Praying for Your Husband
Then I started praying for God to change Isaiah's heart and make him want to clean up his clutter. I prayed hard. Amazing thing was God started changing my heart. I started realizing that the clutter was not the problem, my heart attitude was. I was embarrassed for people to see the clutter because of how they thought of me. I don't like clutter, but I realized that I loved my husband and it was part of him. He loved me, even my faults, and I need to love him like that. I also realized that I needed to give my pride in my house to God and not worry about what other people thought.
I was still a little bothered by the clutter because I don't like clutter, but not as bad. God had changed my heart. After my heart got right, guess what? Isaiah started not wanting the clutter and has been working hard to clean it out. He has spent hours on it, and our apartment looks so much better.
There have been many times where I was struggling with something so I started praying for God to work on Isaiah's heart, and of course He worked on mine. I changed my heart and gave it to God. I realized that I can't nag Isaiah into having a heart change about something.
I cannot say I never nag, or I'm perfect at not getting frustrated about things, but I can say that this has changed so many things. I need to remember to pray for him, not nag him. Only God can change him. When I try I just frustrate him.
