How to Guard Your True Desire in a Christian Marriage

Are you a perfect wife?  I am far from perfect.  And please don’t ask my husband – because I’m sure he could list far more flaws in me than I see.  Honestly though, none of us are perfect… but do you ever imagine what it would look like if we were?    In a perfect world husband and wife would both work intentionally toward the greatest desire of our Christian marriage.  Our husbands would lead wisely and love us passionately.  We as wives would honor our husband and respect them.

Perfect world or not, we both need those things from the other.  So what do we do with the conflict between our needs Vs our reality?

We could just walk away saying “I’ll change when he does.”   I have done that – I have a divorce certificate to prove it.  It didn’t bring the peace and satisfaction I was longing for.

I want to suggest that we try something different… some would call it radical.  But when I think of discipleship – following Jesus example, I think “well, Jesus was radical, so that’s okay Right?!?!”

The first Radical piece of the #WifeLife from a Biblical World View starts in Luke 17:33 (NASB)

“Whoever seeks to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.”

Seeking to keep my life is like doing what I’ve always done in my marriage but waiting for it to change.  If I want a different result, I have to do a different thing.

What do you desire in your Christian Marriage?

My desire started simply with wanting our Marriage to last ‘Til Death do us part’ – no divorce – but it has evolved now to include:

  • A desire to connect in real ways
  • To be a team that works together
  • Raising children who know how to do marriage God’s way
  • re-building trust

Do you need some encouragement to keep pressing into that Daily Commitment?
