Last Friday I attended an all day Marriage Seminar by Dr. David Clarke.

During the seminar, Dr. Clarke shared about a scenario that he sees in marriages that are on the brink of divorce. Women come into his office who are miserable. They have stuffed down all their needs for years and there in his office they finally release all that they have been feeling. By this point, their marriage is hanging on by a thread. The wife is angry and bitter and has enabled her husband to treat her wrongly. Their marriage is damaged and restoration is hard work.
I hope to encourage anyone who feels like they are hanging onto the side of a cliff and about to fall. If you feel like you are just too tired and too weary and you can’t hang on anymore. You need to pray. Pray about your hurts and needs and then tell your husband “we need to talk“. This will set the stage for a serious discussion.
The video below will explain further.
If your spouse is struggling with an addiction – you need outside help in your marriage. Please see a pastor, elder, an older woman you trust or call a Christian counsellor. Focus on the Family has a 1-800 number that you can call Monday through Friday 6am to 8pm. It’s 1-800-232-6459.
Do not wait to address the festering sores in your marriage until you end up a statistic. Work on your marriage today. I am praying for all – May God Bless your marriages ten fold!
