The age-old “grass is greener on the other side” is ever prevalent. It’s funny how it always seems like everyone else’s relationship is so much better than your own. You might look to your side and notice the special way that another couple looks at each other, or the way they go on about one another.
Sooner or later if you look close enough you’ll find that those relationships are facing similar struggles if not worse ones than you are. What can we learn from this? No one’s life is perfect of course…no one has a trouble-free relationship.
The difference is that there are those that pursue a solution versus those that toss in the towel prior to finding that one thing that will make the difference. It’s never easy to give in and say, I can’t take it anymore. But sometimes it’s even harder to go the distance and seek out someone that can help.
Why is it that we struggle with talking about our issues? Shouldn’t we want to do anything we can in order to resolve those things that are so huge in our lives? Being proud only hinders your progress.
When will we realize that our spouses are not the enemy but rather that we are being used against one another? When we realize the issues at hand we have to consider who benefits from the turbulence in our relationships.
I want to encourage you today to be ever vigilant. Be clear minded and don’t let the darkness invade your light but consider yourself blessed when you are attacked. Yes, I said blessed! Attacks come upon those that are heading down the right path, make sure not to let the darkness run you off.
Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
1 Peter 5:8
