Walk in Unity

I am so thankful for my husband, and I am so glad God created the institution of marriage for us to be able to share life together.  I love him with all my heart and we have raised three awesome boys.  Life has been good.  God has definitely blessed us.

Marriage is not easy though.  There are times we have differing opinions.  It's in these times we have to decide whether we will fight each other or work through the differences.

I choose the latter.  It's so much better to work through things than let petty things divide us.  Satan knows the things that push our buttons and I feel he looks for every opportunity to speak little negative thoughts in our ears.  If not Satan, maybe it's just our own flesh that is conjuring up the conflict.  Regardless of the source, it's definitely not God.  

The point is, by staying in unity, we can accomplish so much more.   The Bible says in Matthew 18:19, "If two of you agree on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you."  

We can also hinder prayers by not walking with each other in understanding according to 1 Peter 3:7.  

Today if you are struggling to agree with your spouse, take the high road.   Set aside the negative feelings and start counting your blessings.  When you think of the positive things about your spouse instead of focusing on the negative, life will be a lot sweeter.
