• “How very narrow is the gate that leads to a life in God! (Mt 7:14) How little one must be to pass through it, it being nothing else but death to self! But when we have passed through it, what enlargement do we find! David said, ‘He brought me forth also in a large place’ (Ps. 18:19). And it was through humiliation and abasement that he was brought there.” – from Madame Guyon’s autobiography Ch. 22

Away From Home by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 12/06/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Many women have husbands who are away from home.

“My husband leaves for work when it’s dark and comes home when it’s dark. The kids never even get to see him.”

NancyThey may be physically out of the house or just emotionally disconnected.

“My husband comes home and stays on the couch all evening. It’s like having another piece of furniture!”

Nancy: You may feel like the woman in Proverbs 7 who says, “My husband is not at home; he’s gone on a long journey.”

This woman is in the process of initiating an affair with a young man in her area. She’s responding to her husband’s absence by looking for counterfeit love.

But true, godly love stays faithful, even when a husband is “away.” Even if it feels like you’re often left alone, you glorify God by staying faithful to your marriage. And then be sure to take the matter to the Lord. He truly can direct and change your husband’s heart.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
