I have finally finished Linda Rooks book, Broken Heart on Hold. One thing I read the other day, has stuck with me. When our spouse wrongs us, we usually get angry in the process, right? So what if we have a shift in thought, and instead of getting angry, pray instead?
Here is a paraphrase from her book: “When your spouse wrongs you and your anger rises up against them, praying for them may be the last thing you feel like doing. But that is one of Satan’s deceptions. He uses feelings and anger to help justify you in relinquishing your spouse to the darkness of Satan’s snare. If your spouse is entangled in sin, you cannot rescue them. Your words will not convince them. But God can. And you can be the instrument to unleash God’s mighty power and squash Satan”s hold on the spouse you are united to in marriage.”
Sometimes when we are in pain in a relationship, Satan keeps our mind occupied with his thoughts and his ways. Let’s fight against him, ok? Let’s live by the powerful, living, breathing Word of God!
