Embracing the Fruit of the Spirit within your marriage “Peace” Part 3

Embracing the Fruit of the Spirit within your marriage “Peace”

 

 

 

Peace brings you a sense of inner calmness and serene tranquility. Desiring peace within your marriage is a desirable aspiration. Your marriage is or should become one of your most prized relationships. The desire to achieve a harmonic balance is attractive. Life can become difficult and very complex.

 

It’s important to have a place where you both can retreat from life pressures, hectic schedules and or the constant demand upon your lives. Sometimes the two of you may want to sit back, relax and just “chill!” Working together you really can make it happen!

 

Is your marriage growing?

Is your marriage all that you want it to be? Are you growing closer together or farther apart?  Have you settled  for mediocrity?  When the two of you married was it  not because you wanted to build a  great relationship together?  Life is precious you don’t want to waste  it being unhappy all the time. If you have gotten off track get back on board! 

 

Marriage affords you the opportunity to get to know your spouse on a much deeper level. As you spend more time together you can become sensitive or insensitive to one another’s desires, wants and needs. It’s your choice? Think about it, you both can determine together what type of harmonious home environment you want to create. Or one or the other can simply dominate your household and make it miserable for one another?

 

Good marriages don’t just happen!

There is always room for improvement. Good marriages don’t just happen! Having a home that welcomes peace is relaxing and inviting. It also keeps you both much healthier. Having a peaceful abode does not mean that you have to compromise your values. It does mean that you must deal with situations as they arise rather that allow them to ferment. In other words please do not sweep things under the rug. When appropriate acknowledge that there is a problem.

 

No, you don’t always have to have an outright brawl…  How you treat one another matters. You can table deep discussions for a later agreed time when you both have had a little time to think things over. This way you can begin to more responsibly deal with any issues.  Confronting issues is not always easy but necessary. Don’t let the weeds of hostility, bitterness and anger begin to ravage and unravel your marriage. Keep in mind building a good marriage requires learning how to become considerate of one another’s feelings and emotions.

 

Building intimacy makes way for a healthier marriage

Time is precious so you do not want to spend the majority of it unhappy, mad, stressed or living on pins and needles. When either one of you has to walk around on eggshells it is not good! You want to learn how to become transparent with one another. This is how you create a healthy bond. You allow one another to see the “real you!” Feelings need to be validated but you can learn to talk about unpleasant issues in a healthier manner.  You do so at work or you would not be able to keep your job. Well, how important is your marriage? Good communication and respecting one another is what builds intimacy and welcomes trust.

 

Marriage is the ultimate partnership for a man and a woman to experience true “Oneness” in every way,  In a safe marriage your lovemaking is also enhanced because you can become transparent, open and responsive. The desire for peace in your marriage is an attainable realistic goal. When both husband and wife work together as a team to make their marriage a priority they can accomplish much.

 

Invite God into the center of your marriage and I assure you your marriage will flourish. After all you included Him in your vows, or did you? Peace is a part of the Fruit of the Spirit. Embracing your marriage vows helps immensely to welcome His peace. God can give you, “His peace that surpasses the understanding of man.” Philippians 4. Your vows will then become much more than mere words and your commitment to one another grows.

In building a healthy marriage together as a team you consciously elect to go through the tests and trials of life together. If and whenever necessary you seek wise godly counsel. Instead of situations or issues pulling you apart you face them together.  This will eventually result in you both becoming more confident in your marriage. Your countenance will even begin to reflect satisfaction and inner fulfillment. Together you strive to empower one another to become the best you!

 

The benefits of  embracing Fruit of the Spirit are apparent. Your love and joy grows.  You as a couple can also inspire others to respect and cherish their marriages as well. Marriage is what you make it. You both being on one accord realize that life is a precious journey filled with highs and lows. Your ever increasing commitment to one another is a priority and you welcome peace. Peace yields harmony and harmony yields togetherness.
