“Giving of ourselves first to our spouse 100% may be unheard of in today’s culture BUT in order to defy that culture we must create God’s Culture by allowing God to teach us to die to self. Walking in unconditional love towards our spouse begins by allowing the love of Christ to lead. It may not seem fair, it may feel like a sandpaper scream, and there may be a justified right, BUT walking in unconditional love towards our spouse creates a level of strength and trust in a marriage that when fear, intimidation, resentment, bitterness, and unforgiveness come knocking on the heart’s door entrance will NOT be permitted. It’s called guarding what you have been gifted. Your spouse is a gift to you from God – someone to respect, to love, to cherish. A gift given to create character and to teach us how to love the way Christ loves us. Aren’t there times when we don’t deserve God’s grace, mercy, or love; but He never denies Himself to us.” ~ Jennifer Goodson Copyright © 2014.
