Mom To Mom: Mari Jo

Hello Sweet Mom!

As I sit down to write about our study on loving our husbands, one thought on marriage prevails on my heart: when we say, “Yes” to Jesus, we enter into an eternal marriage covenant with Him. He loves so deeply and unconditionally, never stopping to lavish His love on us no matter how ugly, unfaithful, and unloving we are. He never says, “I’m done with you.”

Jesus never ends our relationship, but rather always believes for the best, hopes for good, good things, and patiently endures all things for our sake! He sees a better end and wants everyone to know and experience His love. Once we come to know this love, nothing is impossible! We hold this power of love in our hands—to love the ugly and the unloveable like He does.

My friend, I don’t know what your marriage looks like. What I do know from personal experience is that loving well takes a lot of hard work! Putting time aside to pray, hear, and share our deepest desires takes effort.

How beautiful that in all of this grueling, selfless work, Jesus shows us the way. He shows us how to serve, forgive, and minister from His heart to others. His love makes it possible for us to love our husbands well.

I’m praying for your marriage today, sweet one. Allow yourself to sit and receive the love of Jesus today. Let Him forgive, minister, and serve you as you wait to be filled. May He give you strength to dig deep into the power of His Spirit to continue on.

With Love,
Mari Jo Mast and the Help Club for Moms Team

Mari Jo, her husband Kim and family left everything that was familiar to them 13 years ago to move to beautiful Colorado.They live on a mini-farm which includes Snickers (a small Yorkie-Poo), arooster named Cracker Jack, and 23 chickens who supply them with fresh eggs every day! It is their desire to allow all 7 of their children to live outside of the box, to pursue Jesus and follow their God-given desires for His greater purpose. Two are happily married to spouses who are greatly loved. They have a sweet little Grandson and a little Granddaughter will be added this summer!

Mari Jo had an encounter with the living God in 2000, and was freed from the bondage of legalism. She is passionate about Jesus and his love, and desires for everyone to know He is alive!
