Hidden Struggles

You cannot always tell how people are doing, or what kind of shape their marriage is in.

I remember more than one marriage at church that imploded and nobody had a clue until one spouse completely threw in the towel.

A few months ago we received this letter from a women that participated in an Awaken-Love Class.

When I was asked to be apart of a 6-week Awaken Love class, I thought to myself what in the world was God thinking! Turns out he knew what he was doing. My marriage of 24 years was on the brink of divorce. There wasn’t any thing that was going to change my mind, I was done. During this class, I learned a lot about how much God loves marriage and how much he’s involved in our marriage beds. I will forever be grateful for the class and the other 6 women, who have become sweet friends. I cherish the time we shared together. The books are awesome too. I plan to read them from front to back. Oh and by the way, my husband was disappointed when the 6 weeks was over. He looked forward to each weeks homework. Our intimacy, our sex life, our love for each other has grown. He told me just this morning that we’re making love more now than ever before. We have both been changed.
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart,

This woman had been involved in church and marriage ministry for years, and my guess is that few people knew what was really going on in her life.

Most women that follow our blog are probably in pretty good shape in their marriage. Honestly, if your marriage is struggling, the last thing women want to read about is how to make their sex life better.

So why am I telling  you this?

Because you probably have friends whose marriage is in trouble and you don’t even know it. You probably have friends where sex is a sore spot in their marriage and something that they would rather avoid in hopes it will just disappear.

But if  you invited them to an Awaken-Love class, they just might take a chance to make things better.

Sex cannot fix a marriage, but it can sure help. Somehow it seems to put us in a more neutral arena where we hear each other a little better and feel each other’s heart. And many of us women have things wrong. We just do. We make assumptions about sex and our husbands based on what society has told us rather than God’s word.

So if you follow this blog, and you have a good marriage, consider the women that might be strengthened by facilitating an Awaken-Love class.

You never know whose marriage you are going to impact. 

And trust me…

you will see God move in amazing ways.

  1. I sure wish I could show this to my wife. I just think she would be so mad and tell me she just feels like she is never enough when all I really want to do is be close to her.

    • Anonymous,
      I am sorry that you do not think your wife would be open to a discussion about taking a class. I love what you said, “all I really want to do is be close to her.” Keep trying to love her other ways, pray for her and look for an opportunity to share your heart.
      Ruth
