Do you ever have those days when you feel like you’ve lost yourself? Do you ever feel that being in your marriage has taken your voice away? I know that during this pandemic, we have been busy being the husband/wife, the parent, the employee/employer, student, and all the other roles we play in any given day, and often neglecting our role as spouse becuase it doesn’t seem to matter. Well, I’ve dropped by today to remind you that your marriage matters!
When you are feeling silenced, or lost in your marriage, I wonder if you’re falling prey to the tactics of the enemy, or holding fast to the promises of God? When I’ve felt isolated and unimportant in my previous relationships, I discovered that I WAS a part of the problem. When you’re not making an effort to engage and communicate daily, it will cause you to want to distance yourself from your spouse. The constant distancing will in turn, cause you to seek engagement in other people – that’s a NO NO!
Marriage is a covenant relationship with GOd first, and then each other. People enter into marriage with “pie in the sky” expectations, not investing in counseling for guidance, insight, or strategy; with the thought that we’ll be happy everyday and it will be problem free. Wake up, marriages have moments or turmoil, pain and change, but you can make it through all of that – I’m a witness. Today, know that whatever you’re feeling in your marriage that seems beyond repair, don’t give up just yet. There are often individual, internal challenges that you brought with you that are affecting how you’re functioning in your marriage – don’t give up!
After reading this, if you’re married, do me a favor and contact your spouse and remind them of how much them mean to you. Remind them of WHY you’ll got married in the first place. Remind them that you’ll have made a promise to God and each other to endure through the good and bad, and that nothing should seperate you’ll. Remind your spouse today that your marriage matters!
