I spend a lot of time here at Messy Marriage giving practical helps and tools for dealing with the messes in marriage, but the bottom line is that none of that matters if you don’t settle one thing!
If you’re a believer and you are struggling in your marriage, perhaps the most powerful thing you can do is make Christ the Lord of your life and situation.
There’s resurrection power in making Him the Lord of …
- Your conflicts by yielding to Him and His ways in the heat of the moment.
- Your unmet longings by letting Him, your One true Love, fill up what your spouse cannot.
- Your fear of abandonment by surrendering that at the feet of a Savior who will never leave you.
- Your unchanging and often discouraging marriage and situation by letting God transform “you.”
And if you have never received Christ’s gift of forgiveness and salvation, then consider making that commitment on this most momentous weekend—Easter! There is resurrection power available to us whenever you and I make Christ our Lord and Savior! Death no longer is our master and our lives are made so much more rich and abundant through His grace.

So if you are experiencing a life and marriage that is less than satisfying, I pray that you would turn to the Lord for a hope that will not disappoint! 🙂
“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” ~Rom. 5:1-5
If you’re a believer: what has making Christ your Lord done for your life and marriage?
If you’re not a believer: what hinders you from making that commitment?
