Dealing With Fear In marriage

Dealing With Fear In marriage

We all have insecurities. Insecurities from our past, from our failures, weaknesses, relationships, abuse, from our parents, from unpleasant events etc.

If we don’t learn how to deal with these fears and insecurities, they will steal the joy and intimacy in marriage.

A dance of fear happens when both the husband and wife have certain fears they have not dealt with in their relationship and the fear is controlling their actions. 

They don’t relate based on love but they allow their fears to dictate how they relate to each other.

Example is the husband that has the fear of being controlled by his wife, the fear of being disrespected, fear of being dishonored and the fear of failure. This type of husband will not fully love his wife.

He puts up a defence mechanism all the time to protect himself from his fears.

The wife who in turn has fears of being rejected, not being loved, fear of being dominated and controlled, there is no way she can fully submit to her husband.

The fear will control their activities.

We as believers need to exercise our God given authority over these fears and disarm them from our home and marriages.

We need to confront our fears and be sincere about them. We need to recognise the fears we have and deal with them squarely.

Talk to your wife and husband and when you need the help of a mentor don’t hesitate to call on them. 

We have our mentors and just recently we were with them. They helped us by the grace of God sort out a very crucial point in our marriage. After wards it looked like it was never a problem, that’s what mentors do, they help us.

May God help us all.

God bless our marriage.
