SIX YEARS OF MARRIAGE ... WHAT HAVE I LEARNT?
Updated: Oct 3, 2019
I honestly can’t believe it‘s been six years already!
That also means it’s almost 6 years having the marriage ministry and its a privilege and an honour to share the things that God downloads into my heart concerning marriage.
I can honestly say that this past year has been a difficult one ... but God’s faithfulness forever reigns supreme. There’s nothing we go through that He doesn’t know about. And I am forever grateful for His love.
So what’s my take on 6 years of marriage so far?

In 2013 when I said I ᗪo ... I was saying I ᗪo to a lot of things. Things I was expecting and things that I didn’t expect. God has done so much work on us and in our marriage. I remember my Pastor preaching about hardships coming and the importance of us leaning on Christ more than ever when they do.
And I also remember being like: ᗯᕼy ᗯoᑌᒪᗪyoᑌᑭᖇeᗩᑕᕼᗩᗰeᔕᔕᗩge ᗩᗷoᑌt ᕼᗩᖇᗪᔕᕼiᑭᔕoᑎᗰy ᗯeᗪᗪiᑎg ᗪᗩy!!!
But I’m glad he did lol!
Because the truth is... this past year has definitely been the HARDEST year for us. Things we’d never had to deal with before all suddenly came rushing in like a flood ... but I’ve learnt that how we respond to situations when they arise can be the total difference between making or breaking a marriage. For me... I don’t know any other form of defence or weapon more effective than TᕼE ᗯOᖇᗪOᖴGOᗪ& TᕼE ᑭOᗯEᖇOᖴᑕᕼᖇIᔕT.
Our tongues are powerful and we must use them and declare what God has spoken over our marriages ... not conforming or accepting what is being dictated to us based on situations. God’s Word says that husbands should love their wives as Christ loves the Church (Which is a whole lot!) and it also says that wives should love and respect their husbands. That right there... when followed to the T... is the absolute definition of ᕼᗩᑭᑭiᒪy eᐯeᖇᗩᖴteᖇ. That’s God’s promise of Marriage to us. So anything contrary to that is something we all need to fight against. God is a God of His promise.
Not one syllable that leaves His lips returns empty or void... so it’s important to trust and rely on Him as we evolve in pursuit of what He’s called us to be and the marriages He’s set apart for us to have. We too must do our part. It takes more than loving on each other and posting pretty pics for the gram. It takes work. Hard graft. Sometimes even the ugly cry! But above all it takes relying on and trusting in Him and not in our own strength.
