Living Out God’s Word in a Difficult Marriage

Living out God's Word in a difficult marriage is impossible without God's help. Here's my story of how God helped me stay faithful in the tough times.

Living out God’s Word in a difficult marriage is not easy. Far from it. In fact, it’s completely impossible in our own strength.

Our marriage hasn’t always been easy. There have been seasons of bliss, to be sure. But there have been seasons of excruciating difficulty.

The day after the dreaded “D word” was first mentioned between my husband and me, I found myself aimlessly driving around town. Tears streamed so thick, I had to pull off the road. “God, I don’t want a divorce. There has to be another option. Help us!”

That momentous day was almost 20 years ago and we’re still married. By the grace of God. And because of the power of His Word.

I’m sharing my story over at Messy Marriage this week. Visit Beth’s blog to read how God equipped me, directed me, and sustained me through the most trying seasons of our marriage.
