I know for me, the concept this week is a little hard to swallow, only because I know I need to work on this. When Joel and I finished it, the conclusion we came to is that this is one thing we both know, but fail to put into practice. We both went over a few instances that happened recently that we could relate this to.
I think it is so easy to find yourself looking at all the things that are frustrating or annoying about your spouse and really want them to change or fix it. I think we can very easily get so caught up in worrying about what they are doing wrong that we forget that we are not perfect either.
I am guilty. I see myself looking at all the things that I wish Joel would do different. I do get caught up in it so much that I forget that I need to be working on myself and asking God to help me. I loose focus on what I need to be doing, which is seeking God daily. Following Jesus and what He has called me to. Loving my husband, a sinner. Remembering that I am sinner too!
This week I am going to prayerful consider what character flaws might be contributing to the behavior I don’t like in my husband. I think there is so much to learn from this and something I have to work on for myself, my marriage, and my family! I think if we focus following Jesus, reading our bibles and trying to do as He has called us, everything else falls in place.
Have a good week and SEE YOU AT JINGLE JAM TONIGHT!
