What brings a marriage to a place of recovery?
Agree or disagree: Sin causes a fracture in relationships.
Ok, so why are we caught off guard to the extent that we are ready to throw in the towel in the thick of conflict?
I find that at times nothing bothers me, I’m quick to forgive or overlook an offense, yet at other times I put myself in a place of frustrated apathy. I feel confused and am satisfied with the disconnection.
Humble is the last place I want to be.
As I consider this I realize these feelings come up when I’ve been misunderstood or perceive a false accusation.
What gives your life purpose?
My life would be devoid of purpose if…
Can I love without God, can I give without God?
Therefore, my life is an expression of my relationship with God.
So, it stands to reason that my relationship is a reflection of me.
If I am not giving, not loving, I’ve disconnected from God.
When man becomes god, it is impossible for him not to dehumanize those around him.
What I want from my wife is for her to help me feel good about me.
This is a vertical problem trying to be solved horizontally.
A man at peace with his wife, is not at peace with his wife. He is at peace with himself. Ephesians 5:28 (How does that happen?)
If your wife is not the priority she will soon become the interruption.
Let me ask you, if we stand our ground in our preference, and that creates insecurity in the heart of our spouse and she withdraws and disconnects, was it worth it? How many times will this scenario take place before her heart dies?
Sometimes the troubles within my marriage will be brought to conclusion through the quietness of my heart.
