March 28, 2016
This book is life changing!! It has grown my faith & lets me know how God is soooo faithful to fulfill his promises over our lives. This book exposes Satan schemes to destroys families and then it shows how God is in the redeeming business to set people free and bring families together. If anybody is facing hopelessness in marriage, family or anything this book will bring light into your eyes and will expose the Lies that we all have believe at a certain time. Must BUY!!!!!!!!!!
This book was written from the heart of Deborah Ross. My heart was overwhelmed by Deborah's trust & belief in God for the healing of her marriage. Tears flowed as I was reading this book. Not only does it make you realize that God can heal a broken marriage, but HE can take care of any burden or problem that we may face. We have to let God speak to us through HIS WORD! We have to dig deep in HIS Scriptures & cling to HIS Promises...knowing HE will never leave us nor forsake us. We have to realize that the battle is NOT ours, but the Lord's!
I have known Deborah & Jay personally for years. I saw the pain on Deborah's face as she was going through this struggle...but she never quit praying & she never lost hope! I saw the love of a wife who trusted God! Now, I see the smile on her face as she tells others not to give up because there is hope in Jesus!! Every time I look at Jay, I see a miracle that only God could have performed in his life.
No matter what you are facing in life, NEVER GIVE UP!! Keep Trusting & Believing that God is working on your behalf! Cling to HIS WORD & HIS PROMISES.
This book will change your life. You will realize that NOTHING is Impossible with God! TRUST & BELIEVE!! There is Power in the Name of Jesus!
Deborah's testimony of how God healed her marriage as she stood in the gap for her husband's salvation is a very personal one to me. I have been standing in the gap for my prodigal husband to come home to Jesus and to me. I feel very encouraged that because he did it for Deborah, he will do it for me. One of my favorite quotes from the book is "God wants your family whole." Amen! The steps she outlines in the book are very helpful including prayer, having a personal relationship with Jesus, reading the Word, surrounding yourself with like minded believers and being obedient to the voice of God. Deborah teaches that we must choose to forgive in order for God to forgive us according to Mark 11:25-26.
Never, never, never give up on believing God for your miracle no matter what your circumstances may look like.
Several references in the Holy Bible pertain to "ears to hear" and the words "eyes to see." The scripture that best describes this story is Ezekiel 12:2. "Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house." This is Deborah's story.
Deborah Ross has written a valuable book of compassionate Christian advice for failing marriages. She experienced numerous hardships and challenges in her personal life and bravely revealed brutal truths that her empty marriage brought her to a near mental breakdown, severe stress and temptations that might have lured her away from her strong intimacy with God and consequently - divorce.
Ms Ross remained prayerfully strategic and strong in her battle to bring her husband to his knees before the Lord. She proved that standing and believing God's Word without doubt for her husband's salvation and "If God brings you to it, He'll see you through it" - my favorite true quotation - works. Her faith and relationship with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit was essential to bring about the changes and miracles she prayed for.
Deborah's heartbreaking story was at times very awkward to read because of personally relating too much of what she went through. This story is not about me - but I saw myself throughout the sad and emotional conflicts she experienced. Her story is very disturbing to my own emotions and has given me hope for such a grace of God to fall on my own prayers.
"Have you ever wondered if you married the wrong guy?" The first sentence of her story struck me as bold_.however a question that every wife might have wondered, I admit I have. Deborah then further questions _"Did you think once you became born-again, that your husband would quickly see the difference Christ has made in your life and repent, only to be let down by his indifference to the need for this great salvation?" How did Deborah know my own thoughts and questions? Her questions don't stop there and she is preparing the reader for victory. "If you have answered "yes" to any of these questions, this book was written with heartfelt wisdom, biblical knowledge, and experience just for you!"
She lays out eight action instructions to follow and beautiful scriptures throughout the book to meditate on God's word in applying her principles to our own situations. Deborah Ross is clearly an organized individual, extremely talented, self admitted type-A personality with a discerning and wise soul. If an unbeliever picks up this book, I pray that person will read Deborah's writing with an open mind and follow the journey to salvation. Undoubtedly, reading this book as a believer will enhance your personal relationship with the Lord and add wisdom to your soul. At the end of the book is a lovely prayer for marriage, as well as a prayer for salvation. Perhaps her advice isn't for everyone, or some parts of her story won't initially be understood, which in my estimation would depend on where you are in your journey with the Lord.
Overall, Deborah writes from the compassionate heart of a mature Christian, and it would be an honor to meet her personally. She knows from where she speaks.
Using Deborah's own words for a final thought and my compliance - she says, "It is my prayer that the Lord will use my testimony to give you hope in what may seem to be a hopeless situation."
This book is not another fluffy Bible study of "how to" but rather a lay-it-on-the-line transparent testimony and radical challenge for you to consider in being God's chosen woman for such a time as this (Esther 4:14)!
