Are you wondering how to deal with the differences in your marriage? Acceptance is truly the crowning decision of the mature believer regarding the differences with one’s spouse. It means that you acknowledge the fact that you have these differences because you are two different people.
Does God have a role in your marriage? SCH Contributor and Pastor Steve Carr explains how to incorporate prayer and vulnerability between you and your spouse.
Trust is a fundamental key to the marital relationship God wants to build in your home. He wants you to love your spouse enough to trust that he or she will be faithful and honor the commitments of your marriage vows.
Can you turn your spouse into your best friend? SCH Contributor Pastor Steve Carr shares two more critical elements to help you reach a higher level of happiness in marriage.
Love and a desire for renewed friendship will always seek reconciliation. Examine your own heart as to where you have not been a good friend or have failed to be loving. Confess it to your spouse and ask forgiveness. If you want the friendship and romance to grow in your marriage, you must resolve the conflicts. If you desire to build friendship within your marriage relationship, sensitivity to your mate’s requests is fundamental. You must begin to listen to what your spouse is telling you concerning his or her needs and actively seek to respond in a loving way. You must possess the same heart and take the same action of loving reconciliation as Jesus did.
Without trust, a relationship will surely fall apart. SCH Contributor Pastor Steve Carr preaches the importance of true humility and repentance in restoring foundational truth in our relationships.
