I want more than anything to be married. To have someone to come home to and be able to talk with. Someone who will give me a hug and tell me it will be ok when times get tough. Someone to listen to me. That is the true desire of my heart, and my heart aches knowing that now is not God’s timing.
At the same time, my heart is breaking for those who are married and having issues. Everywhere I turn I hear people having marriage difficulties. I feel the burden people are carrying, and to be honest, I am not sure what to do about it. After all, I am twenty-six and SINGLE!! What would I know about married life?
Here is what I do know: ANY relationship is difficult and it takes a sincere effort to make it work. The other thing I know is God is ultimately in control and there is no situation that he can’t restore. No one is too far gone to be out of the reach of God’s grace. His grace is sufficient for you, and when we put Jesus in the center of our lives everything else will be blessed. This includes your marriage.
My prayer for those who are having difficulty in their marriage is to stop, evaluate, and look to Jesus.
His grace is sufficient for you. Take this time to focus on how much Jesus loves and adores you. He is the ONLY one who can fulfill the hole in your heart. No one else can, including your husband. I urge you to ask God to meet your emotional needs, and then look to Jesus’ finished work to fulfill them.
