A Wife's Conversation With God


"Do you see the way he is, Lord?"

"Do you see the way you are?"

"Lord, are You saying there are things you want to change in me?"

"Many things. Are you ready to hear them?"

"Well, I guess so."

"Tell me when you're really ready."

"Why me, God? He's the one that needs to change."

"The point is not who needs to change. The point is who is willing to change."

"But God, this isn't fair."

"I never said life is fair, I said I am fair."

"But I ..."

"Someone has to be willing to start."


"How important is preserving your marriage?"

"Very important. The other options are unacceptable."

"I rest my case. Let's get on with changing you."

"Help me to have a good attitude about this, Lord."

"That's up to you."

"Do I have to pray for my husband even if he's not praying for me?"


"But that's not ... okay, okay, I remember. Life's not fair.
You're fair!"

(Silent nodding from heaven)

"I give up. Go ahead. Oh, this is going to be painful!
Cha ... change.... I can't believe I'm saying this."

(Deep breath)

"Change me, Lord."
