Today my praise is about Evangelism; how God opened up opportunities for me to not only be an encouraging woman to other women but encouraging men in the correct way.
It’s amazing how God uses you to encourage and speak faith into people He puts on your path to tell them that GOD DOES INDEED RESTORE MARRIAGES! He restored mine, and more than that, right now He is teaching me about how I am still His bride! 🙂 I am blessed with a double portion.
In this week alone God brought two specific people into my life to encourage, a neighbour who I gave the “How God Can & Will Restore Your Marriage” book to, whose marriage God has restored – her brother – He has come all the way from the UK, I live in Africa…. to hear that God has restored my marriage after separation and divorce.
I am printing out the 1st chapter of the How God will restore book for men for him today as he doesn’t have access to email. I gave him my EH copy of the Wise Man book to read in the meantime until he goes back to the UK (while I’m trusting God to work on my EH heart) and I showed him all the ministry links.
His sister has told me that one night he was up praying and had just turned to a page in the Wise Man book and something jumped out at him… answers to questions he sought. Now, how awesome is OUR GOD 🙂 He has told me that as soon as he returns back to the UK he will be going online to purchase the books from this ministry. Note that it is not our place as women to minister to a man that is not family, but this ministry has amazing resources that ministers to hurting men.
Another lady I was able to encourage due to being a “Stander”, I was a stander too once – then God led me to this ministry because I had so many questions. I knew from how she spoke about “standing” for her marriage that I needed to encourage her and tell her about the pitfalls of standing. I was a bit scared and fearful not knowing how to tell her about the pitfalls of being a “Stander” or even knowing how to explain it but I knew I had to. God showed me something…
As a stander you say “I am standing for my marriage” and as I explained to her God led me to tell her 2 things:
1. When we stand we do it in our own strength (God is the only one to receive the glory), He and He alone will receive the Praise, Glory, and Honour for restoring your marriage.
2. “I am standing”. You say – “I am” when you speak to people. HE is the Great I AM. God is I AM. When I came to this ministry I started changing the way that I spoke, I stopped saying that I am standing for my marriage and started saying that God restores, renews, rebuilds, God will Restore my marriage and He did!! 🙂 Praise God! Hallelujah!
I encouraged her to start doing the courses and Praise God she decided to start doing them.
Then I came across an older woman in a grocery store who when I was divorced we attended the same church, I said ‘Hi do you remember me I used to attend your church?’ She asked me why I stopped attending church, I then explained to her that I am now attending church with my EH as God restored my marriage. She then immediately started telling me about her son who was having his own marriage troubles… and guess what? I again could encourage her with my testimony and wrote down the ministry info to give to her son.
So I want to encourage all you ladies that God wants to use us wherever we go, there are soooo many hurting women out there that need to know what we know, we just have to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit and what God wants us to do & say.
For all of you that are going through trials in your marriage, know this, your trial is for a season God ALWAYS uses the trials and tribulations we experience for a greater purpose.
You are an Encouraging Women. We are all Encouraging women! 🙂
Matthew 5:13 KJV
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his. savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good. for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
We are the salt of the earth, we need to stay close to our HH as His brides so that we can stay salty in order to encourage all the hurting people God puts along our daily walk with Him.

Luke 6:38 “Give [Praise], and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”
Proverbs 11:24–25 “There is one who scatters [Praise], and yet increases all the more, and there is one who withholds [Praise] that is justly due [Him], and yet it results only in want. The generous man will be prosperous, and he who waters will himself be watered.”
