I have been attending Praying Wife Forum (PWF) for three months now.
Since Day 1 at the the Beyond Suffering Event last July when Malu Ortiz shared her testimony, I told myself, ‘Oh no! What a mess I’ve been making to my marriage/husband for twenty-eight years… considering that I professed myself as a Christian for thirty years now. Sobrang hiya ko kay Lord at kay Holy Spirit.. [I was so ashamed to the Lord and the Holy Spirit].
It was only during that event that my spiritual eyes got opened. I realised that all this time, I wasn’t a real Christian who was truly walking with the Lord; He was not the Lord of my life.
I understood and God answered my prayers of long ago when I asked Him why I couldn’t bring my husband to Him! Nonetheless, I’m still thankful and joyful that I came to know PWF ….God used this group to enlighten us, equip us, not to be a “perfect “wife to our earthly husband …but to be a “Bride of Christ” that He calls us to be (Living for Him and being a better wife to earthly husband is an overflow).
I’m still a work-in-progress in fulfilling God’s plan for my life. I believe in His time, my husband will come to know Him and live a life that is full of Him alone… To God be all the Glory!”

Sis Nene Caday, praise God for your humility and openness to share what so many wives go thru. Praise God for His word that saves us from ourselves to redirect us to His best way. May the Lord continue to shine thru you as you seek to live out being the Bride of Christ obedient in all things including being the best wife you can be regardless of changing circumstances.
“For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 1:6 NASB
