I said a couple of days ago, and in our midweek Bible study, that one of the hardest things I deal with is not being able to help or repair broken situations. It’s not in me, but it is in the power of God to do so. Nonetheless, there are times I face a question I just can’t answer for one who is suffering, and this one is common, “My spouse doesn’t love me.”
What’s tough is that we can’t make someone love us. That’s something even God won’t do. Love is a choice, and we can’t make choices for anyone else. Today I saw this video by John Piper answering this very question. It doesn’t solve the problem, but it’s the only answer that is appropriate sometimes…
In summary, and from my own heart… don’t ask how you can change your spouse’s heart, you can only change yourself. What is it about you that can change, realizing that there may not be anything about you that needs to change. So lean on prayer the way I mention in this posted message. And don’t hesitate to email me asking for prayer – it’s one of the reasons I’m on this earth and you are never a bother!
