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.

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

Part 1

Marriage is the first time-honored foundational institution designed by God. It is the ultimate endearing relationship between man and woman sanctioned by God. Marriage is an emotional, spiritual, physically expressive holy union of two hearts joining together as one. Marriage bonds the couple together in love as committed life partners as their hearts are knitted together, and is intended to last a lifetime!

Keep God as the Center of your Marriage

With God as the center of your marriage it can become a marvelous adventurous endless circle. Your marriage is or will be whatever you make it together. Since we are all created uniquely different so are marriages. Marriage takes teamwork! It is important to know what God’s principles for marriage entail. Embracing the Fruit of His Spirit helps to produce healthier marriages. When spouses honor marriage vows they also honor God. This is why marriage is called “Holy Matrimony!”

What is the Fruit of the Spirit?

The Bible teaches us that: “The Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, faithfulness, goodness, gentleness & self control.” When you both embrace these principles you are inviting the presence of the Lord into your Marriage! The possibilities become limitless!

Although two separate individuals the potential for achieving “Oneness” in marriage should become a priority! Developing mutual respect and devotion toward one another is a plus. The spiritual aspect of marriage is too often neglected. Think about it for a moment you have made a commitment to your spouse and to God as well!

Love defined God’s way!

Love is often confused with lust. Know that there is a difference. Today many think that letting them do as they please or having whatever they want or telling them what they want to hear is love… Some have what I call “intoxicating affections.” This actually mimics love. There will initially be a strong desire to be with someone but the feelings dissipate over time, and they just don’t last.” This is why you cannot build a good strong marriage on just feelings or emotions. A great marriage in the making takes a lifetime. It will weather the storms of life and provide you with a committed trustworthy spouse.

In a God Centered Covenant Marriage your love continuously grows. It does not diminish.  To a degree you  become  inseparable.  Spiritually you grow as One. You are happy together and or apart.  Your care, concern, respect and companionship is refined and upgraded.  The way in which you express your love will vary. As you grow in love together you learn how to better freely express yourself to one another. You become less inhibited. Life becomes unexplainable in  good way…

Think hard and long before you say “I love you!”  Love is expressed by your actions not just in words. So it is important to become more cognizant of your thoughts, attitudes and actions. As you begin to truly embrace God’s love in your marriage and personal life you will see an amazing difference. God’s definition of love teaches us that; “Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered; it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in Truth. It always protects, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails!” I Corinthians 13.

True love is genuine and powerful. Love will motivate you to do what is right by your spouse. Once you have activated your Faith in God and implement His principles within your own life love can begin to abound. Love gives you hope. Hope motivates you to grow and increases your desire to want to improve yourself!

Benefits of welcoming love!

To welcome love in your marriage is a choice! Make it a priority to really get to know the likes and dislikes of your spouse. Surprise them by doing something that you know that they will really enjoy. When your spouse is happy you both benefit.

Of course there will be times that you do not agree. However, being unhappy and unfulfilled does not have to be the theme of your marriage. Seek to discover healthier ways to resolve any conflict. Nip disagreements in the bud whenever possible. Don’t go into denial. When there is an issue address it. Learn to appreciate one another. Make love deposits in one another. Be supportive with one another.

Trust and commitment are essential in welcoming love.

Wherever you are there is always room for improvement! Make it a goal to live a life of quality. When you truly love with godly love, you can also experience His joy!

There are marvelous benefits when you welcome and embrace the Fruit of the Spirit within your marriage.
