Pride, humility and marriage

If patience is worth anything, it must endure to the end of time. And a living faith will last in the midst of the blackest storm.

 

I love the old saying,

“Have you prayed about it as much as you have talked about it?”

Everyday I sit and listen to conversations around me. Some are funny. Some are sad. Some are very disrespectful.

Never put your spouse down in anyway when he/she is not around.

Never talk about your problems to anyone who is not a Godly person. If you find a Godly person, make sure that they will give you a biblical answer. (If you ever find yourself in a situation where someone who is talking to you, is talking negatively about their spouse, be bold enough to explain that this is not respectful to their other half.)

Most importantly PRAY about the situation first and be willing to change.

Matthew 21:22 –And all things, whatever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.

Matthew 7:7,11 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, …

Matthew 18:19 Again I say to you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching …

Most of the time, if there is a problem in the relationship, YOU had some sort of dealings in it too. It’s not always the other person. Pride is the biggest killer of relationships.

Toward the end of our three month separation there was a time where I could of hung on to my pride and not taken Shane back or vice versa. During this time he told me flat to my face that he didn’t love me anymore. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was sitting on the Fire truck because I had gone up there to try to talk to him. The eyes I was looking into at that point was not the same eyes of the man I married. Heck, the eyes he looked at for a year, were not the eyes he married. If I remember correctly I told him the exact same thing months before. We were both broken, tired, and worn out. We just wanted to be happy. We had some good influences and some bad. Thank God that pride didn’t rear his ugly head and win the battle we was in.

Proverbs 18:12
Before a downfall the heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor.

Be willing to fight for your marriage and never stop fighting for it. August 11, 2015 will be 5 years and we still have to fight for our marriage. The devil is still trying to tear us apart every chance he gets. Never let anyone come between you and your spouse. Never let any situation be bigger than your love for each other.

If you learn only one thing from this blog today, please make it be this….

There was a time when you loved your spouse more than life itself. The way they made you laugh, the kiss on the forehead, the booty smack every time you walk by (inside joke)…Remember those things and tell Satan to get under your feet! Pray for yourself, pray for your spouse and allow a heart transplant to take place. When that happens God can now fit you together spiritually and you both can become one. That, my friends, will be the BEST relationship ever!

Blessings,

Lisa
