More than just an “I Do”
Updated: Sep 29, 2022
In the beginning of our relationship all of the ways that Jeremy was different from me was what I loved most! And now- I find myself getting mad that he is not exactly like me!!
How crazy is that?! I get mad at him for not acting/ parenting/ socializing/ eating/ sleeping/ etc EXACTLY LIKE ME!!
What I’ve had to work on is remembering that God brought us together not to force each other to become exactly like one another. But to sharpen each other and to smooth out one another’s rough edges.
I need to be a student of my husband. Instead of getting mad at the way he does something. With sincere interest I should ask “Wow honey, what made you think to do it that way?”
If we allow, we can each learn from each other and our intimacy will grow so much stronger.
This is one verse I had to commit to memory. I need a strong reminder that I am SO SO blessed and lucky to have the godly, strong husband that I have.
“It’s better to live alone in the desert than at home with a nagging, complaining wife.” Proverbs 21:19
