There are 3 Simple Keys to keeping a strong, healthy, and happy marriage.
With all the drama and pop culture surrounding marriage, it’s no wonder that so many Christian marriages are ending in divorce. But the reality is, it doesn’t need to be this way.
As a Christian wife, here is what this means to you. If you can comprehend the power of God within you to overcome any weapon the enemy gifts, you can create an entirely new marriage.
Now, I know that your husband has a duty too, but this trip to a happy marriage can start with you… if that’s what you want.
What 3 key actions are they?
1) Recognize that the devil sets you up to make you mad because he knows your weaknesses or areas of growth. As an example, if you do not like having sex, ask yourself why. Sex among other things often plays a big role in the marriage relationship. In the earlier years of our now twenty-year union, I could not fully enjoy sex due to the baggage of previous relationships.
But rather than wallowing in self-pity and blaming other guys for why I could not enjoy my husband in an intimate 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 elegance to grow. You want him to do the exact same for you, don’t you?
This doesn’t include abuse and serial adultery. If this is the case, I encourage you to seek help from a faith-based third-party such as a Pastor, counselor, or organization that specializes in these regions.
3) Make prayer a priority. I will be honest, for many years, (yes, as a Christian), I did not like praying. In actuality, I dreaded it because I felt like I was saying the same thing daily, yet getting no results.
Out of these 3 keys, I recommend first beginning your journey to a happier marriage with prayer. Being able to pray properly for your union isn’t complicated.
