Have you lost hope in your marriage? Be encouraged my dear sisters. My friend Angel Penn is hosting a 28 Days to Godly Marriage series, to encourage women in the journey through I do.
When Angel invited me to join the conversation, I felt a pressing on my heart to encourage women that may be in unequally yoked relationships.
If this is you, my sister; I’m here to tell you that, your marriage will challenge you to put your heart where your faith is! It won’t be easy, but it will be possible. Here is my story.
Do you feel stuck in a marriage that is unequally yoked? Then I’ve got news for you girlfriend. YOU can turn that around. Yes, that’s right YOU! Leading your husband to Christ without saying a word, is the catalyst for turning around an equally yoked marriage to a godly marriage!
Well, with God’s help, of course. Because God is the only one who can change a man’s heart.
When I met my husband eighteen years ago, our very first conversation went like this:
Me: What do you stand for?
Andre: What do you mean?
Me: What do you represent? Are you a Christian, what kind of values do you have, what’s important to you?
Andre: I’m not a Christian, but I’m spiritual.
Me: What’s that supposed to mean? I mean seriously, I’ve already done this before and the relationship did not end well. If you’re not a Christian, we can’t date. I don’t want to be unequally yoked. I’m not saying you’re going to be my husband, I’m just saying I don’t want to waste my time.
Andre: What does that mean? I’ve dated other Christian women and their Bible didn’t say that.
Me: Um, yes it did. They just didn’t follow it.
Long story short, Andre was just coming out of the Muslim faith. He explained to me that from what he saw and knew, it wasn’t the truth. However, he was searching for the truth.
It was that answer that peaked my interest because I knew that if his heart was searching for God, in time he would find God for himself.
Since we are married, you would be correct in assuming that I won him over. But the real question is how?

Thank you Angel for inviting me to be a part of this important marriage series.
