Unequally Yoked?

Hi Ladies!
This is a very common questions that my friends and I get asked…”what do I do if my husband is a non-believer?” When we were at Relevant, we decided to get together and answer the question as a group. We hope that if you or anyone you know is struggling in this way that this will help.

  1. So good to hear a Godly response to this problem!! Praise God that there are still young women out there who put God first, who trust in HIS WORD to give us the answers we need. There is nothing new under the sun, so these problems have always been around. BUT GOD is faithful. You are so right when you say that how we approach this is to trust Him and live out a Godly example to our husbands. Great post ladies!! This is so unlike the foolish and selfish ‘advice’ given to us by the world today.

  2. Loved it. You all touched on all parts of this question. Thanks for always sharing your walks!

    I struggled so much this year with these situation. My husband accepted the Lord exactly a year ago but couldn´t keep on following God. As a more mature christian I tried to follow God´s lead but whenever I did that, my husband would withdraw from me. We came to a point where he didn´t even want to talk to me. I cried so much because I love my husband and have seen God´s hands in my family doing miracles thru the past years. Today it´s been three weeks that he decided to leave the house and start a relationship with another woman.Now where does that leave me with my prayer for my husband´s salvation? Should I keep praying for him? Should I expect that God bring him back to His feet ? I don´t know the answer to these and many other questions. My intention is not to discourage any other women. my marriage is not the same as the other readers and my husband is not their husbands either. I deeply appologize if my questions are making anyone to feel discomfort. 🙁

    • Dear Priscilla- I have been praying for you all day today…my heart is so heavy for you. I personally have not gone through this but please believe me- it does hit home for me. My first prayer for you is to keep believing in an all faithful God -that He does know this is happening, and you have not been abandoned by the Lord. Praise him for the miracles that have happened in your family and know that He can still bring on miracles to bring your husband back home. Yes, as hard as it is – please keep your husband in your prayers no matter what happens. Priscilla, stay true to God and be a godly woman no matter what happens- do not let go of that. “Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery” – Thankfully God is our judge and we can lay all of this at the foot of the cross. Your comment is FULL of grace my dear- you have not given any discomfort at all- this is a fallen world. Let me encourage you, if you don’t already check out http://www.womenlivingwell.org- Courtney specializes in biblical marriages. Much love and prayers for you, Janelle

      • Thank you Janelle, for your words and prayers! May the Lord bless you inmensly on your marriage! You are a great inspiration to me. 🙂

  4. Great advice. I loved you said to put the Lord first, so if our husbands are asking us to do something ungodly we should not submit to them, but always unto the Lord. Well said.
