Have you ever sat with a wife sobbing uncontrollably because her husband just walked out? Have you ever counseled with a man whose wife left him for another? Have you ever talked to a young person who is broken over their parent’s divorce? Have you ever comforted a friend who is living with past regrets? Have you witnessed the devastation that a broken marriage has brought to a family?
Marriage troubles are devastating. In fact, recently I posted an online marriage survey and the responses would break your heart. People are hurting. Men and women are giving up. And, every month or two I hear of another marriage ripped apart.
Ripped apart by sin.
Ripped apart by selfishness.
Ripped apart by worldly influences.
Perhaps, you are in the middle of marriage heartache right now and in need of a friend and biblical encouragement. Let me be that friend who points you to the One with all the answers.
Call out to the Lord
Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3)
Cast your cares on Him
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. (1Peter 5:7)
Cease from anger
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. (Psalms 37:8)
Cling to His mercies
Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies. (Psams 69:16)
Commit your ways
Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. (Psalms 37:5)
I don’t know what you are going through right now. But, I do know that life gets extremely difficult when your marriage is in trouble. You are not alone. The Lord knows what you are going through. He cares about your marriage. He wants to do a work in your life for His glory. Go to His Word. Seek out His answers and trust in Him, dear friend. He cares for you and He will never fail you.
