My Marriage is Different

on Tuesday, 24 April 2018. Posted in Blog

‘My marriage is different’ is usually the common response we get from couples going through difficult situations. You will also hear things like – You won’t understand, you haven’t been in my shoes, how dare you judge me?

Stop! Please take a moment to listen; be open-minded and let’s see what this is all about. Why is it that we argue and refuse to learn basic principles or guidelines that can help our marriage, claiming that our temperaments and situations are different? Yet we devour books and learn basic principle about business without thinking of our temperament.

A good example is when learning how to drive:
No matter your temperament, education or strata in society; the basic principle of driving - clutch, brake, accelerator and steering doesn’t change.

We all are mandated to learn the basics and thereafter our temperament or education level determines the finesse we put into it.

For me, I like things fast; so I drive fast and I’m impatient with slow drivers. Now that’s my temperament showing up, it still doesn’t remove the fact that in all these I’m still utilizing the driving principles - Clutch, brake, accelerator and steering. If I accidently stop applying the basic principles of driving, accident is sure and death could occur.

This brings us back to marriage. Yes our temperaments and situations will affect the finesse of our marriage but the basic principle has never changed.

What are the basic principles of marriage?

  • Commitment: taking responsibility to stay the long haul and pay the price.
  • Communication: speaking daily and ensuring that the other understands the message you are passing across, while giving room for feedbacks (or as we call it in KMA ‘Verifying’).
  • Teamwork: Have written goals and expectations of where you both are going (vision) and the part each of you will play in accomplishing these goals (mission).
  • Forgiveness: this is very crucial in building an intimate relationship with your spouse. We should learn the habit of letting go of past hurt and letting God in.
  • Prayer: every marriage will encounter a storm and to survive the storm you need an anchor. This is where prayer comes in.

Don’t forget - EVERY MARRIAGE IS UNIQUELY DIFFERENTLY BUT THE PRINCIPLES THAT DRIVE IT ARE THE SAME.

Resting in His LOVE

on Tuesday, 24 October 2017.

What do you desire? A happily ever after, excellent children, successful career… name it it’s yours. We have been told that happiness stems from having all this and more.

 If this is true, why is it that some successful people go into drugs and sometimes commit suicide even when they have all these and much more?                    

This is simply because what we are really searching for is something to fill that void at the center of our being.

I’ve been there - Lord God, more money please, children, a great marriage please!!! Each answered prayer opened up new possibilities yet I was never completely happy or fulfilled..

Then I fell in love with Him. Falling in love with Him wasn’t so difficult; He has always had my back. As years went by, I realized that life situations still affected my joy. I will ask myself what’s happening, when things didn’t go my way. Does He still love me? What am I missing? Which actions do I need to perform to remain in God’s good book? The more I tried, the more I wondered what this salvation thing was all about.

One day I heard His voice say to me REST IN ME; REST IN MY LOVE. This was new to me! Rest? I began to come into His presence not necessarily to pray but to be still – there I found love so deep that no amount of wealth or unanswered prayers could shake me.

I began to realize that the important thing that feeds the core of man/woman is a relationship so deep and intimate with God his maker that nothing else seems to matter. This love is found in Jesus Christ and kept with the help of the Holy Spirit.

Now not only do I continually rest in His love but He has begun to bless me with all things.

I no longer fret over big or small situations, because I know that the DIVIDEND OF THIS INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP IS VICTORY ON ALL SIDES.

Love
