Gone Without a Trace: Understanding Ghosting and Its Emotional Impact

Ghosting is the act of abruptly ending all communication with someone without any explanation, leaving the person on the receiving end feeling confused, hurt, and often questioning what went wrong.

8 Lies Satan Whispers to You About Your Marriage

I wrestled with God on this lie.

Let me share what I had to learn — there are some exceptions in the case of abuse, but if you are experiencing problems in your marriage, it’s partially because of your own sin and these problems/sins would occur in a different parallel universe (haha!) marriage as well.

It’s only through sanctification through the Holy Spirit that you can get over these stumbling blocks. Not through different/easier circumstances.

3. You are alone. Your husband is against you — he is your enemy

Loneliness is one of the most effective tools in Satan’s arsenal. 

Satan knows that we are designed for communion and community… and knows when we are functioning (or surviving) outside of our design, we are most likely to entertain the whispers from ANYONE, including even him.

To get us to this place, he appeals to our pride. He plants seeds in our heart that the whole world is against us, that we have no true friends, and even our own husband is pitted against us.

When we succumb to the point of believing this lie, the marriage relationship is often most susceptible to emotional, mental, and sexual affairs.

4. Your sins are not as bad as your husband’s sins

Again appealing to our pride, the devil is a slanderer and wants you to feel that your sins within your marriage are NO BIG DEAL! That every wife does the same things as you. But your husband’s sins? Goodness, what a monster! (Yup, been there, believed that…! Pretty sure I bought the t-shirt too…)

Satan wants you to believe that your husband is beyond repair; that even God Himself is either unable or unwilling to change Your Husband’s heart towards his sin.

This particular lie is so far from the truth that you HAVE to realize it comes from the pits of Hell itself. God is in the redeeming business and adores His children. He would never abandon us, and when we come back into fellowship with Him, He throws a party! (See Jesus’ parable of the Prodigal Son, Luke 15:11–32

5. You are tired and deserve better treatment from your husband

Satan loves to attack us most when we are tired, sick, emotionally drained, spiritually low… Why? He’s a lion prowling around looking for someone to devour.

Satan can’t touch your spiritual standing with God, but he can attempt to harm your witness and make your life miserable.

6. Take this Bible verse and justify your behavior toward your husband

A lot of times women will look at the verses about how husbands should love their wives and ignore the verses about how wives should respect their husbands or submit to their own husbands. (Ephesians 5:22-23).

If your husband is using Bible verses against you like a club to the head, that’s not loving in the least. You also shouldn’t do the same to your husband. Don’t use the Word of God as a weapon to nag your husband with.

7. Your pain is big — too big for the outdated Bible

Lies from Satan include telling you that the Bible doesn’t apply to you. Or if that isn’t a lie that he thinks you’ll believe, he might just barely twist God’s Word. Satan loves it when we misquote the Word and when we spread lies to each other about God’s truths.

8. Your children are more important than your marriage

When on autopilot, I think a lot of moms fall into this trap. Sometimes we can find that our kids are easier to relate to because they are so open. Ladies, believe it or not, Satan can and will use your kids to break you and your husband apart. Don’t let him do this! Satan wants a foothold in your children’s lives, and unfortunately, he knows that without a stable mom and dad relationship, this can be an easy route for him to take.

ANY OF THESE LIES FROM SATAN CAN BE REWORKED OR REWORDED AT DIFFERENT TIMES; TRYING TO GET YOU TO BELIEVE THAT THEY AREN’T ACTUALLY COMING FROM HIM. BUT DON’T WORRY…

There’s hope!

NONE of these lies from Satan have permanent dominion over your life. With the power of God, you can overtake any single lie that Satan is trying to manipulate you into believing.

Satan may seem like a powerful being, and he is the prince of this world, but God is the Father of all, and God is so much more powerful. Satan is afraid of the Trinity! Even in the human temptation of Jesus Himself, Satan ultimately obeyed the Son of God.

Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written,“ ‘You shall worship the Lord your God and Him only shall you serve.’ ” Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and were ministering to Him.” Matthew 4:10-11

Take immense hope in the fact that if you have the Holy Spirit in you, and Satan or his demons can try to whisper lies into your ear, but he can never possess a Christian because you are a temple of the Holy Spirit. You are a princess of the Father in Heaven! Ultimately, we can hear two voices, but the Father will always win the battle.

“The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.”  Romans 16:20
