I am on vacation this week, so I'll be featuring a mixture of old favorites and new writing here on Jesus & My Orange Juice. I'll still be on Social Media and responding to comments though so feel free to leave a comment.
One thing I ask of the Lord…
“Honey, I need a pair of underwear.” It was a basic need from the lips of a man already packed for his week-long trip. But I spent the prior day diligent in the laundry room. I put away every washed pair. How could my day’s work not be enough?
Like a blanket, old feelings welled up within and suffocated me.
You’ll never make him happy.
You’re a failure as a wife.
Your best isn’t enough.
I immediately ratted my husband out to God. He could soooo do something about this…and I was sure He was on my side.
Lord, make him more appreciative.
Lord, make him more supportive.
Lord, change him.
My laundry had followed me away from the dryer. I had a laundry list of things I wanted God to do in him. He whispered His answer in my ear. One thing I ask of the Lord.
What if we only asked one thing of God?
One thing for our marriage.
One thing for our children.
What would our one thing be?
