Marriage: I’m Learning


I’m learning that marriage will not be easy. I’m learning that it will be much more than ‘oohs’ and ‘aahhs’ and ‘I’m so in love’. I’m thankful to the Lord for preparing me and deepening my understanding.

I’m learning so much about myself! Goodness! Ok, I know I’m a great catch but I also see that I’m not perfect. We all know that we’re not perfect; but sometimes we think we’re pretty close. Ok, let me take ownership. I say ‘we’ but I really should say ‘I’. Just pray for me.  🙂

I’m learning that I have many strengths and many weaknesses, and I will definitely need the Lord to help me manage my weaknesses. I will need the Lord to keep me balanced and humbled. I’m in a serious relationship and I am thankful to God that our weaknesses are not the same. I can see how differences can make all the difference.

I’m not patient, but he is. Oh my goodness, he is so patient with me. I’m learning the importance of someone truly loving you- flaws and all. You know, our strengths make us appealing but our weaknesses can make us appalling. We must marry someone that loves our complete being.

I’m learning that it’s important to marry someone that will make an effective life partner. How do they handle disputes? Are they strong? Are they respectful? Are they responsible? And most importantly are they in relationship with the Lord?

I’m learning that it’s deeper than just feeling love and admiration for the person. Character, integrity, and their way of ‘handling’ you is extremely important. How do they handle themselves, their business, their family, or even strangers? The way they conduct themselves is something that we should definitely pay close attention to.

Well, as you can see I’m learning a lot about marriage. I can already see that being single is easier, while being married is more enjoyable. Give and take, I guess?

I’m learning.
