About two years into my marriage I began to feel the effects of being unequally yoked. Every time my husband came home or even called home from work, my day became instantly stressful and miserable. I began to pray that God would show me what to do in my situation. Of course, He was faithful to do so. I prayed that God would fill me with the Holy Spirit and fill my heart with His love for my husband. I needed to know exactly how to respond to this difficult man. Then I made a conscious decision to ask the Holy Spirit to fill me every time my husband called or came home. Being filled with the Holy Spirit meant I had to empty me of...me. As you can imagine, this decision made all the difference in my marriage! I was nowhere near perfect, but when I talked or saw my husband, the Holy Spirit allowed His love and joy to spill out of me. My words were suddenly filled with love and grace. My actions resembled those of Christ. Big changes began to happen in my marriage and although it took my husband several more years to surrender his life to Jesus, allowing myself to be filled daily with the Holy Spirit made all the difference for my husband, my family, and especially for my witness.
"And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit" (Acts 13:52).
