WHEN YOU’RE STRUGGLING AS A WIFE….

Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails. – 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins. – 1 Peter 4:8

Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy as unyielding as the grave.  It burns like a blazing fire, a mighty flame.  Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away. – Song of Solomon 4:6-7

WHEN YOU’RE STRUGGLING AS A MOM….

Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.  Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.  Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your children will be many in the land the Lord swore to give to your forefathers, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth. – Deuteronomy 11:18-21

Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it. – Proverbs 22:6

Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. – Ephesians 6:4

Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. – James 1:12

Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. – Ephesians 6:13

WHEN YOU’RE QUESTIONING THINGS….

And we know that in all things, God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. – Romans 8:28
