Mark 10 Nine


Are you happily married and looking for tips on maintaining a God-honoring marriage? This weekly devotional will give you encouragement for your marriage.

Do you feel overlooked?

We are just a few weeks into the new year. I am the type of person who loves the start of a new year. I love a blank calendar, empty and ready to receive all the year holds. I love setting goals. Notice I did not use the word resolutions. I feel like the word goals gives me some wiggle room. Room to fail. Just kidding! I really do get excited about a new year.

Regardless of what happened in the previous year, I feel like a fresh start, new goals, and a new vision await me. I wake up on January 1 feeling like eight hours of sleep erased all that I didn’t accomplish in the prior year. Dream big, my friends! Dream big!

Do you have some goals you are looking to accomplish this year? My mom and I talked about this topic in our new Fight for Your Marriage Podcast episode. Do you have personal goals? What about goals for your marriage?

I think the thing that is so exciting about a new year is one word – HOPE. There is hope within the pages of a blank calendar. There is hope on the pages of my blank goal list. There is hope on the board in my office, where I keep goals for different areas of my life. Hope.

It is hard to have hope when you feel like the world is imploding around you. You can lose hope when you look at your circumstances and see mountains that don’t seem to be crumbling. Maybe you look at your marriage or family situation and feel overlooked by God.

It can be so easy to look around and think,

Why do they look so happily married? I want a good marriage. 

How did his answer to prayer come so quickly? I have been waiting much longer. 

How can my neighbor afford that nice car? I never get anything nice. 

Why can’t I have a friend like that? I’m a good person.

God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. We want each of you to show the same diligence to the very end, in order to make your hope sure. We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.  Hebrews 6:9-12

God is not unjust! Can we take a minute and just focus on those words?

When you feel overlooked – God is not unjust.

When you feel unloved – God is not unjust.

When you feel abandoned – God is not unjust. 

Just as I go to bed on December 31 and wake up eight hours later feeling like the world and my circumstances have changed, I pray that you will wake up each day with that renewed faith.

Right now, your Red Sea may not have dried up yet. Don’t give up. God is not unjust. Just as God divided the water for the Israelites, He can divide the waters of your circumstances. Will you trust Him? Will you trust His timing?

Moses answered the people. “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only be still.”  Exodus 14:13-14

God cares about you! Don’t forget who your God is. He is in control.

God Bless,
