I had a very messy marriage back in the day, and this was directly related to an even messier view of my identity. My lagging sense of self worth set me up for pursuing my husband as my savior, instead of pursuing my Savior as my Savior.
Oh sure, I’d received Christ as my Savior when I was a child, but as I began to follow Him in my life, and especially once married, I let the distractions of my own insecurities draw me off the narrow path and into a ditch.
I’m not saying I lost my salvation, but I surely lost my way when it came to understanding who Christ was in my life, as well as who He wasn’t. In other words, my Savior was not my husband, nor could my flawed human husband replace Christ in my life. Nonetheless, I was determined to make that work!
