Standing on your knees...

I remember when I was an S4 (Self sufficient single sista) my pastor’s wife asked me what I would do if my future husband cheated on me. Before she could even finish her statement, I blurted out “I would leave!” Truth be told, I answered a bit smugly because I knew according to Matt 5 vs 32, I had every right to leave my husband if he cheated; so with a smile on my face I waited for her next response.

Ladies what she said next floored me... She said “Sister, what about your knees…Why can’t you get on your knees”

Knees? What's my knees have to do with this?

John 10 vs 10: The thief's purpose is to steal and kill and destroy.

When we become saved, we inherit the idea that our salvation is something we are going to have to keep fighting for; and rightly so. We fight temptation to remain saved, we fight with our flesh to remain pure, we fight all the tactics the enemy throws…we fight, we fight WE FIGHT!! But not all of us are aware that that our marriages are equal reason to put on our boxing gloves or pick up a samurai sword (whatever floats your boat sisters)but fight none the less.

Girl Fight

Now let me add this...although fighting begins on our knees, it might end with buying a nice dress or a pair of black pumps or even paying a visit to "Aunty Victoria" *Wink*. After praying God might show you that your weapon of choice is a cooking spoon, a quiet evening without cell phones or a pair of tickets.

Regardless of what it is,ladies...NEVER STOP FIGHTING!

Great post! It's very important that even in the midst of troubled times couples should work hard to reconcile and save their marriages.
