Celebrate What You Have And Things Will Get Better – Part 6

Celebrate What You Have And Things Will Get Better – Part 6

One of the things that may be lacking in our relationship with our spouse may be not celebrating each other enough.

We allow ourselves to be blinded to the ‘good’ in our own spouse. Once we begin to believe these lies, what we believe begins to be our reality. 

There’s always something good you can be grateful for in your spouse. He/she is not perfect, yes, but at least he/she is not as bad as the devil, lol.

Yes, your spouse has many imperfections. You don’t have any business counting his/her many faults. You will weary yourself by doing that.

A wisdom quote says, ‘ In Marriage you have to learn to be blind and deaf if you must make a success out of it”

You have to be blind to your spouses fault and deaf to their shortcomings. Not that we won’t correct them or seek for them to improve, but we don’t have to focus on their faults.

The danger in focussing on their shortcomings is that we end up filling our hearts with those negative emotions that rises from comparison.

2Co 10:12 
Not that we [have the audacity to] venture to class or [even to] compare ourselves with some who exalt and furnish testimonials for themselves! However, when they measure themselves with themselves and compare themselves with one another, they are without understanding and behave unwisely. 

We end up comparing our spouse. Meanwhile we are all on a different journey and God has different plans for our lives.

Once we are married, we should know that we are in it for good, for better for worse. We may face difficulties and it may seem tough, but if we walk by Gods principles, we will laugh last and all things will work together for our good.

Learn to celebrate yourselves. Celebrate your differences. Celebrate the good and leave the bad for God to work on.

God bless our marriage.
