So, what’s your marriage like? How do you feel about your relationship with your husband?
Do you feel as though you’re struggling to even like the guy you married? Do you love your husband deeply, yet long for him to grow into more of the godly man you desire? Do you crave more joy in your marriage, more peace, more contentment?
Or are you feeling pretty satisfied with your married life? Are you feeling like your marriage couldn’t possibly get any better? Are you overjoyed with your husband and love every minute you spend with him?
No matter what season you are in with your spouse and in your married life, there is one thing that is crucial for your marriage to thrive, grow and blossom:
Your personal relationship with God needs to be your top priority.
If your relationship with God is strong and growing, you will be bringing more joy into your marriage.
Why? Because having a dedicated relationship with God will bring your heart peace and joy…making you a better person, a better friend, a better wife, a better help meet .
That’s the result of choosing to put God first in your life. Peace. Joy. Contentment.
Will you always be happy? Will things always go your way? Nope. Will you be able to change anything about your husband? Maybe. Maybe not.
But if your relationship with God is what it should be…you will have joy in your life. You’ll have peace in your life that passes all understanding. You’ll be content knowing that you’re doing just what God wants you to do.
Don’t you want that kind of wife for your husband? Doesn’t it give you a little thrill thinking about the kind of wife you can be to your man, just by learning more about God and His desires for you?
Let God teach you and transform you into the wife you need to be.
Spend time daily (constantly) with God, reading His word, meditating on what He’s trying to tell you, talking to Him about what He needs you to do, listening to Him, praising Him.
I know many of us struggle with spending special time with God each day (and we have all kinds of excuses). It takes effort. It takes discipline. It takes desire.
Be intentional. Your marriage depends on it.
