Lord, bless this military spouse whose battles are often invisible.
May she know you see her and her struggles, and that you walk in step with her.
Bless her as she waits through every uncertainty and moves through every change.
May she not grasp for quick answers but stay curious and ready to hear from you.
Bless her when she feels overwhelmed and under-qualified, anxious and nervous.
May she know real rest found in holding wide-eyed trust that you will not abandon her.
Bless her when fears stalk her and failings scare her.
May she place every one of them in your capable hands and see them transformed into abundant good.
Bless her for standing, even when that means standing alone.
May she be able to sit and receive your wild love and Hopeful presence in powerful ways.
Bless her for her courage to start over again and again and again.
May she find comfort in knowing you determine her locations, not the military assignments officer.
Bless her for keeping it real, especially when that means really falling apart.
May she know you’re the safest place to bring every question, frustration and concern.
Bless her with the knowledge she is more than enough for the job required today.
May she know who she is matters and what she does makes a real difference.
Bless her for not hiding her weaknesses from you and from safe friends.
May you give her bold, selfless community that surrounds her with the love of Jesus.
As the military lifestyle demands difficulty and discomfort, may you bless her with deep delight and profound grace.
May she have clarity and comfort in knowing Christ is capable of redeeming everything.
Bless her as she cares for babies who need tending, families who need loving, and hearts that need encouraging.
May her own heart be tended, loved, and encouraged, and may she know she is seen and held in the highest esteem.
Thank you, military spouse, for sharing in the sacrifice so we may share in the freedom. xo
