This is the day that the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. I give God the glory for all of you, my readers and I pray that God will give you the grace to live in accordance with His words, Amen.
Today, we are discussing MARITAL FOUNDATION. A house that is not built on a solid foundation will eventually Collapse, so also is a marriage built not on a solid foundation. Is your marriage built on God’s principles (which is a solid foundation), or, is it built on Men’s principles which will eventually Collapse?
Most marriages fail because, they are not built on God’s foundation, instead, they are built on the wrong foundation, which I call ‘shallow foundation.’ Some women marry just for marriage sake. They don’t know what it takes to hold a marriage intact. Some marry because of money, forgetting the fact that marriage is a life time commitment. They destroy their marriages through their actions, interactions, and omissions.
“The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish tears hers down.”
This means, marriage is like a building which needs solid foundation to stand different weather, storms or conditions. A woman that loves and appreciates her husband must put in extra effort and time to keep her marriage happy.
Distance of location between husband and wife for a long period of time brings about temptations in marriage. We are all human and not stones, how can you stay away from your wife or husband for more than six or even two months? How are you coping with your sexual desire? These are facts that we should think about before making some decisions.
There are some Habits within us that we need to get rid of.
1. Anger. Anger destroys easily. It is liken to destroy what took years to build. Just a little “D” to anger becomes danger. It is always good to control your anger in order not to loss what you have struggled to build.
The bible says, “Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools” Ecclesiastes 7:9
2.Murmuring is another bad Habit that we women can’t do without. What you know your husband does not like, don’t do it! It kills LOVE. Most husbands prefer staying on the street than to come home to a nagging wife. Murmuring is a sign of disrespect; it is not a good way to give complaints. A woman that murmurs a lot gives room to her husband to stay out. Such woman in her husband’s eyes is insatiable, ungrateful and mannerless. These attributes are not good for woman.
We should know that Murmuring provokes anger.
1 Corinthians 10:10 says
“Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer”
I pray that God will lead us and give us the grace to become good wives.
if we are not prayerful together with our partners, it is time we start. There is a saying that says, “A family that prays together stays together.” It is advisable to pray along with your partner, because it helps resolves problems in the home. This is the best way to keep your marriage in the hands of God.
God bless you, and, have a great weekend with the fear of God.
