Could we live in a way that we are so keenly aware of our union with Jesus that our daily experience is one of great joy? He makes his home IN us. We are never away from him. His love is inside of us. We get to make ourselves at home in his love.
After more than a decade as a Marriage and Family Therapist, I can tell you a few things with certainty:
1) The vast majority of marriages truly can be salvaged (in my opinion).
2) The biggest obstacle that most people face in marriage is their own selfishness, not their partner’s.
I had gotten my hopes up so many times, sure that things would improve. They just had to. I couldn't continue living like we were.
Except, they really didn't improve. Like, at all.
Oh, there was a slight upshot for a few days, but eventually everything just crumbled...again.
