Do You Trust God with Your Marriage?
These 3 words sound nice in theory, but the reality is, they are so hard to put into practice, especially when it comes to marriage, more specifically, following your husband’s leadership.
One wife wrote in sharing her struggles….
I have a very difficult time being submissive… and I feel very helpless because I don’t know how to change to put my husband’s needs first. I also have a very difficult time with god. Could you help me with this?
Since most wives love to have control and because it’s difficult to exercise your faith in God, in this video I share how you can trust God with your marriage.

Hi Jolene, Can you give me a little more advice on Trust/Faith/Surrender? I have a good marriage (were working on it, it has been very rocky to say the least). I have been putting my husband up in prayer as well as myself for change to be who God want us to be in our marriage. My issue is I do have esteem problems and there are times I feel he checks other women out. I have tried to talk with him gently about it and not accuse him, but he says he is NOT checking any other woman out and that he only has eyes for me. Jolene, I can watch his eyes and they go up and down the woman he is “not” looking at, or he spots her in a store then looks away but proceeds to look down the next isle like he is looking for something on the shelf. If were standing in a checkout line in a grocery store he glances over at the magazines that show too much skin,(but excepted by the world) and then looks away like I’m not looking at them. I know I should not let it bother me, but it does make me feel less than. I do pray God bring the truth to light. I know He has brought things to light in the past. My husband lied to me for over a year that he was not smoking, this was last summer up until Feb. of this year, but I felt he was and prayed on that, God brought it to light. He still smokes but he at least admitted he had lied. So I do have some trust issue with my husband. I know he loves me, but it does hurt. Any advice other than what I am doing? Thank you so much and may God bless you and your ministry.
Sorry to hear about your marital struggles. Here are some prior posts that I wrote that may help you with your situation. When Your Husband is Attracted to Other Women and Kick Insecurities to the Curb.
And you gotta see it, guys, this is where 1 Peter 3:1–6 for the wives, 1 Peter 3:7 for the men, they go together. That the wife has fears, but she needs to walk in faith and holiness and submissiveness and the man needs to alleviate those fears by loving and leading in a Christ-like, honoring, considerate way, respecting her, being considerate of her. If at any point, one doesn’t do their responsibilities, the marriage is very acrimonious, difficult and hard. If they both submit to the Scriptures and the Lord Jesus Christ, then ultimately they can work through these things and they can have a happy marriage. They can raise children in that context.
