Marriage Can Be Hard, But…
…no matter what your situation is, there is hope and you are not alone!
Before my wife (Marianne) and I were married, we received some incredible biblical counsel from our pastor and it helped us to have realistic expectations and great excitement for the journey we were about to embark on!
Understanding God’s design for marriage was immensely helpful to us and saved us from falling victim to many of the common pitfalls that plague newlyweds. That is why I believe it is vital for us all to have an accurate understanding of how God designed life to work best. If we do things God’s way, life won’t always be easy but He has promised that it will be good!
Our marriage has not always been easy. Marianne and I are both sinners who needed a savior. We have experienced loss, suffering, pain, and have sinned against each other. But God has used all of that to change our hearts and to make us more like Jesus in the way we treat each other. As we learn to see our situations the way God sees them, we see that He is in control and that He is always working things out in order to sanctify us and to make us more into the image of Christ.
So, no matter what your situation is, there is hope and you are not alone! Our God is the God of reconciliation, and He wants us to develop a truly biblical view of ourselves, our world, our situations, sin, redemption, and the gospel. If we can do that, we can enjoy restored relationships and a renewed purpose in this life.
Marianne and I have now been married for more than a decade and have welcomed 5 beautiful children into the world. I am a House Church pastor at Church Project and have received my biblical counseling training through The Association of Biblical Counselors (ABC).
