My Daily Devotion – My Quiet Time With God

Posted by Men of Redemption on December 8, 2017

TRUSTING GOD IN THE MIDST OF DOUBTSee the source image

Today’s Reading: Luke 5: 1-11 . . . .

“So it was, as the multitude pressed about Him to hear the word of God, that He stood by the Lake of Gennesaret, and saw two boats standing by the lake; but the fishermen had gone from them and were washing their nets. Then He got into one of the boats, which was Simon’s, and asked him to put out a little from the land. And He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.” And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!” For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish which they had taken; and so also were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid. From now on you will catch men.” So when they had brought their boats to land, they forsook all and followed Him.

Regaining Trust While in Recovery

Posted by Men of Redemption on December 8, 2017

Praying Together Develops the Foundation of Renewed Trust.  

I realize that at the beginning of all of our recovery efforts, praying together may not be the first thing on our wives’ mind because most of the time they’re not receiving any support or ministering to early on. And then on the other hand, I was kind of embarrassed and ashamed to begin that process, too much guilt. But I had to learn to fight through that by trusting God to help me not bask in my guilt, my shame, and asked Him to increase my faith, my desire to move forward in that despite how I was feeling emotionally. It was hard because I didn’t think Jackie would believe my words or that I was at a place where I could boldly do that. But again, I had to fight through that because it was a lie from the enemy and the pits of hell! With what little faith I had, I trusted God to move upon that measure and show my faithfulness in what I did have. God honored that, and increased my desire as I continued and consistently worked toward making time to pray with Jackie. Our prayer time was short at the beginning but as I became more comfortable and at peace with myself and her our prayer time increased gradually to the point where it is now. We pray every morning before I go to work, and at least three times a week in the evenings because of our work schedules. That effort has drawn us closer together and gave her the security and peace, along with all of my other recovery efforts, to allow the trust in our marriage to gradually return. I don’t focus on attempting to gain all of her trust but I’m thankful, grateful, for the progress I’ve made and currently still making to reach that ultimate goal. No matter where you are in your recovery you can begin to earn your wife’s trust by doing the simple foundational principles that establish stability in your marriage. And as long as you continue to trust God to make that happen, trust will eventually find its way back to your marriage.
