Over the last 15 years, we have counseled with more couples than we can remember. Now in our 25th year of marriage, we have seen so many that it is hard to keep them all in our minds. Their is one word which seems to come up in our conversations with couples over and over again. Hopeless! It's hopeless, we hear from either the hudband or wife or both.
We have learned that nothing is impossible with God. He can make the situation that appears hopeless turn around. He just needs a willing partner to help turn it around by agreeing with what His word has to say. "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we will not give up." Gal. 6:9
If we will invite the Holy Spirit to show us the way in the troubled waters where marriage can sometimes take us, we will see Him rescue us if we are willing to continue doing what is right. We should not grow tired of doing what is right because we shall see the fruits of our efforts as long as we press through.
