Every marriage and relationship go through difficulties at one time or the other.
This is why it is very important you know how to handle them and how not to. The way you handle challenges and the pressures will determine it’s impact and the consequence long after it’s gone.

The other thing you need to put into play is wisdom. Wisdom is knowledge, understanding, good judgement and intelligence. This is the ability to apply knowledge in order to achieve a desired result.
Every problem no matter how overwhelming or complicated it looks has an answer. As you trust God He will provide you with how to succeed. Humble yourself and listen to God for wisdom. Take advantage of wise people around you ask for help.
Don’t give up or act unwisely, because you don’t know what to do. Not knowing what to do is not a reason to do the wrong thing.
Starve your negative feelings and emotions and feed yourself with the word of God, listen to others you know will help you get to where God wants you. If you don’t know what to do just, keep walking in love and obedience to the word of God you know.
For every wise step you take in obedience to God more direction to victory will come your way.
