Making Marriage Work
Looking at the society today, it is filled with so much negativism about life and marriage especially.
With the news of divorce and stories of failed marriages here and there, there is need to put in so much effort in our marriages too.
Marriage requires work for it to work. That couple you so much admire put so much work into theirs and I’m here to encourage you to do same in yours too.
Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men (Colossians 3:23 AMP)
Your marriage can be another person’s goals too. Your marriage must work.
This shouldn’t be just a decision but a conviction and mindset.
Make God a priority. Make Him the number one. Understanding that you have only one source (God) and your happiness comes from Him alone is very crucial.
Put God in charge of your work, then what you’ve planned will take place. (Proverbs 16:3 MSG)
Learn to pray as a couple
Study the Bible together
Engage in reading challenges as husband and wife.
Do fun things together.
Find the right company, those who are willing to hold your hands and walk through this journey together.
There are lots of resources online that will keep you both motivated.
Get someone you both can be accountable too. Someone both of you can easily talk to, and someone who prays for and with you.
You’re not in a competition with your spouse, it’s a partnership venture.
When one partner is weak, it takes a toll on both partners. When both partners are strong, then they will be able to go far together.
The goal is to stay together and in love forever. Are you ready to take up this challenge?
No matter how good or bad the state of your marriage is now, it can be better. Your marriage is worth fighting for and it is definitely worth the work.
Are you willing to put in work into your marriage?
