I WONT STOP PRAYING FOR MY HUSBAND
This past Sunday I shared a testimony of God’s faithfulness on my insta stories and got an overwhelming response and decided to write a blog post about it. After having three kids, I must admit my memory has completely been laid to rest and currently asking God for a memory resurrection because it’s bad. Anyho, back to this testimony chile! I had been wanting to get Mayson (my 1yr old) dedicated at the church for months now but every time I go to start planning it, something comes up. Back in September, I remember opening my church’s app and researched the next baby dedication and December was the next date before the year was up; I signed up because I didn’t want to wait any longer. Months have gone by and I completely forgot but then it didn’t completely slip my mind because I remembered it being in December but not when in December. To make the story short, I serve in the music ministry at The Church of Chapel Hill in Douglasville, GA and I woke up Sunday morning early enough to get my kids and I ready and glanced over the music production schedule and realized baby dedication was actually scheduled for Dec 2nd OMG!!! I mean there’s no way I’ll have time to get the families I do have here in GA to attend because of such short notice.
So I quickly tapped my husband on his shoulders to tell him about the dedication and he just flat out said he wasn’t going ( I secretly wanted to ring his neck) I told him it would only take about an hour and he still refused. Now in case you didn’t know, my husband and church don’t mix so asking him to come to church is like a punishment. I picked up my face and got myself together, looked back at him and said ok cool; love you and see you when I get back. I prayed silently the entire time I was driving to church asking God to do something and to no shame me. I told God to spare me from the embarrassment and the judgements from the congregation. I mean I just knew there was no way I wanted to go up there with Mayson and not have my husband by my side especially knowing he’s home probably snoring. What made matters worse is I left my wedding ring right on the kitchen counter huh!!!!! Can you imagine? not to say that my church fam would be talking about me but here I am with all these kids and I’m getting ready to dedicate one of them and aint no daddy present? nah bruh wasn’t going down like that. I prayed up until the moment the baby dedication ceremony was about to begin. I was holding Mayson praying in my heart and all I felt is someone put their arms around my waist and I looked and there he was, my husband. I looked at him, smiled and focused on holding it together because God knows I was ready to drop to my knees and shout.
Once the ceremony was over, he handed my son to our daughter and he left. I quickly found me a quit place and immediately dropped to my knees just to take God for showing his love. Guys there is nothing God can’t do. My husband was pretty adamant about not attending the dedication but God, God did that! I cried and cried and cried some more because his promises never fails. I wiped my tears, ran to the restroom to gather myself up and headed back to the production room and one of the music directors looked at me and asked what was that all about. Now he knows that my husband isn’t saved yet but saw how shocked I was when I saw him and he was curious to know why I looked like I done saw a ghost. When I told him the story, he looked at me and said you’re already doing your part, it’s planting season; keep planting and allow God to do the rest and I believe him.
I said all of that to say this, To God be the glory. God is real! He sees and hears you. As followers of Christ, we want every single soul walking to be followers of christ especially our spouses, children, parents, etc. Don’t be afraid to ask him for what you want. Ask boldly and it shall be given unto you. Don’t be discouraged, stay firm! This is battle that’s beyond your understanding. My goal is to continue praying for my husband in hopes that God will appoint a time and place for some one on one time with my husband, just as he did with the woman by the well. I believe he can and he will.
Don’t be selfish, share the info
