What Lysa TerKeurst’s Divorce Tells Us About Our Own Marriages

I love my husband with my whole heart. He loves me with all of his. We desire no one but each other. But if I think that can’t change, I’m a fool, and so is he.

At some point, Art TerKeurst made one bad choice that led to a slew of others. And so can I. And so can my spouse. And so can you and yours.

But God. Cling to him, my loves. And to the one he’s bound you to through marriage.

All my love and prayers are with the TerKeursts today. Say some prayers for them, and for your marriage, and your friends’ marriages. And remember, when times do get tough, what Lysa says here:

 My true identity doesn’t shift or fall apart under life’s strains, failures, my own imperfections, setbacks or heartaches. While people—even God’s people—change, I’m so glad I serve a God who doesn’t. I love this verse in Malachi 3:6—’I the Lord do not change; therefore you, children of Jacob, are not consumed.’
