I did it, again. Me and my mouth! I had to reread “This Untamed Member” and James 1:19 from the Bible. I got in an argument with my husband. My words were not upbuilding nor fulfilling. I lost my focus. It’s so easy to get off track. I do not always say or do the right thing. I get caught up in myself. I retaliate back thinking I’m justified, but in hindsight I am hurting myself and my husband. We came into the union as one. We are either going to work in unity or destroy each other through our words and actions.
I pray often for God to help me bridle my tongue. Sheesh, it can be so dangerous.
We were brought together for a reason. God did not make a mistake by allowing us to unite. It’s so much we learn from each other for our marriage; and to help those who go through the same thing. Our trials are just not for ourselves. I’m not ashamed to say, “I do not have a perfect marriage, but I have the perfect mate”. I have to do MY part in making sure MY actions are acceptable before God and MY husband. I am HELD accountable for how I respond and react.
We are designed for greatness, even through our “rough patches”.
