Christa and I have been married for 23, going on 24 Years. While we have had Many Rough spots, The Smooth spots have Won out in a Big way! Whenever we get to a place where we think, “I’m Done!, We’re Done ! It’s Over!” …. We take a step back, Regroup and say ok, Let’s roll up our sleeves and work this out. 100% of the time, when we do this, We Succeed in Our Marriage.
How do we pull it off? How do We Succeed? …
God is How! I don’t know how many times, when we are in an argument (usually about something stupid)
I stop and Listen to God telling me, Why, are you two arguing about something so petty as this?
Remember my words in Colossians 3:12-17 “ Therefore, As God’s chosen people, Holy and dearly Loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord Forgave You. And over all these virtues put on Love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the Peace of Christ rule in your Hearts, since as members of one body you were called to Peace. And be thankful.”
WOW!, Suddenly, the petty stuff we were arguing about, doesn’t even matter anymore. Talk about Humbling. God has seen us through Many Trials since we’ve been together and I’m sure there’s more to come. But that’s ok because, God IS the 3rd Strand in the rope that holds Our Marriage together. As the Bible say’s – A three cord strand is NOT Easily broken – Ecclesiastes 4:12.
When we rely on ourselves to “Fix” our marriage, we will fail every time. God Heals, Strengthens and Repairs.
