“Nothing is happy until it fulfills the purpose for which it was created by God ... A man's main business is God; a woman's main business is the man.” — Pastor Jack Hyles

God's Power Can Save Your Marriage!!!
Most people who file for divorce attempt to claim that Jesus allows for divorce in situations of adultery; but that is not what Jesus taught. What about all the other sins that one's spouse may commit? Does that provide a grounds for divorce? No, not according to the Lord. Jesus taught in Matthew 18:22 to forgive, 70 times 7. Divorce is the sin of hate, unforgiveness and hypocrisy. So many people are woefully ignorant of the Scriptures, just as Jesus said:
Matthew 22:29, “Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.”
God's power can save your marriage, if you will trust God and not quit.

Marriage Bible Study
(They ate canned weeds to survive in The Great Depression!)
The Bible plainly teaches that a woman should focus on inner beauty. 1st Peter 3:4, “But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.” Most women are concerned about the size of their breasts, but God is concerned about the size of your heart. Your flesh will eventually rot, but your heart doesn't have to be corrupted and can go with you to Heaven if you are saved.
“What is that truth? The truth that the spiritual life of a nation, city, town, school, church, or home never rises any higher than the spiritual life of women. When women sag morally and spiritually, men sag morally and spiritually. When women slump morally and spiritually, men slip morally and spiritually. When women take the downward road men travel with them. When women are lame morally and spiritually, men limp morally and spiritually. The degeneracy of womanhood helps the decay of manhood.”

“I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left.”

Proverbs 31:30, “Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.”
“Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.” —Matthew 7:6
U.S. Government Now Views Citizens Naked at Airports (Can you imagine? Virtuous Christian women, who save themselves only for their husband, are now being unknowingly viewed completely naked by male security airport police. Drive, don't fly ladies! Can you imagine a group of Christian women, adorned in modest full-length dresses, being viewed completely naked, having your private areas viewed by make security officers? It's evil.)
Woman Goes Hysterical After Being Molested By TSA (Hitler would have loved this power!)
“Happiness is not a destination you arrive at,
1st Peter 3:5-6, “For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.”
If we are to better the future,
Hooray For Job's Wife!
What if Job's wife had abandoned him and left him in his dire condition? Give Job's wife some credit, she stayed. Can you imagine how Job would have felt is his wife filed for divorce and quit their marriage, going her merry selfish way? Would Job have still made it? Job didn't have it so bad, he still had a companion through his suffering. Job and his wife suffered together, the way a marriage is supposed to be; she didn't turn tail and quit as the wicked do (Jeremiah 3:20).
A Woman's heart should be so lost in God that a man needs to seek Him in order to find her.
Marriage is two people making a life for each other.
The Bible says that if you are as a young wife abandoned by her husband (or a husband forsaken by his wife), God wants you for Himself. God loves to receives the rejects and misfits of life, thankfully...
Isaiah 54:5-7, “For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called. For the LORD hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God. For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.”
Proverb 17:6, “...the glory
1st Samuel 15:23a, “For rebellion
You'll become what you decide to be around.
Remember ladies, your husband must always come first. I know a lot of mothers want to put their children first, but that's a sure recipe for disaster. One day your kids are going to grow up, but your husband will still be there, if you haven't drove him away or abandoned your own marriage. If you fail as a wife, you are a failure in life, period. God did NOT create a woman to be a mother. That is one of her duties, certainly, but the PRIMARY reason God created a woman was to be a HELP MEET to her husband (Genesis 2:18). Your first and foremost priority is TO YOUR MAN. This is Biblical. Your husband's needs must come first. Your husband must never be ignored or neglected for the sake of your children. If you disagree, then you are not a Biblical wife and may likely end up divorced someday.
What To Do When We Sin As Christians
1at Samuel 12:20, “but serve the LORD with all your heart.”
Trust upon the Lord, for He has promised in Hebrews 13:15 never to leave nor forsake us.
“In dealing with people who have inflicted hurt, would it not be wise to go to extra lengths to understand that “hurting people hurt people.”—Mrs. Beverly Hyles
“Someone has said, 'Don’t steal tomorrow out of God’s hands. Do not run impetuously ahead of God. Wait His time. The hour and the minute hand must point the exact moment for action.' Do you have an answer too long in coming? Wait on God; no one else sees the whole picture.—Mrs. Beverly Hyles, December 8th, 2014.

“In the last place, there are detours of disappointment. No one in life is free form this detour. We are disappointed in others. We are disappointed in the failure of our plans. We are disappointed in ourselves. There must be a constant battle against this foe, or we will find ourselves growing bitter and cynical. In the face of disappointment, we must smile, keep sweet, and trust God. My life is not all I would have it to be. I am oftentimes disappointed regarding circumstances and people, but in it all, I am keenly aware of God's love and grace. Even disappointment has a redeeming feature, for when I am disappointed in myself and in others, I lean more heavily upon God, for our God is One who never fails or disappoints His children. And now in full faith let us repeat together: 'And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to is purpose.'”
