Communication Is So Important In Marriage

Communication Is So Important In Marriage

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Communication Is So Important In Marriage. I started writing yesterday on things that should be present in every marriage and we looked at one thing yesterday. Today we look at four more things. 

The second thing that must be present in every marriage that will succeed has to do with communication.

Communication Is So Important In Marriage. Constant Communication. A man was once asked what the three most important things in a marriage are.

His response:

1. Communication
2. Communication
3. Communication

Do I agree? Yes, I fully do!

When communication dies, assumptions, suspicions, lies, and deception will take over.

There is nothing as beautiful as a marriage where both parties can fully express themselves.
Hear each other out!

When a man talks, his goal may be a logical explanation, but when a woman talks, it is more than an explanation, it is a release; an emotional release.

So every time she is muted, there are pent-up tensions being stored up for a later time. 

It is akin to the molten magma within, nothing shows on the surface much, but one day, the magma can no longer hold still, and there will be a volcanic eruption causing untold havoc!

Unexplained hurts, unexpressed bitterness, are all like the molten magma in the belly of the ground.

So, when you tell your spouse to “shut up” continually, and it looks as though you are in charge and winning, well, you are not really winning, you are actually losing!

Allow free expression in your matrimonial home.

When a lady is also reluctant to talk or communicate, it shows some deeper issues as well.

Both husband and wife have to be committed to communication. The excuse of temperaments should not be brought in.

Well, people at work, in church, or elsewhere can look at you and say you are a quiet person, but your spouse should be able to say “you are not quiet to them!” This shows they are friends!

Make the commitment to be friends and to keep talking. Communication Is So Important In Marriage.

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I will keep communicating with my spouse

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, help me to work on areas where I am lacking 

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Mat 12:35 (MSG) A good person produces good deeds and words season after season. An evil person is a blight on the orchard.

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Have a time out with your spouse 

READ THROUGH THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
Matthew 12

Help Pastor, We Don’t Communicate Well in Marriage

Help Pastor, We Don’t Communicate Well in Marriage

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Help Pastor, We Don’t Communicate Well in Marriage! Communication is so important in marriage. Just as you can do for long without food, the same way, you cannot do without communication in marriage.

There must be good communication between a husband and wife.

A husband and wife must talk about everything and anything. They must not be secretive and they must not hide anything for one another.

Never allow your communication to degenerate into mono-syllable answers, where it seems only one party is doing the talking.

Communication is so important that whole cities and countries have been brought down simply because the two parties involved cannot understand one another.

This is this story of Tower of Babel. They had a great goal; to build a city whose top will reach unto the heavens, God attested to their feat that they would do it.

The only way for God to stop their ambition is to touch their language and they could not understand each other.

Their language became confounded. Once that happened, their project was brought to an abrupt  end.

May I dare say that a lot of opportunities have been truncated because the husband and wife are busy fighting and throwing tantrums, and withdrawing from themselves.

Help Pastor, We Don’t Communicate Well in Marriage! Learn to talk in your marriage.

For communication to take place, there must be a person who is willing to receive and another who is willing to share.

When either party does not want to share and at the same time doesn’t want to receive, that may be a major issue there.

Help Pastor, We Don’t Communicate Well in Marriage! If you are the quiet one in your marriage, then you must consciously encourage your spouse when he or she is talking or joking.

Also, deliberately respond to your spouse and don’t just shake your head. Your spouse is not a Radio station which talks alone most of the time.

Be deliberate about good communication. I pray that God grant you more wisdom. Be blessed! 

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I am helped in my marriage. Our communication is getting better.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, strengthen me in my are of weaknesses

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Gen 11:7 (MSG) Come, we’ll go down and garble their speech so they won’t understand each other.”

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Decide to initiate a meaningful conversation between you and your spouse

BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY
Genesis 11

Levels of Communication in Marriage – Part 5

Levels of Communication in Marriage – Part 5

Reading Time: 2 minutes

COUPLES

Continued from yesterday…

We have been considering several levels of communication in the last few days. We have looked at

1. The Hallway talker

2. Reporter’s Talk

3. Intellectual Talk

4. Emotional Talk.

This morning, we will be considering the last and highest level of Communication.

5. Loving, Genuine Truth Talk

‘Let’s Be Honest’.

This level allows us to speak the truth in love. It is a place of honesty without condemnation.

Most couples are finding out that such open, honest and loving communication enhances a much deeper level of intimacy, where couples can share their feelings and thoughts without feeling unsafe. Both have a sense of safety and security. This requires an attitude of acceptance.

