Irritated. Frustrated. Hurt. Those were the words in my mind as I grabbed my Bible and sat down to read.
All I could do was think about the argument I’d just had with my husband. So, I closed my Bible and decided to pray instead. Somehow, this is the thought that penetrated my stubborn heart; God doesn’t want me to be a “fix-him” wife. God wants me to be a “love-him” wife.
Trying to fix him leads to such frustration, especially since he’s not always the one that needs to change. As my heart started to shift to simply loving him, I began to see progress in our marriage. Do I still get frustrated and hurt? Of Course!
Overall, choosing to love my husband instead of trying to fix him is so much easier, and a lot more fun!
