Tuesday Truth (Marriage)

The word “try” can often be used as an excuse, but when something important to us comes up, we will then replace “try” with “I will”. No person is perfect, which means no marriage is perfect. Each marriage and every marriage has issues, but the difference between the ones that make it and the ones that don’t, use two key words…”WE WILL”. Choose today to make your spouse a priority. Remove “try” from your marriage vocabulary and replace it with “I will/we will”.

I will put God first.
I will put my husband second.
I will put my kids third.
I will wake up early.
I will serve my husband.
I will be the helpmate God designed me to be.
I will pray for my husband.
I will be strong.
I will be tender.
I will be compassionate.
I will be patient.
I will be reaffirming.
I will be encouraging.
I will be forgiving.
I will be positive.
I will be humble.
I will be submissive.
I will be organized.
I will be loving.
“I will” because I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!

Prayer:
Dear Lord, watch over our marriage. May the hurtful words be quickly forgotten and replaced with words of love and forgiveness, always. May the walls that have been built be destroyed in your name. Help couples to see no marriage is perfect, but with your help it can be close to it. Give us the strength to stay strong and to fight for one of the most important things you could ever give us, our marriage. And help us each to remove “try” from our lips and replace it with “I will”.
Amen
