Marriage is not a cookie cutter relationship. So bringing your marriage back from the dead will take some thought but here's what we know.
In order to get your marriage to show signs of life, you're going to need to immerse yourself into making yourself a better person first. It's never the other guy or gal that makes your situation better.
It starts with you.
This is one area that you can work on yourself and that will help you in ways that cannot even be fathomed yet. You know where and what you need to work on.
The mindset is what we like to call the heart set. The heart is located in the area of the belly where rivers of living water flow. It's also the very location that your spirit resides.
In order for a marriage to work, you need to be a team going in the same direction. IF you find your relationship going in different directions it's usually due to insecurities, not knowing how to be a team player, or just plain stubbornness.
It's said that an airplane takes off 95% of the time in the wrong direction. When the airplane gets in the air the pilot needs to change its course to get to the direction so that the destination will become a reality.5He who was seated on the throne said, I am making everything new! Then he said, Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true. #Revelation 21:5 #Relationship #GodsWord Click To Tweet
Progress Through Life Making Changes
Life can be confusing, tough, and even just tiresome. When a couple has trouble it's usually a time when you feel beaten and want to give up.
Do NOT give up!
This is the time you need to get deep into God and have him show you the direction you should go. You're only feeling the pressures of life because you're on the surface where all the waves are ready and willing to knock you around.
Getting deep with God will help you go deep into the water where there are no waves to thrash you about, wearing you down and causing you to want to give up.
It says in the book of Ezekiel, chapter 37 that there was a valley of dry bones. God was talking to Ezekiel and wanting him to prophesy to the bones. Read the story hereThen he said to me, ?Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ?Dry bones, hear the word of the?Lord! #Ezekiel 37:4 Click To Tweet
This is a lesson to us that we can speak life into our relationships. It's not just a one time thing either. This is a daily repetitious declaration.
Realize that it takes 2 to have a relationship but only 1 to keep it alive. You can keep that spark alive by speaking life into that relationship.
Relationship with God
Lastly, if you're not doing relationship with God, you will flounder around sooner or later. God is the master of relationship and he has been giving us a life time assignment. It's all about mastering relationship with him and our counterparts.
Trust that He can make your paths straight and know that He is good and will never do anything to harm you. It's in his nature! That is how you can begin the process of bringing your marriage back from the dead.
