This is a wife who made romance, control and feeling loved in very specific ways her idols. She is going through the painful process of ripping out all of her idols and submitting completely to Christ. Your idols may be different. Maybe you feel like you HAVE to have a boyfriend, or get married, be a certain size, be beautiful, have lots of money, be famous, or have children. If there is something you believe you MUST have to be happy in this life – and it is not Jesus Christ – it is time to check your heart to see if that thing may be an idol. An idol is often the opposite of something we greatly fear.
Only Jesus Christ can fill our deepest longings and meet our needs and bring us true contentment!
