When things get tense with my husband and we make plans to drop everything and spend some time away from the house together. Even if it’s just to drive to some of our favorite places in town or grab dessert.
6. Take a trip down memory lane.
I remember when things got rough for us and I was feeling terrible about myself, where I was in life and our marriage. My husband packed me and the kids up and drove around town for an hour.
I didn’t realize it until we were half way through the ride, but he had driven past all of the locations that held significance in our marriage.
Where we met, our old church, our first apartment, where we got married, etc. He reminded me how far we’d come together and it restored my strength to fight for our marriage.
He will give you the strength to forgive when you have a right to hold a grudge.
When your husband sees that kind of mercy, he will also be able to experience the unconditional love of Christ through you.
Depending on where you are in your relationship with Christ, some of these may seem impossible to do. There was a time when they seemed impossible to me, but God has been faithful to me every step of the way in my marriage.
As I began to trust that He wanted what’s best for me, trusting His word in relation to my marriage became easier and easier.
Marriage between a man and woman is God’s idea. It’s his blueprint for the family and He wants your’s to be successful.
Your marriage may seem hard right now, but I promise it doesn’t have to remain that way.
God is more than able to restore the love you once had and make today’s struggles a distant memory.
If your marriage is in a rough spot right begin by repenting of anything you’ve done to contribute to the current situation.
Next, begin reading something from the Bible everyday regarding character and marriage. Examine yourself to see if you are conducting yourself within your marriage in a way that pleases God.
Continue reading and praying for Gods divine help so that you can be more like Him in your marriage.
I’d love to join you in praying for your marriage to be healed and whole. If you have a prayer need or even praise for what God has done in your marriage, please let me know in the comments below.
