Preparing for Persecution

on July 30, 2013

Interesting, but when I was in the process of getting my book published, the only thing I thought about was that I had to get it out and into the hands of my sisters in the Lord. I didn’t even have a thought about how Christian women would receive the message of the book itself. When it was released for purchase, and people began buying the book, I suddenly realized that some who read it would not be entirely pleased with its content. After all, God’s plan for marriage and the roles of a wife are not very widely accepted these days.

For the first time, I began to feel a sense of apprehension and nervousness. These feelings never entered my heart as I penned the words. Yet now I’m keenly aware that I most likely will receive some criticism, opposition and even outrage at some of the points in my book. That wives should take care of their homes, submit to their own husbands, and show honor even when its undeserved…these are not popular concepts. Yet we are not to please the world but to please our Father in Heaven. He created marriage and gave us the blueprints for how to do it right, and His plans are without flaw. They are not based on circumstance or only applicable for ideal situations. God’s Word is true and His promises are solid as stone.

So as I release this book (which can be purchased in the Bookstore here in paperback or Kindle versions), I am aware that I may be persecuted for sharing this message, but I am prepared to face it knowing that God is my refuge and my strength. I will stand upon His Word without fear knowing that He is for me, therefore who can be against me? I have been faithful to His Word and have shared the message He put on my heart. I’m ready to face attacks of the enemy and the world, because my almighty God is greater than the world. I will put my trust in Him. Amen? So bring it on…

  1. Stand strong, sister.
    Often what the Lord calls us to brings warfare. The bigger the call, the bigger the frontal attack.

    We have been ministering to marriages for over 15 years and it always brings warfare. Now we have just started a new part of our ministry which is online
    ( and
    and the enemy really hates what we are doing to keep married christians not only married but happy & in love.

    So keep running the race set before you. Fight the the good fight of faith.

  2. Hey! I just found your blog and wanted to say how much I appreciate you putting this topic out there unreservedly. I am not married, however, I think this topic is something that unmarried (but expecting to be one day) women need to also learn about. Thank you for standing strong in your faith and putting this word out for the world to see and learn from. Have a blessed day!

    • Thank you so much for the encouragement! Words of affirmation are so nourishing and I appreciate you taking the time to write. God has definitely put the burden on my heart to fight for marriage and God’s design for it and to encourage my sisters in the Lord. Thanks again and God bless!
