As Valentines Day approaches I am reminded of how God blessed me with such an amazing husband. As a wife I could easily nit pick all the things my husband does wrong, but how can God bless me if that is where my focus is? Instead I pray to God to show me all of my husband’s strengths and to look at him with honor for all the things he is doing right. I honestly feel that by doing that my marriage has been transformed. How would you feel if someone kept pointing out all of your wrongs? If you could do nothing right, what would motivate you to change?
Reflecting back in my early years of school I remembered all of the teachers that made a positive impact in my life. All of those teachers had something in common. They praised all of my hard work. They pointed out my qualities. Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. (Proverbs 12:18) Never do I remember them pointing out my faults. Wives and husbands I encourage you to take your marriage and your spouse to the Lord. Pray that God will show you what it truly means to love your spouse. The bible says “Love is not self seeking, it’s not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrong.” (1 Corinthians 13:5 ) If you are overwhelmed and do not even know where to start to repair your marriage give us a call. We are here to help.
