Everyday Marriage Unity
I’d been helping a couple through some difficult times in their marriage, and I was so encouraged by their willingness to focus on Christ while looking at what they needed to do as individuals. Hey, this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters.
Hannah wrote saying, “In working on our marriage Ryan and I are finally realizing that we need to look through the eyes of Jesus when we’re angry and frustrated because when anger takes over, we get lost and caught up in our own individual "rights." We lost sight of the goal which is to have a restored marriage. It’s so hard to let go of the offense and hurt but in the end, we know that’s what real forgiveness is, letting the other off our hook and putting them on God’s hook. Please pray that I’ll continue to honor my husband and stay focused on Jesus.” Hannah’s prayer was from Philippians 2:2 and it’s as well, asking God to give us the grace and strength to agree wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose…everyday.
