  1. That was awesome! Don’t you think it could be the other way around, too? That a man, even married, could be seeking his wife’s love, more than God? Do you know of a Man’s blog?

    1. Rose,

      Yes, of course men can and do have idols, too. They can make idols of anything, just like women can: their wife, love, respect, money, power, sports, hobbies, luxury, popularity, control, looks, cars, nice things, children, etc…

      “The human heart is an idol factory.” John Calvin (lived in the 1500s)

      Brent Riggs has a great blog for believers – men and women, to help disciple and teach Christians.

      David Platt and John Piper have many resources and sermons that can help disciple men and women.

      The Normal Christian Life by Watchman Nee would be a fantastic book for men and women to read about growing in Christ.

  2. I am sure as a married woman that all women must focus first on their relationship with God, otherwise their relationship with an imperfect husband, or their life as a single person will leave them with a hole in their heart only God can fill. Sin, maybe, temporarily can fill that hole, but then it is only worse.

    1. As I look back over the years of my marriage, I focused on everything that irritated me about my husband, and everything that I thought was wrong about him. I didn’t look at myself and what I have been bringing to the marriage that is sinfuI.

      I feel incredibly bad about this. I feel terrible that I talked about him and what has been going on in our marriage with people that support divorce and with others that didn’t necessarily need to know. I was focused on his imperfections.

      Did I focus on God…no. I made my misery and frustration my idol, not God. I am retraining my thinking.

      This morning I read Ezakiel 36:26 ” I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.”

      This scripture is what I will pray and mediate on today.
