With all the drama and pop culture surrounding union, it’s no surprise that so many Christian marriages are ending in divorce. But the truth is, it does not need to be this way.
As a Christian wife, here’s what this means to you. If you can understand the power of God within you to overcome any weapon the enemy gifts, you can create a totally new marriage.
Now, I know that your husband has a duty too, but this journey to a happy marriage can start with you… if that’s what you want.
What 3 important actions are they?
Let’s look at the 3 keys to experiencing and staying happily married:
1) Recognize that the devil sets you up to get you mad because he knows your weaknesses or regions of growth. Be honest about your areas of growth. As an example, if you do not enjoy having sex, ask yourself why. Sex among other things frequently plays a big role in the marriage relationship. In the earlier years of our today twenty-year union, I couldn’t fully enjoy sex due to the baggage of previous relationships.
But instead of wallowing in self-pity and blaming other guys for why I could not enjoy my husband in a romantic way, I took action and worked to break the soul ties of my past so I could give my all to my husband in the bedroom.
2) Constantly forgive your husband. Give him the space and grace to grow. You need him to do the same for you, do not you?
This doesn’t include abuse and serial adultery. If this is true, I encourage you to seek support from a faith-based third-party such as a Pastor, counselor, or organization that specializes in these areas.
I will be honest, for many years, (yes, as a Christian), I didn’t like praying. In fact, I dreaded it because I felt like I had been saying the same thing every day, yet getting no results.
Out of these three keys, I recommend first beginning your journey to a happier marriage with prayer. Being able to pray properly for your union is not complicated.
