Marriage Is Work Pt. 2
No, there’s nothing wrong. Marriage is work and it only works when people are willing to roll up their sleeves and give it their best. If you want to succeed in marriage, you need to begin with a big dream in your heart for what you want to accomplish. Make sure it’s realistic, but don’t let it be too small. God is the God of big dreams. Then, once you have a big dream and some high expectations, commit yourself to working hard and sacrificing for as long as necessary to see your dreams come true. This also includes praying hard for God’s blessings and assistance.
Big dreams and hard work are the magic ingredients that create great marriages. Do you have a high expectations and a big dream for your marriage? Have you given up and lowered your standards because of previous disappointments? Are you giving your marriage your best and understand the work ethic and sacrifice that is a part of every great marriage?
I want you to succeed in marriage. Don’t give up. Dream again and talk and pray with your spouse until you have the same vision for your future. As you do, commit to God and each other to give your marriage your best. Expect difficulty and hard work. They aren’t your enemies. They are the inevitable path we all must travel on the way to our dream marriages. There are no exceptions and no “perfect soul mate” utopias. Just the promise of happiness for any good hearted, hard working couple willing to sweat their way to the promised land.
