I Felt So Alone in My FamilyVideo provided by: Christian Life Assembly

If you’ve ever felt like you’re the only one carrying your family, Maggie can relate. “Even though I asked Christian to help me with the kids,” she says, “he didn’t respond. He just kept doing his own stuff. Trying to do everything, juggling work and taking care of the kids and home I was overwhelmed.”

Christian explains, “I wanted to relax and not think about anything so I would play video games to get over my stress.”

They had no idea that a simple cookie was about to be the first step in bringing their family back together.

If you feel all alone in your marriage, here are three ways we can help:

1. Take a look at the spiritual health of your marriage.

2. Talk to a mentor – you can ask a mentor anything and you’ll get a response back in a private email.  (What is mentoring?)

3. Attend a Weekend to Remember marriage enrichment conference.  Thousands of couples across Canada and the US have found hope, help and a future through these conferences.

Do you know what it’s like to have God in your life? You can know God today.

    If God did it for Maggie and Christian, He can do it for you too! Try Him.

    Alfred, you have blessed my heart. You made the right decision. At times we are pushed to the wall and when we can no longer fight, the best we can do is to surrender, humble ourselves in God’s presence. When in a similar situation, feeling hopeless, this led me to write my book that I have called “Facing Rejection”. This is because I realised that the issues I was struggling with were not unique to man and that we all go through such phases in life. The beauty of all is that God convicted you and that you are walking along the right path alongside your wife. Our God is a God of order!

    I too had an addiction since my youth; and now my wife was carrying the family. I felt so guilty and so helpless.
    Well, here’s my story of how God turned me around: After growing up in a Christian home and being baptized as a teenager, I drifted for 30 years. I had a vague feeling that all was not well, but did not realize how far I’d fallen. With considerable difficulty I did hold onto a job, but was not getting ahead. I had lost rapport with my family (wife and 3 children), felt lonely and even bitter at times. I even looked at horoscopes, but found that evil spirits were starting to cater to me. I was horrified. I prayed that God show me how to straiten out my life. Then God gave me a dream in which I was on my way to hell, and I knew why. That shook me up! For the next 7 days, upon returning home from work, I knelt by my bed and wept bitterly for Jesus to wash me clean. Then I felt refreshed! I asked God what the next step would be, upon which a friend invited me to a Full Gospel Business Men’s meeting. There I received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. What a thrill. I have never been the same since! I’d let go of God, but in His mercy, He had not let go of me. In His love, He drew me closer to Himself than I’d ever been before. My wife and I were led to participate in a Bible study for couples, which helped us to again find one-another. God is now leading me day by day to serve Him. There is so much to do, and so little time. Yet with His guidance people are helped and I am blessed.
    It seems to me that the greater the depth to which one has fallen, the higher God is able to lift us, and the more we love HIM for it. There is hope and purpose for you! As God lifted me, so He will lift you, and give your life direction! Peace and Joy, Alfred.
