It’s easy to become jaded in a spousal relationship. With time, you begin to forget why you felt attracted to your spouse in the first place. The rigors of daily existence take its toll, and this can be extremely unhealthy to your marriage. More fights happen, there is marital discord, and it can get thoroughly frustrating for both parties involved in the marriage. How do you get through this? It’s an easy answer. You think back to when you’d first met.
If you believe in God, you must also be aware that God created mates for all of us to honor the covenant relationship between Lord Jesus and mankind. So all of us has somebody like us, who can cater to all our needs. We need not look beyond this person. He/she has been created especially for us. Their personality attributes are such that complement ours. If you ever felt compatible with this person, this is the reason why. The person was tailor-made to be your other half, satisfy your desires and complete you. Isn’t this why your spouse is referred to as your significant other? Think about it.
We often get carried away with our marital frustrations and forget to give due appreciation to our husband/wife. It’s because we no longer see them through God’s eyes as we did when we first met. If we return to the practice of seeing them the way God intended them to be seen by us, we will realize their worth and how precious they are. We will fight less and give more of an effort into understanding the other person’s point of view and see how we can integrate it with ours for a healthy and fulfilling marriage. Look at your spouse through God’s eyes and your marital troubles will minimize, just you see.
