Keeping Your Marriage Strong through the Storms
When I thought about writing on the topic of keeping your marriage strong during trials, I thought, “Yeah, that has my name written ALL. OVER. IT!
My man and I will be celebrating 15 years of marriage next month. Awe, doesn’t that sound wonderful in today’s society?
Well, here’s the reality of our soon to be 15 years of wedded bliss…
Year one of our marriage was absolutely fabulous! 🙂
From then on out we have lived in a constant state of trials. In fact, I think ‘trial’ is a regular member of our household. And he never wants to leave! 🙂
At one point in our lives we moved 4 times in 18 months. These were not fun and exciting moves, by the way. They were depressing and exhausting! They left me wondering where God was in all of this. They left me questioning my faith. They left me with fear of the unknown. And they left me feeling more like I worked at a moving company rather than feeling like my husband’s wife!
And one day I told him just that.
With tears falling down my face, I said to my man, “I don’t feel like your wife anymore. I feel like the housekeeper going from one home to the next and cleaning and packing and cleaning and unpacking. I’m exhausted and worn-out and I feel like our marriage is drowning in all of these storms.”
