Yes, that’s a chorus line from an 80s pop song. And it also may sound like the title of an episode addressing some type of addiction, but in the sense that I mean- well... maybe it actually is my own case of addiction... I might just be addicted to your podcast! So, can you do an episode on that issue? 😉 But seriously, I do feel like there aren’t enough hours in my day to be able to listen to all of the past episodes, while going back to re-listen and take notes on the countless episodes that seem written for me (or my spouse, or both of us).
I recently became a patron, so I now face another sense of overwhelming goodness- in the wealth of bonus material. I’m provided with so many helpful resources, like a filing cabinet overflowing with essential documents and evidence critical to solving a cold-case mystery (that’s the way my struggling marriage can often seem). Just when I’m ready to throw in the towel on persevering and putting in the hours to “crack the code”, another episode with key insights emerges from the filling cabinet.
Your efforts are clearly led and blessed by God. No doubt, He has used you, and continues to use you to help restore weak and, or failing marriages, as well as to positively impact the lives of individuals struggling with doubt and despair. I’m sure there are other wives like me (or perhaps husbands, too) who listen alone, in hopes that God will help us persevere in endlessly laboring for our marriage (which at times, may mean that we’re carrying this very heavy load uphill all alone).
Still, with God’s faithfulness, His loving right hand holding mine, and the tools that you provide through your podcast “lessons” and the bonus materials, I believe my marriage has a fighting chance. If I can get out of the way and let God lead me (submit to Him as He works on my character through this guidance), He can and will restore to me the joy of my marriage and renew it as one that brings Him glory. This is the hope that your podcast (and God’s Word) gives me!
Thank you both! Lifting up prayers of gratitude for your commitment to your mission!
