Monday’s Mission #115

Your mission this week is to think about a way that you and your husband might invest in your spiritual connection this fall. Perhaps you want to join a care group or spend time serving a local ministry. Maybe you want to attend a marriage retreat that is coming to your area or attend a class offered through a church. Maybe you want to read a book about growing in your Christian life. It’s important to spend time connecting your spirits as much as it is important to connect physically.


  1. I have started thinking about this one. My husband and I are not equally yoked spiritually. I am Christian and he is an atheist. So if any of you have any suggestions on how we can connect more spiritually, I would love to know. Thanks!

  2. Re “unequal yoke” marriages and sex. I watched my grandparents over many years, until my grandfather died after more than 40 years of marriage. He came to the Lord just before his death. I can truly say that Grandma loved him to Jesus, but it took her all those years. He was not an atheist, but unbelief is unbelief.

    I don’t know your husband, so I can only speak generally, and in general atheists tend to blame “religion” for many things they see wrong in our culture. This is particularly true of sex, and they often think of Christians as repressed and anti-sex. So my thought: use some of the many suggestions in the Christian Nymphos website to lovingly give him a taste of heaven. Prove to him that his prejudices are wrong, at least as far as you are concerned. Patiently love him to Jesus, but don’t necessarily expect him to turn to Christ right away. Praise God if he does.

    And never forget: God created sex as a holy means to teach us intimacy with Himself–and with each other (see Ephesians 5:33).

  3. I am with you! My husband and I are not equally yoked too. I do not think this is possible for us. I could be wrong, I just do not see how. He believed in God when we got married and then fell away two years later.

  4. Ashley Taylor, God opened my eyes to how this is possible! It is through prayer! I may not be able to sit down with my dh and pray or get involved in a church function with him, but I can pray this week and every week for my dh. I will include yours as well! God does not give up on our men! He will always be there waiting with open arms to bring them to him. It is hard to wait on His timing. We do not need to give up. I have been waiting for 10 years now, it is not easy, but I could not do it without God. He is what holds me together when I need to be equally yoked! May God bless you and your dh through your patience with Him!

  5. Don’t give up ladies. I’m not in that situation but I’ve seen God work in marriages that way. Always put God first in your life and trust him. Don’t give up. Just be prepared for a bumpy ride, sometimes God has to take people to the bottom and strip them of everything for that person to realize they need a savior. Its hard to watch but worth seeing them come to Christ in the end.

  6. Thank you intendedforpleasure!

  7.
