Proverbs 15:15 “All the days of the afflicted are evil; but he that is a merry heart hath a continual feast."

So often in the marriage relationship both the husband and the wife forget the happiness that brought them together. The challenges of life seem to take control and both find themselves saying and doing things that inflict pain on the other. When this occurs, the happiness in the marriage is threaten and choices are made that can influence the end result of the marriage relationship. Both the husband and the wife must remember that they can choose to be happy or sad, thus there is always the opportunity to be one with: “a merry heart that hath a continual feast”. Happiness is possible throughout the marriage; one must remember that happiness is a choice.

 

 

Proverbs 15:22 “Without counsel purposes (plans go awry) are disappointed; but in the multitude of counselors they are established."

Communication is at the very soul of the marriage relationship and so often this is a forgotten virtue that is needed for a strong and vibrant marriage. Two individuals come together with different thoughts and ways of doing things and thus, become “one” and sometimes the independent thinking of both dominates the relationship. If a marriage is to be what God would have it to be, there must be a meeting of the minds. Both the husband and the wife must realize that they are a “team” and a “team” is most successful when each member recognizes they need the input and involvement of other members in order to accomplish the identified goal. Thus, communication collectively should be at the forefront of the marriage relationship, thereby the best plans are: “established in the multitude of counselors”. Work together as the team for the good of your marriage and God will bless your effort.

 

 

Matthew 7:12 “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them…”

Everyone wants to be appreciated and loved for who they are, yet many times what is forgotten is that “love and appreciation” is a two-way street. If you want to receive the “love and appreciation” of your spouse – remember you must be willing to show and demonstrate the same in order to receive. If you want it, you’ve got to give it!

 

 

James 2:17: “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone."

If a marriage that is in trouble is to be renewed and transformed to its original state, it will require a concerted effort on the part of both spouses. Just thinking that things will get better on their own without any “work”, is like having faith that: “is dead, being alone”. Be willing to put in the time and energy to reestablish the love and commitment you once had. Pray to God asking Him to bless your efforts to be the husband and wife you were meant to be.
