We have all heard the saying that a happy wife means a happy life but do we really understand what that means. I don’t think that we honestly do..
None of us really want to out in the effort to find out what it means it even what it takes to make a happy spouse. I know for me it was a very hard thing to figure out. It cost many discouraging moments, many headaches. Too many long night of fighting and that’s just a few things not including what it’s done to my wife.
It’s funny that once I found out what I really had to do in order for this to happen it was super easy for me. It’s not something that I could do not is it something you can do. It’s only when we realize that, can we finally find the secret to the best marriage you can ever have.
Are you ready….. Do you really want to know…. Well here it is I will tell you….
You have to love her through Christ and you have to do as the scripture says “we must die to our selves.” I had give up my battle and start pursuing her as though I am pursuing Christ. By doing this we are allowing God to love her through us. I have found that with all the different things that I have tried to better my relationship were all pointless unless I’m doing it with Him in my sights. Christ is where we find out joy through any hardship and also any joy we have in the good times can be better through Him.
So in turn with this new in sight I find my self longing for her in ways that I never knew a man could do. There is points when the aching to be with her is so intense that it causes such an emotion I get extremely anxious. Its the best feelings I have ever had, it’s being a whole new meaning to loving someone more every day.
So let’s remember that first love we have had for Christ can be a daily feeling you can have toward your spouse. Whether Your a husband or a wife it applies both ways. With doing this we find our satisfaction within Christ and stop holding our spouse to standards they can never achieve.
So in turn the answer is to never stop relentlessly pursuing the love of Christ.
