If you want to strengthen your relationship with your husband, take the time to encourage him. Be a support. Help him carry his load. He does need to learn to communicate more and to humble himself and ask for help, but your offering to help will be a start.
Encourage him for his strong points and try to overlook his faults. If you have trouble recognizing his strengths, ask Me to point them out to you. This positive approach will get far better results than nagging. If you're seeking Me and asking Me to help you love him as I do, with My love, I will cause you to see his good points and not to focus on the faults that bother you.
You're a good team, but you'd be an even better team if you spent more time loving Me and each other. You need to spend time together reading My word and talking about things I show you. This will draw you closer to each other and help you grow in Me together.
" Through the ups and downs...."
Every marriage is a work in progress. Every marriage has its ups and downs, but it is through those ups and downs that marriages are strengthened.
The most important thing is that you're good friends. Most marriages start in the heat of passion, but over time settle into the routine of day-to-day living. This is the normal course of events, but it can come as a disappointment
Some people think their marriage is a failure or they've "lost" something just because the initial passion is gone, but that is not necessarily the case. The problem is often that one or both mates have unrealistic expectations. It is not wise to compare your marriage to how marriages are portrayed in movies, books or with anyone else's marriage either, for that matter.
Just as every person created is unique, so is every marriage built.
The "style" of your love and relationship might change over the years, but real love will become even deeper and stronger through the difficulties you overcome together.
The Lord bless and keep your marriages now and always in Jesus name.
