Get through it together.

“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:57

Years ago after an argument, I told my husband, I was leaving. I went to the closet and started packing a suitcase. He came over to me and said, “Where are you going?” I told him, “I’m leaving. I can’t take this anymore.” We had been struggling for a long time and I was tired. As I stuffed clothes in my suitcase, he looked at me and said, “We got in this mess together and we’re getting out of it together.”

I unpacked with tears.

The greatest marriages you admire all have their stories of how they made it through sickness, financial crisis, job layoffs, family issues, baby momma drama, loss of loved ones and the list goes on. These relationships have gone through the ups and downs of life, but they got through it together.

I’m glad I unpacked that suitcase years ago because the good days are so much sweeter when you’re with the one that stuck with you through the bad days.

No matter what you face, the Lord will cause you to triumph in everything.

Prayer: Thank you Father, for the encouragement. Thank you for helping me not to give up on my marriage when things get tough. You are faithful. You will see us through every problem we face. Help us to see past what’s in front of us to what you have waiting for us. You will bring us through victoriously because you are good. Help us to get on one accord and get before your face and your word. Be glorified in my marriage Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read 2 Corinthians 2:14-15; Psalms 84:11; Psalm 66:12)

    This is so on time! My husband relapsed the day before you posted this. We have been fighting first mine (I have been set free for years now) and now his addiction together for the past few years. His treatment providers dont understand why I stay. I have tried to explain that I married this man knowing he had faults and failings. That the future of him addiction free is so hopeful to me that I want to see him successful. It hurts but I know if I left him over this it would literally be what sends him back into full fledged addiction and kill him. God promised me years ago he would set my husband free and I believe God, He has always fulfilled his promises. Thank you for helping to remind me, and the others, we can see it through with God. A cord of 3 strands…

    This is a testimony of true love. God binds us together with love. I commend your husband for taking a stand to safe the marriage. Nothing is impossible with God and there’s no sorrows on earth that Heaven cannot cure. Wishing you and your husband all the best moving forward.
