Responding to Crisis As a Couple

Crisis is a fact of life. It’s not a matter of if, but when the next one will hit. This is not morbid introspection; it’s just the reality of living in a sinful and chaotic world. So the question you as a couple need to address is this: How are you going to respond to each new crisis as it comes?

Roman 8:28 comes to your rescue: “All things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Knowing that God is in control of all things allows you to trust Him for all things.

Wherever you are in your marriage — whether you are newlyweds or seasoned veterans — resolve together to turn your next crisis over to God as soon as it hits. Believe in God’s promise that He will produce good out of that crisis. Refuse to cave in, give up, or run away. Unite your hearts, grasp hold of each other’s hands, pray, stand shoulder to shoulder, and face the crisis. Together, do whatever is necessary. And trust God fully, knowing that He is working out His plan for you and your marriage. In the end, you’ll be blessed with a stronger marriage because you did it together.
