He’s Just Not That Into to You: What Happened to the Marriage Chord?

angry couple

Marriages fail because of pure selfishness and stubbornness. If a person is not willing to forgive you pray for them with the love of God and a pure heart. It’s easy to see your mate’s faults but it’s hard as hell to accept that you have deficiencies, too.
The courts are flooded with the business of executing divorces. The day you vowed to accept, love, respect, cherish, provide and forsake others was not a game. You made a covenant with God and your spouse. The question is, did you really want to follow God’s instruction concerning marriage? Marriage is not about going through the motions; it needs to be taken seriously.
Love is free and accepting but devotion is loyalty and commitment. Marriage takes two committed people to make a decision to work things out no matter what! Don’t allow your hatred to cause you to destroy your covenant . Take inventory of your life and your own truths.
So many people destroy the gift that God has given them. When your spouse is sick and tired of the petty nonsense, lack of caring and commitment, they have reached a breaking point. There is absolutely no turning back. When it’s over; it is over. It’s not always about being right, holding grudges, or having a “I don’t give a damn” spirit. What you don’t cherish someone is waiting in the wings to scoop up what you have discarded: your spouse. I promise you once you come to your senses, you will realize the pain and lack of love you inflicted on your gift from God. God WILL bring it to your remembrance.
What really matters to you?
My prayer today is that couples who have reached the brink of falling out of love will take heed and recognize that your marriage is worth saving.

What’s Love Got to do With It? The True Meaning of Marriage

  1. Mom and Dad

****Disclaimer: I firmly believe in women having careers. I encourage it.

Marriage is a union between two people that biblically become one. It is a covenant between two people who confess their love in front of God, family, friends and each other.
Marriage will have its ups and downs but only those that are in love and are truly committed will survive. Love doesn’t allow you to intentionally hurt or say mean things to your spouse. That’s not of God. Anger only last for a moment because love prevails. You don’t focus on the negativity but see the beauty in your mate. Love carries you through the good AND bad times.
Your commitment to one another doesn’t allow strife to penetrate the marriage. It takes a strong Godly man, who is a leader, to keep his house in order because of His love for God, his wife, and children. The wife prays and uplifts her husband and has his back. She buffers situations; she runs her household in love. But, none of this can come to pass if the husband does not listen to counsel or seeks God for instruction. His love for God allows him to take pride in being the bread winner and he makes sure that his home is safe and secure.
“A man that finds a wife, finds a good thing AND finds favor in the Lord.”
In the 21st century, there are men who still find joy in taking care of their family and home.

What A Man? What A Mighty Good Man!!!!

Laughing black coupleIf a man loves you he is faithful! He cares about your wants and needs. He’s true to his word. He is a protector, provider, prayer partner, peacemaker and patient. A good man accepts you and your children and will love them as his own. He takes his family to church and he stands on his principles. He dries your tears when you are crying, holds your hand and assures you that he’s got your back! Do you know that man? If not, these are the characteristics you should look for in a good man.

I Know My Worth!!! What About You?

BeYourself

  • YOU are your most important asset! That means you don’t need any liabilities entering your life. Don’t allow anyone to drag you down!!! Remember that!!!
  • Holding on to a dead-in relationship is suicide. When it’s over, cut your losses and move on. Don’t continue to subject yourself to pain, heartache and misery. All you have to do is pack your things, load up the U-Haul, grab your purse and move to your new place where there is peace and take hold of your life. Don’t look back!!! Lot’s wife (Bible) looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. Your future is ahead of you not behind you!
  • Have you ever known people who are always negative? They are never happy about anything. They complain, complain, complain!!! You want to run when you see them coming! Think before you speak because it could work against you. The tongue can speak life or death. In other words, what we put out is what we get back. Never doubt the power you have inside of you. Speak positive things over yourself. Change your way of thinking and watch your life change for the better!

Just in Case…

 

Until God Opens the next door, you will praise Him in the hallway!!!

Until God Opens the next door, you will praise Him in the hallway!!!

When your circumstances look bleak, the situtation has gone on for a long period of time and everything points to hopelessness, always trust and believe that God STILL performs miracles.
He is working on your behalf everyday. He will strenghten you at your lowest point:

*bills are past due- he will send you a blessing or cancel the debt

*home is in forclosure-the Son of Man had nowhere to lay his head but He makes provisions for His children

*sickness and disease-he can touch you and make you whole

*wayward children-pray without ceasing and don’t give up; God
can make that child humble as a lamb

*marriage in crisis-he can restore it

*death of a loved one-he will give you peace

…and just in case God does not answer the way you want Him to know that he has something bigger, better and brighter for your future! Believe!!!

Gwen 2 years old (3)Today is a very special day for me. I am 50 years old! I want to thank God for being a healer, restorer of life, a friend in my darkest hours and my strong tower. Because of you, I am. Thank you for giving me the gift of life and allowing me to use my experiences to help others. Thanks to my family, friends, and FB family for the love you have shown me today; I feel very special because of you!

 

My testimony:

I want to help somebody to see the light today,

I want to lend a helping hand to show someone the way,

I want my life to be an example as I go

Cause I’ll never pass this way again…
