Dear readers (lets out a long sigh),
I wonder if some of you have partners or spouses who are not Christian. I wonder if you are going through the same predicament as I. It is very testing to lead someone to Christ especially if you are emotionally invested in the relationship. Some days, I feel like all is lost, some times, I feel like leaving and other days, I block it out because it grieves my heart.
I have waited 2 years but there doesn’t seem to be any sign of him turning to Christ. I know that God works in mysterious ways and I know that salvation is in God’s own timing. I know this yet I still grow impatient and frustrated that I am somehow alone in this. It feels like I am fighting a losing battle.
Deep inside, I know that I have been drifting away from God. I can barely feel His comfort though I know He is always there. This blog is a sign of my returning to Him. I do not enjoy being backslidden; having one foot in the world and the other in Christ. I never imagined choosing a partner who wasn’t Christian and introducing him to my family. I really must love this person if he was able to break me out of my ideals.
I must make a point that I am not criticising him. Having the knowledge of God and His salvation is an amazing grace. I just wish I could share the joy of worshipping God with him and knowing that our future is safe in His hands. I wish he could know the amazing power of prayer and abundance of God’s goodness. My partner has had a tough history coming from a broken home and having nothing. He has a void in his heart that I could only hope to fill…but I know that only God can make his heart whole again.
I have to trust in God’s plans and know that I am not the only one who wants him to turn to Christ. Of course, his heavenly Father wants his child to turn to Him too! I have found a useful post for Christians with partners struggling to accept the faith which I shall link here. I wish you all a Blessed Sunday and harmony within your relationships. Remember to love, support, and respect your partners.
