We find pain in marriage and it confuses us. Discover how this pain can be sweetened with Christ.
We’ve been taught to offer up our pain but not all of us have been taught to sit in our pain… to invite Christ into our pain. What if Christ’s deep longing is for us to sit with him in agony? It sounds scary but the opposite is true, it feels like peace.
In this episode, Sterling talks about two ways to view marriage pain in relation to Christ’s passion and Christ’s love for us. It’s an incredibly powerful turnaround for your current struggles.

TRANSCRIPT OF THE SHOW
Hi, and welcome to the Made for Greatness podcast. I’m your host today, Sterling Jaquith. And today on episode 73, I wanna talk about Christ and husbands. And I wanna talk about marriage in a different way than I’ve talked about it before, because I’m experiencing it in a different way than I’ve experienced it before. And so my husband and I had a challenging week last week, and you know, it’s funny, I can’t even remember specifically what we were talking about, but it often is something like you criticize me too much and that, and you don’t respect me. And then you don’t really love me deeply. And then we’ll get into a discussion about the different types of love. And, you know, we’re just both hurt and feeling a lack of comfort and then feeling confused that this is supposed to be our most cherished and safe first relationship.
