Nobody walks down the aisle to say “I do,” hoping for a mediocre, difficult marriage that ends in divorce.
Marriage, as Paul wrote, carries its own demands, distractions, and disappointments.
Even within the Garden of Eden before the Fall, Adam did not complete Eve. She wanted more and needed more. But our husbands were never created to fulfill our every need.
Marriage is made up of two people, but we can only control ourselves and what we bring to our marriage. It can and must begin with a change in us.
God calls us to do ALL things with excellence, which means that we should give 100% of ourselves to everything that He has given us. Marriage isn’t 50/50. It should always be 100/100.
When you examine your heart and become more like Jesus in every area of life, that flows deeply and widely into your relationship with your spouse.
If you have been here for long, you know I love talking about real life – even the hard and uncomfortable things people don’t always want to discuss. I made a list of my podcast episodes that are solely about nurturing and growing deeper in your marriage. I hope you come back to this list often and share it with your friends who are married. In order to have a thriving marriage in today’s world, we have to commit to working on it every day. I hope these episodes encourage you to do that.
