Dude, who doesn't need help HELP for their marriage, work, emotions & life? I don't know the details of your life---but I know LIFE. Life is hard. People can be jerky. Money can get tight. Inconveniences and genuine hardships come--ALWYAYS when we DON'T want them to come, etc. etc. etc.
And if that paragraph was the END of the story... well, I wouldn't be sitting here today if that was the case.
Here's the AWESOME NEWS---that's NOT the end of the story.
There's a whole new chapter called, "God Is Good." And I like to cally it "God Is Gooder than life is hard." :-)
So---if you have a few struggles in any of the areas mentioned above--or maybe other areas of your life, let me ask you a personal question, "How's your walk with God?" I'm NOT asking, Do you believe in God... I'm asking How's your DAILY WALK/RELATIONSHIP with Him? Are you HUNGRY for His Word? Are you asking Him throughout your day... moment by moment to rule and reign and guard and encourage and embolden and convict... you?
You see... "...where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." If Jesus is (not just present, but) actively invited into your daily... minute by minute thought life--HE will produce a supernatural joy and peace that surpases understanding (Phil. 4:7). He will set you free from YOU--free from worring abyout what others think about you. Free from worry about what might happen to you---As you walk with Him daily, emptying yourself of "self" and inviting the Spirit of Jesus for fill your heart (emotions) and mind more and more each day--ASSURANCE (which is a confidence and a peace that is based NOT on you, or anything in this world--but 100% on Christ) will GROW in you. As ASSURANCE grows in you--you enthusiasm for life will replace worry--because you know God is with you, in you, for you and loves you----and as you are filled up with that assurance & enthusiasm, it will OVERFLOW into your marrage, work, emotions, etc.
"You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows." (Ps. 23:5)
What I'm describing is the process of spiritual growth... maturing in your walk with Jesus. As you grow in Christ---faith replaces worry, insecurity, defensiveness, stress, fear, etc... I.e. it replaces every negative aspect of "broken life" and replaces it with all of the divine aspects of "born again life"... things like, love, joy, peach patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control--these are the FRUIT... the "result" of a life that passionately seeks God daily (Gal. 5:22-23).
So... would a mind and heart overflowing with freedom from self... filled with divine assurance and the spiritual fruits of ove, joy, peach patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control help your marriage, work and emotions?
Ya... me too!
Guess what--God is right here... right now... You are as close to Him... as filled up with Him as you choose to be---because He's already declared that He wants to be you're all-in-all! Seek Him today... and every day---unswervingly and passionately--and you WILL be so blessed by what HE will do in you!
