastor's wife, mom to two crazy fun kids, part-time marketing director, loves hanging out in her community and building relationships...oh and loves to laugh!
Let me begin by saying, Merry Christmas from Audra, Laura, Rebecca and Tammy at ByFaithShe!
My prayer for you today and throughout this Christmas holiday is that you're taking a break to spend time with your Savior Jesus. As we celebrate His birthday, I want to take another look at a few of our most recent Christmas posts. Maybe you missed one or maybe there are a couple that spoke to your heart and helped you focus your eyes on Him. No matter how you choose, take some time to BE STILL and plug in to Jesus today.
