A Verse I Need – Even Though It Stings — 16 Comments

  1. Proverbs 21:9 (AMPC):
    It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop [on the flat oriental roof, exposed to all kinds of weather] than in a house shared with a nagging, quarrelsome, and faultfinding woman.

  2. This so amazing and true. Being married to an unbeliever, my husband and I used to exchange not such comforting words..
    More than a year ago I had an aha moment and starred praying for tge Lord to quiet my tongue. He would still find something to argue about and I knew it was Satan. I would walk away.
    Coming forward, we never have angry words and my husband enjoys our times together. Satan has only tried to visit a few times but left immediately when I showed him the door.
    It was a miracle from the Lord.

  3. I would imagine the scorching desert heat on those “housetop corners” was something to contend with. I hope the poor guy at least kept his mini-fridge stocked.

  4. Hello sister, what a great verse. I think of this verse often since the passing of my husband. The wasted moments i spent complaining over the years about things that i could have simply let slide. Things that today i see didnt matter. The moments i could have been encouraging to my husband jnstead. How i wish i could gather all those moments together and rwlive them. Sadly, thats not possible. Overall God blessed us qith a wonderful marriage and i know the past is just that, the past. I can however place a bookmark here to remind myself and learn from the past. Perhaps God will bless me once more with a good Godly man and then this lesson can be put to the test. Yours in Christ Laura
