Foaming, Grinding Or Stiff As A Board?

Foaming, Grinding Or Stiff As A Board?

Foaming, Grinding, Or Stiff As A Board? Mr. Johnson would get the award of “most ranting husband” effortlessly, and uncontested. His wife would get a prize too. “Most withdrawn wife” The anomaly in their marriage is too pronounced. Mr. Johnson thinks he is an expert in communication because he talks! Sadly, communication is not “just talking!” Mrs. Johnson believes she is the most submissive wife because she hardly talks, but sadly too, her withdrawal into her shell is a form of rebellion, not loud but stubborn! 

Their marriage is at crossroads, things are falling apart and the center refused to hold. 

The event we started looking at yesterday illustrates the situation in many marriages and relationships! 

Mar 9:17-18 (MSG)
[17] A man out of the crowd answered, “Teacher, I brought my mute son,
MADE SPEECHLESS by a demon, to you. [18] Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He FOAMS AT the mouth, GRINDS HIS TEETH, and goes STIFF AS A BOARD. I told your disciples, hoping they could deliver him, but they couldn’t.”

There are relationships that are speechless, but sexual! 

There are marriages that are speechless, and survive on sign languages of irritation, frowns, and so on. 

There are marriages rather than bringing forth speech, what is coming out are foams.

There are marriages where rather than communicating, it’s just grinding of teeth.

There are relationships and marriages where the individuals are stiff as a board where commutation is concerned.

Foaming, Grinding, Or Stiff As A Board?

Rantings, complaining, murmuring, and internalizing are all anomalies that can be referred to as foaming, grinding of teeth, and going stiff as a board. 

Now you can’t go to your loved one and say “You see, you’ve been foaming or you’ve been grinding your teeth” That will be counter-productive.

However, these actions are what the devil uses to replace actual healthy communication! 

Remember what I told you before? True communication involves the 7-38-55 rule. The rule states that 7 percent of meaning is communicated through spoken word, 38 percent through tone of voice, and 55 percent through body language.

So, remember when the tone is wrong, and the body language is wrong too, the remaining thing which is words is just 7% of the whole deal. That is why many words spoken in anger, and without love end up ineffective because they are akin to foaming and grinding of teeth and which elicit a stiff-like-a-board response!

Foaming, Grinding, Or Stiff As A Board?

I pray for your relationship /marriage that every communication anomaly is removed in Jesus’ name! Use the video for REVIVE Day 14 and use it to pray!
