3 Ways To Overcome in a Troubled Marriage

When my life first turned upside down, my prayer was that God would somehow take my story – a troubled marriage – and use it to minister to others. I’m amazed at the many ways God is honoring that prayer. Alisa approached me about sharing a post in her Overcome series, and I said yes because the Scripture she based the series on has had such a special place in my life.

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of their testimony….
Revelation 12:11

The stories we live through, the things that God does in our lives – they can be used by God to encourage others. I know that personally, I’d rather avoid the struggles and trials, but if God an use what I’m going through to help someone else, I feel like I can be a little stronger.

Throughout the stresses, upheavals and trials in my marriage for the past 3 years, my prayer has been that God would (somehow!) use my story to encourage others. That’s what motivates me to write – the fact that there may be another wife out there who needs to know that she can stay, she can fight, for her marriage.

But, how do you overcome in a marriage riddled with deceit and addiction,
leading to pain and intense shame?

How do you fight the battle that you never wanted? 

Are you in a troubled marriage? When marriages face problems, it's hard to remember that we can overcome. Here are 3 ways to overcome in a troubled marriage

  1. I am asking for prayer. I found out in January that I was finally pregnant after 3 miscarriages and an ectopic pregnancy. I found out in February, one day after our 16 year anniversary that my husband had an affair with one of our friends. She had gotten pregnant but had a miscarriage. I decided to stay. In April I found out that he had another affair and she was 10 weeks pregnant. Now my husband says he needs to tell me something else but wants to wait until after our baby is born as to not cause stress. So he wants me to wait 3 more months and I am devastated as to what he has to tell me. I don’t know if I should leave or stay!? I am so confused!
