As couples we have to find a way of moving towards our goal in life and marriage.
All manners of things and distractions tend to weigh us down.
We wish life could be smooth and a smooth sailing, but we also know that life does happen.
Influences here and there whether demonic or otherwise.
Jesus Christ and his disciples also experienced similar setbacks when he told his disciplines to embark on a journey.
Their destination was somewhere on the other side of the lake.
Instead of a smooth sailing the encountered a storm on the way
Luke 4:35-38 (KJV)
And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not.  And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.  And the fame of him went out into every place of the country round about.  And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon’s house. And Simon’s wife’s mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought him for her.
Jesus’ disciples were much afraid and troubled. They were moved by the wind and the storm.
To the extent that they doubted even when loved of God.
For we walk by faith, not by sight
As couples, when we move to make progress in life, storms of different kinds arise to stop us
Let us learn to always call upon Jesus. He is the prince of Peace, the one who calms every storm in our life and he will calm every storm we could ever face.
At the end of it all, we will share our testimony of having the victory.
Don’t let us allow storms to stop us from achieving our goals.
Keep your goal and your desire to advance in life. Don’t be afraid of storms, instead move forward.
God bless your marriage
