Marriage can be tough. Really tough. But the Bible is an amazing resource to help you keep your marriage strong.
The Bible can be used for every area of our lives: including marriage. Check out the following Bible verses for your worst days in marriage.
When You Don’t Want to Forgive
We all mess up. It takes acknowledgement of that to forgive someone else: especially loved ones.
If you’re struggling to forgive, start by praying for your spouse. When Jesus was on the cross, He prayed for his murderers and accusers for God to forgive them.
Forgiveness is mostly for you. Unforgiveness can easily lead to bitterness. Plus, in marriage you or your spouse are bound to mess up.
None of us are perfect and we all mess up. Forgiving one another needs to be something we do on a daily basis.
Doing so will prevent us from harboring unforgiveness which can lead to not only bitterness, but also a lack of love. Which leads to my next point.
When You Want to Don’t Want to Love Your Spouse
When you’re hurt or annoyed by your spouse, it can be hard to show love for them. But God commands us to love each other. In spite of our faults, and hurts.
It’s important to show love. Loving each other in spite of our faults will grow you to another level as a christian and a spouse. Which leads to my next point: when your spouse is wrong about something.
When Your Spouse is Wrong
For me, if I feel my spouse is wrong about something and they dont agree, instead of arguing I go pray. The Lord can bring peace to any situation. Prayer works.
Doing this brings peace to me as well that the situation is in God’s hands. It also helps me from being so angry.
And after you pray for your spouse, show them love. Cook dinner, help them throughout the day. Be good to them still, which will not only shower on guilt but get them thinking about the disagreement. As the next verse explains,
Marriage can be hard, but the Bible provides instructions for your worst days in marriage.
Study these verses, and do what it says and it could help you and your marriage grow better. So study these verses, pray them over you and your spouse. For more verses for wives to know check out this post.
