Five Tips To Having A Graceful Marriage – Part 2

Yesterday, we looked at two of these tips, which are
1.Giving
2.Respect.

We will continue on this topic this morning.

3. ACCEPT

There is a great need for accepting your spouse. There is a difference between not accepting your spouse and loving them as they are.

Every character issue or difference our spouse’s show now have always been with them when we were courting. The difference between now and then is that we accepted those character flaws because we were in love.

Love truly is blind but in marriage, our eyes are opened, hallelujah.

Accept your spouse for who they are. We are not giving to change our spouses. Only God’s word and His Spirit can change them. So pray.

You mean I don’t have to talk? Well, yes. At least you minimize your talking and ranting.

But if I don’t talk, how will he/she change? You can talk but not angrily. Because you trust God is the enforcer and the one to change your spouse.

So you give your spouse the gift of ‘accepting’ them. That love you demonstrate can even make them want to change.

4. COMPROMISE

In marriage, we must learn to compromise. We live a successful married life when we learn to live a little to the left, a little to the right.

In marriage, you stop living for yourself and start to live for your spouse.
Don’t you ever insist on your own if you want your marriage to be graceful.

My husband, when we were courting, loved beans. He could eat beans three times a day and still eat it the next day. But I was a rice person. On campus then, we always ate together. So he will be like beans and I will be like rice. But we both compromised. Today, we don’t have any issues of whether to eat rice or beans.

Beans provide a high source of protein, so I even opt for beans atimes. My Husband also prefers rice now and hardly does he eat beans. He complains it makes him bloat.

That is a simple one, but we solved that issue by learning to compromise. We were both willing to compromise.

5. EMPATHY

In marriage, we are to show empathy towards our spouse. Where there is no empathy, love is absent. You love your spouse when you are able to empathize with whatever they are feeling.

Empathy simply put is to put yourself in your spouse’s position and feel what they feel. When you are in your spouse’s shoe, you become like they are and feel for them.

Don’t just stay in your position as a male and make decisions. Sometimes, feel what it means to a female and just understand, and vice versa.

Wives, try to be husband for a while with the burden of leading the home and see that it is not easy. So learn to empathize with one another.

There is still more to talk about in this topic. Join me on the concluding part tomorrow by God’s Grace.

God bless your marriage.

Three Important Points To Note About Marriage

Three Important Points To Note About Marriage

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Every marriage that seeks to fulfill the mandate of Heaven must seek to do these 3 things.

Every marriage, especially the ones ordained from heaven has a mandate to fulfill. This mandate requires a lot of focus and hard work. A lot of things will be screaming at you to give up pursuing your mandate.

Joyce Meyer said in one of her videos that thank God Dave never gave up on her too quickly. Was Dave frustrated? Yes. Did it seem like it was not worth it? Yes. What if Dave and Joyce had given up on themselves and their marriage? Saying the road was too though? Thank God they made it and are fulfilling the mandate upon their marriage.

Let’s go through these three important things needed in every marriage.

1. Accept your spouse.

In accepting your spouse you accept everything about them, their weaknesses, strengths, challenges, background, past, present future, their body makeup, etc. It is a full acceptance. Once you are married, you are into that person fully.

Someone said, my husband talks a lot, he snores, he is slow… oh good. It’s a whole package.

2. Believe in your spouse.
You not only accept your spouse but you also need to believe in them. Believe they can get better. Believe they can change. Believe their weaknesses can become their greatest source of strength. Believe there are some ‘good’ in them. Believe God’s Mercy will find you and your marriage will work out.

3. Confess your love for your spouse.
This is so powerful because our confessions are so powerful. If you make it a habit to confess and declare those things you want to see in your spouse and in your relationship. The more you confess your love for your spouse the more your love for him/ her grows.  Don’t confess what you don’t want to see or experience in your marriage. Continually fill your mouth with positive things concerning your spouse and your marriage.

God bless our marriage

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
My marriage will fulfill God’s Mandate on it.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, help to focus on my spouse

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Mat 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
I begin to put to practice what I have learned

BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY
John 10
