Good Morning Beloved!

Being married can be joyful, sad, exciting, depressing, or even frustrating. It can cause you to question yourself, “did I marry the right person?”. Being married can bring rejection, loneliness, and abandonment from your spouse. It cause you to question if your spouse truly love you. It’s really sad and heart breaking when you’re newlyweds and there is no romance or passion in your marriage. Some would give up on their marriage and move on, others may eventually engage in an affair, and maybe 1/3 will cry out to the Lord concerning their marriage. The divorce rate amongst Christians is at 50% right now. Most men and women, when they don’t feel loved or appreciated, will leave without trying to find out how to improve their marriage. Everyone’s situation is different and before you allow your emotions to control your decision, I advise you seek Godly counsel. Some may receive a miracle while others have to wait. In the meantime, give all your concerns and issues to the Lord.

 

 

“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” 1 Peter 5:7 KJV

 

 

“Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord.  For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing[a] her by the washing with water through the word,  and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.  After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church—  for we are members of his body.  “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”[b] This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church.  However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.” Ephesians 5:21-33 NIV
