“I just don’t see how this is going to work.”
I hear this a lot when I’m talking to women who have reached out to me for marital help. I’ve said it before in my own marriage. When you have a marriage relationship that has deep wounds, grievous sins, and seemingly impossible situations, it can be easy to let your mind wander to the hopeless places. But part of what helps us all through those messy, long, hard times is identifying crippling lies that seek to hinder our relational recovery and discovering the truth of who we are, who God is, and what He desires for our marriages.
As you go through each point, ask yourself, “Have I told myself this lie lately? Am I believing this about my marriage?”
