Putting a Marriage in it’s place
My advise to you all
By; My Grandmother Juanita Cosby
Your marriage is a wonderful present from God. Your immediate family is one of the greatest gifts ever given, except got the gift of Jesus Christ our savior.
So with this in mind give your marriage special attention, care and protection from anything that might cause it harm. Understanding this, you begin weaving a strong cord into your marriage, that cannot be easily broken. Turn to God to help you do that. Start by reading John 8:32.
You have a pertnership in marriage designed by God. When God created the heavens and the earth. He declared all was good, however when he created Adam something was still missing, God said it was not good for man to be alonefor there was no helper suitable for him, so he created Eve to be Adam’s partner in life. We are working together for one common goal. This is more inportant in a marriage than any other relationship in life.
Don’t isolate yourself from your spouse but join him or her in the journey of marriage. Note that ALL decisions you make should be made together with the best interest of the family at heart. NOTE that decisions are made to benefit the best interest of the whole family, not to fulfill your own selfish wants and desires. Discuss both the positive and the negative aspects of each situtation, throughly examing every consideration. Spend time in prayer asking God to lead you in your decisions before you follow through on any decision, Be sure it is right for the partnership. Read Philippians 4;6
Your marriage should be a priority in all things. (Read Genesis 2;24)
to break a marriage apart means you destroy a part of everybody involved in the family including your chirldren. so since your marriage is a treasure protect it with love. (Read Malachi 2;16)
When you feel a tug on your marriage from outside of your marriage let go of the rope that is tugging you and always put your “partner” family first. Don’t let your relationship become unbalanced because of demands, stress, time, or other factors.
Ask yourself “Would my children be happier without their “Daddy” or “Mother” or can they give up another new toy easier?”
Remember always your FAMILY is valueable in the sight of the Lord. Celebrate the blessings God gives you. Slow down and enjoy each moment with them while they are still with you. and always ask the question of yourself, “How can I make my mate happier than they are at this moment?” “Is there some burden I can lift from them?” And don’t ever speak to your mate in a way would would not want them to speak to you. (Read Ephesians Chapter5 and 6 pay close attention to 5;22 thru 33)
If I awoke tomarrow to find my mate died, What would I do????
How would I feel???
(Read the 13th chapter of 1st Cor. it is the love chapter of the bible,
Also read Psalm 27.)
