How many times have you told your husband or your wife that they need to make a change so that you can be happier/more satisfied/calmer etc.?
— Taken from Day 11: It’s All Their Fault (This post is part of Alisa DiLorenzo’s “Called to Love” Blog Tour which I am delighted to be a part of along with many other inspiring bloggers. To learn more and join us, CLICK HERE.)
When I started looking at what I could do this is what happened in my marriage.
- God showed me just how bad of a wife I was. He convicted me to change my bad behaviors and correct my sin patterns so that I could live a life that glorified Him.
- While I was allowing God to change me, I didn't have time to stand in His way. He also began to change my husband. It's almost a miracle when you start being a nicer person, just how much nicer your spouse can become. Now, I'm not talking ‘just to your face' nice, I'm talking genuine Christ-like love toward your husband.
- Our communication improved. Instead of looking at what each other was doing wrong, we began to hear what the other was saying. This also allowed us to meet the needs we are designed to meet in one another.
I really enjoyed reading this book. While a long-time wife and fan of their podcast, I do believe I gained even more perspective on marriage by reading this book.
Bestselling author Alisa DiLorenzo has written a new book about what it means to be Called to Love. Many call this book “inspiring” and “fabulous.” I call it a game-changer. You can grab a copy.
