One of the major lessons I have learnt in my very short time of being married is to keep watering your grass.
Keep being intentional about first, honoring God in your marriage and then second, loving and caring for your spouse without restrictions.
Yes! When they make you feel good and even when you feel like dropping hot coal on their head. Lol!
Marriage is sweet but it takes intentional contributions of both spouses. Marriage is divine and must be operated by divine principles.
God has a purpose for marriage, a bigger purpose that must be fulfilled, so you see why both spouses have a part to play.
I remember one of my written goals for this year is to intentionally take care of my husband, I mean I just want to honour God in my marriage no matter what and each time it looks like I’m straying, I remind myself of this goal.
Look, I am not saying I’m a perfect wife or I have a perfect marriage but I have chosen to be an intentional wife, it’s a decision I made and God has since then made sufficient grace available to me.
So, either my husband makes me feel good or not, I am responsible for my actions and committed to honouring God with them, and I believe consistently playing my part, in turn, leads to perfection because effort is being made.
However, I am very much aware that no two marriages are the same but as long as you keep watering your grass, you will not have to envy your neighbour’s lawn.
It’s important to note that the ultimate goal is that God should be glorified in your marriage and that requires honoring Him by putting in your quota.
Till your ground!
Water your grass!
Keep honoring God, above all!
May your marriage never stop being a pointer to Jesus. Amen.
