Choosing to Stand Together when the Children Go Astray

When you have children running away from the values that you believed in, it puts a huge strain on the marriage. Husbands and wives usually have different ways to approach things and situations. As such, times like these could really tear marriages apart.

It is really easy for husband and wives to start blaming one another - which is the easy way out because it will take the responsibility off of oneself.

Choosing to STAND UNITED

Fortunately for bible teacher Lorie Hartshorn and her husband, through the mercy of God, they went to counselling and had wise counsel. They realized that there was disunity between themselves. That was a way for the enemy to put a wedge in the family. The purposes of God in a family cannot come into being if mom and dad are not together on the same page.

Lorie and her husband was praying together everyday. This saved the marriage. The unity of them praying together played a profound role in bringing their children back to the Lord. Furthermore, it softened the relationship - there was less blaming and less criticism. It brought them closer together, as they learnt to pray together.

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
