Hang in There, Friend! Your Marriage Is Worth It!


There have been moments in my life and my marriage that were painful – physically and emotionally.  I can say that I have only endured through those trying circumstances because of God’s love for me.  He is the One who gave me the strength to persevere, the wisdom to know how to address certain hardships, and/or a kind word from a friend with impeccable timing.  Words like:

It’s going to be ok.

               You can do this.

                        God is with you.


                                                Hang in there, my friend.

Words like these are treasures to my weak heart, lifting me up in times of need.  They are the words we speak when we cannot promise a successful strategy out of a situation, when encouragement is necessary and vital.

Our stories and situations all vary.  The degree to which we experience pain, hurt, or loss is different from person to person.  My marriage failures and triumphs are not yours and vice versa.  Yet, no matter what our circumstances tell us, these words have the power to help us get through.  I wanted to extend to those of you in moments of trial and pain — to those who are taxed and depleted, words I hope and pray bring you comfort and strength to help you make it through another day.

Hang in there, my friend!

Draw near to God and He will carry you. He will give you rest. He will fill you with wisdom and the strength to carry on.  You are worth encouraging and your marriage is worth fighting for.  Your husband is worth fighting for.  Hang in there! Endure! Persevere!

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you, He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. – Deuteronomy 31:8

We will have been married 9 years this month and he wants the divorce, I certainly do not. People have been telling me to let my marriage go but I don’t believe that that is what I’m supposed to be doing. I believe that I need to keep standing and fighting for my marriage.
