…or, Help in a Stressed Marriage…
As mentioned in a previous post, there are times that sin and/or disagreement puts stress on a marriage. As daughters of Eve, we women are tempted to “fix” things in ways that sound and look reasonable, but as Christians (adopted as daughters of God, through Jesus Christ), our call is to trust God, overcoming those temptations to nag or fight or even leave with the power of the Word. Some might call that being a doormat. I call it living in victory and fighting the devil for the sake of our marriage. I am, after all, planning our 50th wedding anniversary party that’s coming in 31 years.
The best place to be when things get hard is in the Word of God. Because
Stay busy about the business God has given you. Love your children, keep your home, fix the meals. If the TV causes you to brood, turn it off. If time on the internet causes you to neglect your family, cut it out. Just do the next thing, and try to find some joy in the fact that you are able to even participate in God’s world and work.
