Should I Take My Burdens to Jesus Rather Than My Husband?
Emerson addresses the question of whether wives should take their burdens to Jesus instead of their husbands. Emerson emphasizes the importance of doing both but shares what two wives discovered about doing both. One of the wives experienced a change in the marriage that stunned her. Emerson addresses the reason for the joy she encountered with her husband. In this Ask Emerson, he focuses on Christ's invitation to bring burdens to him and some suggestions on how to bring emotional hurts to a husband.
Questions to Consider
- Wives can find greater peace and security by entrusting certain issues to Christ rather than expressing them to their spouses. How might this practice align with the biblical concept of casting anxieties upon the Lord and seeking His guidance before engaging in discussion within the marriage? How might such a faith-centered approach influence the dynamics of a Christian marriage?
- Why do you think that when we address Jesus first with our burdens, at times we will feel less of a need to also bring it up to our spouse?
- What adjustments do you need to make today in order to get closer to achieving the right balance of where you place your burdens?
