Encouragement from a Struggling Husband
Life has been quite difficult lately. The last year, and especially the last 6-8 weeks have been the most difficult in our lives. Added stress increases my desire for comfort and sex from my lovely bride, but drops it to the bottom of her list. Not surprising, our marital conflict increases.
I could have written this last spring! Let me add one more: God’s working out his plan and purposes for His glory (Romans 8:28). Often we can’t see what the end result will be, but He knows the good he has planned, and how it will bless us. You’re right to draw near to God, and I pray that he will draw near to you, my brother.
This is the epitome of “fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith…..For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”
It’s a great encouragement.
