frenzyfrenzē|noun ( pl. -zies) [usu. in sing. ]a state or period of uncontrolled excitement or wild behavior : Doreen worked herself into a frenzy of rage.

I had a to present in New Braunfels this morning at 7:30 for some coaches who could use extra income (imagine that) but I quickly found out that that is not why I was meant to wake up at 6:00 AM on this COLD COLD COLD morning! I awoke very groggy, stumbled to the bathroom, put in my contacts, and smelled coffee that my dear sweet husband had set the timer for and IT.WAS.READY!! As I stood in our not-warm-enough kitchen I did the next very obvious thing that most do: I checked my facebook! That's when it hit me. A horrible dread came out of no where. I was on my face in my kitchen on the cold cold tile and tears were pouring down my face uncontrollably at a rate that I could not stop. I read the status of a dear sweet man that I knew from my church when I was in high school that read (I'm just giving you a paraphrase) "We are getting a divorce...tried to pray and work it out for the past four months." and i'm done for. They have a daughter who is just a few years younger than I was when I heard the news of my parents divorce. Not only that! This couple is my inspiration! They are an example I use in my own life to remind me that not all marriages fail! I don't know the circumstances for theirs but I know that prayer works and that God hates divorce. I got ready quickly, headed down the stairs to my freeeeeezing car, turned on my praise CD, and mourned and prayed and grieved for this family as I drove from the Onion Creek exit on 35 to San Marcos. That is when the frenzy began. I had my hand up in my car and I prayed for every single one of your marriages. I prayed for those of you who aren't married and might be married at some point. I prayed for their daughter.I realized that the reason I got up this morning and got to drive by myself was so that I could be reminded of how sacred my marriage is to Kyle! I could not WAIT to get home to that man and hold him and tell him how much I love him (and I prayed of him too!) If anyone needs prayer today send them my way! My heart is stirred like nothing before and I know that it was time for this spiritual awakening in me. I want you to know that your marriage matters to me! I am asking that you pray for my marriage and that you would pray with me that the Lord would intervene in the life of this sweet family.

Thank you! (and a coach signed up)


  1. WOW. It is soo sad how this world has demoralized the sacred, Godly, bond called marriage. I will pray for this man's marriage and for their daughter. That is sad thing to watch and go through (we both know that).

    It just amazes me how God stirs emotions and our spirits at His timimg.


  2. Thanks for sharing this, Jenny! You have inspired me to have a more active prayer life today and everyday. Marriage is such a sacred and blessed gift that God gives us and it is definitely worth it!

  3. Thank you for sharing this! You are so right and we all need to be prayer warriors. I will pray for your marriage!