You know your spouse understands you even if they don’t agree with you.

We can always agree to disagree without shaming ourselves or making us look less smart. We can have differing opinions and still be friends. No hurts, no guilt, no condemnation and we are still good to go.

We can’t be the same. Remember, acceptance is the key.

We may start out on the first level of communication, but please, don’t let us remain there.

As a couple, we should aim at moving higher in the way we relate, understand, and communicate with each other. This will require a certain level of work and being intentional about getting to understand your spouse.

The higher we grow in our level of communicating with ourselves, the more intimate we grow with our spouse.

I pray God will grant us wisdom and grace and help us all to communicate better in Jesus name.

God bless our marriage

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
My marriage will be a blessing to many

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Oh Lord, teach me how to communicate effectively

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. –Jeremiah 33:3 (KJV)

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Pray in the Spirit

BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY
Job 23-25

Levels of Communication in Marriage – Part 4

Levels of Communication in Marriage – Part 4

Reading Time: 2 minutes

COUPLES –

Continued from yesterday

This type of conversation is not just limited to a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ answer. The wife’s or husband’s opinion is needed and necessary.

For example,
‘Are the children eating rice this afternoon?’ ‘I don’t think it will be the best option for them. They need more vegetables in their diet’.

It is important to note that, the question, what do you think about….is so important in husband-wife conversations.

Your husband or wife’s opinion matters and don’t want them feeling like they are not smart. If the wife is just accepting every decision made and is not really a part of the decision-making process and involved in the intellectual aspect of thinking through, there will eventually be problems later on in the marriage.

4. Emotional Talk.

‘Let me tell you how I feel’.

In this fourth level of Communication, we share our feelings. When our feelings are shared, we share ourselves because we are what and how we feel.

We are simply making ourselves vulnerable. When we share with our mate how we feel, the intention is not whether we are right or wrong. We mostly don’t want to be judged because of how we feel. We just need our spouse to listen, understand and accept that that’s the way we feel.

We kill intimacy when we are quick to judge the feeling. I am not saying we should not correct but first acknowledge your spouse’s feelings.

It is more difficult for most people to share their feelings than their thoughts. These are two very different things

‘I feel that guy is a thief’.

‘I feel the car will break down’

‘I am thinking the issue with the woman is not natural’.

When you share your feelings, you are expressive. When you don’t share your deepest feelings, a path of you is left hidden or covered.

When you share your feelings, you are vulnerable, open, unashamed, no inhibitions.

Couples should aim at growing together into this fourth level of communication, to enjoy a higher level of intimacy.

In our concluding part, I will be talking about how your marriage can move up on the level of Communication and you both can become intimate couples. The goal in every marriage should be to know each other and be as intimate with your spouse as much as possible.

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
My marriage will be a blessing to many

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Oh Lord, teach me how to communicate effectively

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. –Jeremiah 33:3 (KJV)

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Pray in the Spirit

Levels of Communication in Marriage – Part 3

Levels of Communication in Marriage – Part 3

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Continued from yesterday…

COUPLES –

So we learned how important communication is in marriage. Not just anyhow communication but husbands and wives should dedicate time and attention to proper and effective ways to communicate with each other.

It can’t be over-emphasized, that Intimacy in marriage can only be brought as we grow from one level of Communication to the other levels.

There are five levels of Communication. I started with the first level yesterday, which is Hallway talker. Today, I am continuing:

2. Reporter’s Talk

This level is a step further than the first. Here, the conversation moves from general talks to talking or giving facts or information about events. It is a reported kind of talk.

Here more information is given, but still, this kind of conversation does not promote intimacy. In level two communication, we do not express our opinions, thoughts, or how we feel about the subject matter.

If you are at this level two communication, your aim should be to move up and climb the steps of effective communication so that intimacy could be engendered.

Remember, level two communication is summarized; Just give me the facts.

3.  Intellectual Talk

In this conversation level, your spouse is given the freedom to think differently. This is an amazing gift to give each other in marriage.

It is recognizing the fact that each one of you is a unique individual with a different perspective, viewpoint, and way of reasoning.

Marriage is trying to bring our way of thinking into alignment without suffocating the uniqueness of each other’s thinking. Two becoming one is choosing the best of our different thinking patterns and or merging our different opinions till we arrive at the best alternative.

When we recognize our weaknesses and strength and know that each one of us has a role and part to play and that neither of us is superior to another. We will honor each other and give each other the opportunity to air their opinions.

To be continued…

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
My marriage will be a blessing to many

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Oh Lord, teach me how to communicate effectively

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
