How Marriage Can Change You As A Person
Marriage can and will change you as a person in a remarkable way.
WARNING: TRUTH BOMBS TO FOLLOW.
Married life is such an amazing thing! It challenges you in ways that you never thought imaginable and makes you see how you truly are as a person. If you don’t want to see yourself for who you really are (flaws and all) and develop the desire and the will to improve upon them DAILY, don’t get married! lol! It will reveal to you your true levels of patience, compassion, and commitment. And more than likely, it will show you that you are not as good a person as you think you are. (Which is always the case, because there’s always room for improvement. For all of us.)
You know that scripture that says that you should not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but with sober judgement… marriage will sober you up if you let it. lol! It’s seriously the greatest thing ever!
And I haven’t been married for long by any means and would never consider myself an expert in relationships and marriage, but I know that marriage works when you don’t focus on the flaws of your spouse, but on the development of yourself.
It’s not about falling in or out of love nor about how much you do that. It’s about choosing to love your spouse DAILY and acting in ways that show that you choose to love your spouse… In every THING… THROUGH every thing. Because love is not a feeling, love is a CHOICE.
I pray every day that God keeps his hand on our marriage and continues to develop us in ways that are inconceivable!
