On Sunday, I like to use articles that other wives have given me to read.  The following was not written by me.  It is a page out of a booklet called “God’s Little Devotional Book.”  The woman who gave this to me to read, has suffered through the trauma of having her husband have various sexual encounters.  She forgave him, only to be humiliated once again.  Even though his wishes were to stay in the home, her hurt was to deep to accept his conditions.  Here are a few words she wrote about the article after reading it.  Then I will proceed to write what the article said.

WIFE:  God used this article to deal with me concerning my husband.  I really didn’t want to do what God was telling me to do.  All last week I woke up by 2am.  The latest I slept was till 4am the whole week.  As I watched TV, God would have preachers on speaking of  HIS LOVE and  HIS COMPASSION and our hurts being used to help others in need.  When I read this devotion I WEPT FOR MY HUSBAND.  God showed me, he is the wounded goose on the ground.  The Holy Spirit and me are to cover and help him.   I know this is what God wants.  I am not doing it to reconcile with him, but so he can get reconciled with OUR FATHER.  I know it won’t be easy, but as long as I DEPEND on the HOLY SPIRIT to lead and help me, I can help him.  AND I WANT TO.  He’s my kids father, I love him and I want him to make it.  Keep me in prayer as I follow GODS’ WILL.

Article from  “God’s  Little Devotional Book”

Few sites get as much attention, and awe, as that of a large flock of Canadian geese flying their way in their V-formation to the north or south.  They speak of the changing seasons, and also of the   value of teamwork.

What many don’t know is that when a goose gets sick, or perhaps is wounded by a shot, it never falls from formation by itself.  Two other geese also fall out of formation with it and follow the ailing goose down to the ground.  One of them is very often the mate of the wounded bird, since geese mate for life and are extremely loyal to their mates.

Once on the ground, the healthy birds help protect the goose and care for it as much as possible, even to the point of throwing themselves between the weakened bird and possible predators (satan)They stay with the goose until it is either able to fly, or until it is dead.  Then, and only then, do they launch out on their own.  In most cases, they wait for another group (church)of geese to fly overhead and join them, adding to the safety and flying efficiency of  their numbers.

If only we wives would care for one another this well!!  Stick with your husband,…and more importantly, STICK BY HIM!!

Heb.10:25 “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”
