Love & War

When I opened this book and began reading it, my first thoughts were, “Wow! They are writing about my marriage.” Sometimes we feel so alone in our marriages. We look around wondering if we are the only ones who struggle with loving our spouse or even simply liking them. In their book “Love and War” John and Stasi Eldredge, disclose their own struggles in marriage helping their readers realize that marriage is hard, “fabulously hard”, but with God as the foundational center and sole focus, marriage can be done and done well.

Having been in a marriage that was headed for divorce, the thing I appreciate most about this book is the fact that the Elderedge’s reiterate time and time again that one’s happiness is not wrapped up in what their spouse can give them, but rather what God provides for them. God is the only one who can meet every need, fill every hole, and heal every wound. And, God is the only one who can fill our hearts with true love for our spouse.

“We live in a love story, set in the midst of war.” A war that requires us to fight for our marriages and fight hard. A war that requires you and I to step out of the picture and allow God to work; to work in our hearts, so that we are able to love hard.
