#062: RESPECT (Podcast)


Being married to someone means knowing all the incredible things about them. But it also means knowing all their flaws: their impatience, their mistakes, their lack of self-control…the list goes on and on. So it’s no wonder that knowing our spouses’ imperfections makes showing them respect a challenge. But on today’s show, Vicki Rose will be sharing tips on giving respect from her book Every Reason to Leave. Talking from experience, she will discuss how respect in marriage has the power to transform.

    Jesus was negative in many of his comments actually saying it was better if judas was never born.

    Great podcast. My husband told me he didn’t love me anymore 2.5 years ago. He hasn’t done anything to work on it. He told me he knows he neglects me but can’t ‘flip a switch’. I used to be a terrible wife but about three years ago the Lord got ahold of me and truly transformed me. A few months later he told me he didn’t realize how bad I was until I changed and he never really loved me. We are still together but it has been a hard ugly lonely road. Is there anything you can recommend for me to do? I strive to be respectful and my husband says I am a great wife now but his feelings have not changed. I try to focus on my walk and change myself. I just was hoping you may have some recommended resources.

    If the Lord got a hold of you He can certainly get a hold of him! Once, when I was lamenting about the state of my husband, a friend said “Do you think God can resist the prayers of a woman on her knees for her husband?” Get on your knees girl!

  • The Lord changes and restores hearts. Praying for you and your husband.
