Do you ever feel alone? Like you are the only one struggling in a Christian Marriage? You are not alone. Today I am honored to shine the light on a beautiful Testimony of a Woman with Joy in her Marriage.
Ifeoma is a woman who pursues God with all of her heart on her spot online – Purposeful And Meaningful. I love her heart as she shares “In all I am learning to trust God more deeply as I walk this pilgrim’s journey.”
She shares today on her site (here is an excerpt):
Our couple photo hangs on the wall. It was our pre-wedding photo to be precise. Obi and I love that photo.
Sometimes, I bring down that photo frame get on my knees and just pray.
Aside the memories that flood my heart, do you know what else I see?
Hang there a while, I’d share with you in a bit.
Life has changed since the pre-wedding photo shoot. I have changed, my lines of thinking constantly challenged, adjusting and expanding.
Whoever said marriage is a school was right. Might I add that, Marriage is an advanced school.
While I have lots to learn, it breaks my heart every time I meet couples struggling to find joy that once was in their marriage. Today seems right for me to share simple ways you can find joy in your marriage today.
Do you need some encouragement to keep pressing into that Daily Commitment to your Marriage? We could all use a community to help us in Reclaiming Hope & Joy in our marriages!
We just finished a 31 day Series to help us Reclaim Hope & Joy in Marriage by Intentionally Investing in our Christian Marriage. Get the articles Free in this downloadable e-Book. And Be sure to check out the Wives Only FB Group where Christian Wives chose Hope and Joy in every Season
We are far from perfect. Do you sense an unquenchable need to drive a life of perfection? Whether through your spouses or your own life or your kids, you need to stop!
You have shortcomings! Your husband does! Everyone has them.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God,
You need to accept your shortcomings too. We all need to take on God’s Perfection for our imperfect lives
Learn to give grace to your shortcomings and to those of others as well. Believe me it takes some hard work. I have been there too.
But you will find joy instead of faults, comparison, complains and nags
