Light. It has a way of providing direction when we need it most. Have you ever experienced total darkness? The kind where you can’t see your hand in front of your face? I have and it can be paralyzing.
We visited Cumberland Caverns in Tennessee years ago and I will never forget being in the back of the cave. They provided benches for us to sit on while they turned off all the lights. With one flick of the switch we were in total darkness. I didn’t like it and was relieved when the light returned.
Difficulty in marriage can feel like this. We get stuck in the dark and aren’t sure how to find our way out into the light of understanding. If left alone it can drive you crazy and make you feel alone even if you aren’t.
With a new month we would like to devote time addressing areas in your marriage in need of help. We have created the following poll to allow you to anonymously share your honest answers.
While we are not professional marriage counselors, we care deeply about marriages. We want yours to succeed. And we want to know the topics which are of most importance to you and your spouse right now. We will take the top answers and spend time this month discussing them at length. We will share what some of our favorite pastors and authors have to say on the topic, as well as things we have learned ourselves. We pray this series will prove to be helpful and allow the light to shine brightly again in your relationship.
Thank you for taking the time to do this, and please, feel free to share this post with your married friends.
