The Marriage Lies
The first five years of my marriage were really tough! Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst for Proverbs 31 Ministries.
There was bitterness and yelling. There were slammed doors and thoughts of giving up. There were, marriage lies:
* I married the wrong person.
* He should make me feel loved.
* There’s someone better out there.
I believed those lies and said so to my friends who nodded mostly in agreement. But one didn’t.
She gently asked, “Lysa, what does the Bible say?”
The Bible?! I didn’t think her “religious suggestion” would help me. But her question just kept echoing in my mind.
Reluctantly, I turned to some of those verses she suggested. But the love in my relationship didn’t feel like the Bible was describing, kind or patience. It felt broken. However, that first step triggered events that eventually saved my marriage!
Boy, am I thankful for a friend brave enough to challenge me.
