Marriage Trials, Quick Fixes, & Unmet Needs

Who Can Be Against Us?

I haven’t been on my site much this summer, but I haven’t stopped blogging!

Check out these posts from ACWM:

  • Want a Quick Fix For Marriage Trouble?: “She said her marriage was transformed in 30 days. All she did was commit to no complaining. She only voiced positive comments about her husband. Words of encouragement. Gratitude. Affirmation.
    And I wondered: How in the world did that work for her, and not for me?
    I’ve always been interested in marriage tips. So when I admitted I was struggling to find fulfillment at home, I knew some tools I could use.

 

  • When Needs Are Not Met In Marriage:  “”But my needs are not being met.”  I never thought I’d be one to use that phrase. And yet I reached a point in my marriage where I felt abandoned. From my perspective, my husband was not doing what I believed he should be doing for me.Then I learned a new concept. I wasn’t supposed to be going to my husband to meet my needs. Yes, he has a responsibility to me, but it’s not his job to make me feel secure and complete.  God showed me that husbands were not designed to take care of all their wife’s needs…”

 

  • Giving Yourself Grace When You Make Mistakes: ” hate making mistakes. I know, ‘hate’ is a really strong word. But messing up has negative consequences that I don’t like to deal with. In a previous post, I talked about why failure is actually a good thing.  Those are good tips to remember to keep your chin up and learn from past mistakes.But even when we understand what went wrong and how to avoid that mistake again, how do we actually move past it? How do we stop regretting our mistakes – is that even possible? And why are some mistakes harder to overlook than others? If God is not upset with me, if He’s not holding it against me, then why am I still distraught?

 

  • Who Can Be Against Us?:  “Have you ever felt like something was out to get you? Like you were opposed in everything you do? That was me this week. God reminded me that we are at war. Many women cringe at the idea that there is a battle raging around us. We don’t like conflict and confrontation. We don’t want any part of war. But it’s there, nonetheless.  We can pretend it doesn’t exist and go on with our life in hopes that it won’t reach our doorstep. But that’s not realistic – we are under attack and we need to stand strong to fight it.  Before we take action, we must identify the real enemy.

  1. Good to see you back here Jen. Yes funny that – HE/SHE MAKES ME (UN)HAPPY! No, happiness comes from within….! If my happiness was dependent on someone else ‘making’ me happy….Long will I be waiting for happiness to appear.
    You get what you give – so giving love to someone- increases your own loved feeling, therefor that elusive happiness can be yours. Don’t be stingy with your smiles and positieve utterances. Be genuine- be loving, be generous and ALL will be given unto you!
