Today Hubby and I Celebrate our 7th Wedding Anniversary and what an amazing journey it has been so far! From purchasing our first home together, become first time parents, multiple career transitions, the passing of loved ones, overcoming and working through disagreements, watching God provide abundantly during a pandemic, overcoming illnesses, learning how to raise a toddler… and so so so much love, joy and laughter in the midst of it all… the growth has been unmatched and our marriage is stronger because of it all!
But I have to take a moment to share the real secrets behind our thriving marriage, something that so many people talk about and perhaps seldom actually rely on! Watch my Reflection video, and be sure to check out 7 biblical principles I live by as a wife in my marriage!
And as always…. be sure to share with someone who needs it!
7 Biblical Principles I live by in my Marriage:
1 Always check yourself first before expecting God to check your spouse (Matthew 7:1-3)
2 Listen more than you speak (James 1:19)
3 Only God can change your spouse (Proverbs 21:1)
4. Pray about everything… EVERYTHING (Philippians 4:6)
5 Withholding sex as strategy is not of God (1 Corinthians 7:4)
6 Communicate. Apologize. Forgive (James 5:16. Ephesians 4:31-32)
7 MY husband is not my enemy (Ephesians 6:12-13)
