What is The Greatest Problem In My Marriage?
I see about ten couples each week in my coaching business. Some are working on communication, others are overcoming the heartache of addiction or betrayal, and some feel hopeless.
So, what is the greatest problem in my marriage?
Easy answer – I am.
When couples take ownership of their life and their sin, the relationship can start to move forward.
The Bible is clear where the source of relationship issues is;
James 4:1-3 – What is causing the quarrels and fights among you? Don’t they come from the evil desires at war within you? 2 You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have, but you can’t get it, so you fight and wage war to take it away from them. Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it. 3 And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure. 
Matthew 15:18 – “But the words you speak come from the heart—that’s what defiles you. 19 For from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft, lying, and slander. 20 These are what defile you. Eating with unwashed hands will never defile you.” 
If my marriage is messy, I have to start with myself first. I have to address my sin issue.
If you are experiencing struggles in your marriage, look in the mirror and begin with yourself. God is opposed to the proud, but He gives MORE grace to the humble.
