Woman: When I was fourteen, my dad died, and then I got married at sixteen. I look back and can see how I wanted my husband to be my security. I didn’t think I could possibly live without my husband, and really, I was just suffocating him.
Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: A lot of women think the purpose of marriage is to make them happy.
Woman: Some friends showed me that I needed to turn loose and get my happiness from God instead. Once I did that, I was so free. Now we’re about to celebrate fifteen years of marriage.
Nancy: The truth is, no one can make us truly happy other than God.
Man: Psalm 73:25 Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.
Nancy: If you’re trying to get your needs met from someone else, you’ll probably end up pushing them away. But if you get your joy from your relationship with the Lord, He’ll give you the strength you need to serve and love your husband.
Are you looking to God or to another person to meet your deepest needs?
With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
