When I got engaged, I picked up the book*
The Power of a Praying Wife
Even as a starry eyed fiancee I had found myself inwardly complaining, “I wish he would be like this.” or “why doesn’t he do that more?”
The book was very convicting and challenging for me, because it exposed a lie I was believing:
“ my husband is a Christian therefore I am marrying a perfect person.”
When the Lord showed me that the source of my frustrations came from my own arrogant idea that my future husband should “have it all together,” my heart was heavy and humbled.
