When we first got married I had incredibly high expectations of what our relationship and marriage was going to look like. It wasn’t too long after we said “I do” that I realized these were completely unrealistic and totally one sided. This ended up causing major issues within our marriage and we slowly began to drift apart.
James 4:1 says: What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you?
Going through this rough season, what stood out the most was our differences. So in the midst of my idol (the unrealistic expectations) being hooked, I started to pick apart all of our differences, trying to justify myself.
It’s amazing out God works. While my goal was to “prove a point”, God’s goal was to show me the beauty in these differences.
