I want to share a lesson I learned recently, not a funny journey I may say, but one that really make a huge difference in my marriage: The lesson about Mercy. I was sad and resentful, also angry with my husband, by the repeated times in which he tends to ignore my needs, ideas, etc, blah, blah, you know how that is if you are married. So I found myself, staring at nothing in the window, crying out a lot for His mercy... the one the bible says is new every morning? Where was my daily measure of mercy? I wanted to know... And the answer pop in my head: You have it...things could be worse. I go like: What? so I have to be happy and grateful because it could be worse? (I have to admit: 1-I was full of angry and completely mad at my husband; 2- Not in the mood to accept God's truth that is always...you know: truth...) so I stop praying and talking to Him at the moment and decide to think about something else meanwhile I got ready (in my heart) for something like that. Funny God... I turned on the Tv, just to make my best effort to avoid thinking of His truth.
Couldn't achieve it, there was this Sandra Bullock movie I never saw before (don't ask me how come, I'm a huge Sandra Bullok's fan I really didn't see this particular movie before "premonition") The movie is about her having a premonition of her husband dying in a car accident...she goes forward and back in time till she fix her marriage relation.ship. A priest told her that maybe she won't be able to change destiny or...fate, but she can do things better so it all ends worthwhile, meaningfully, you know what I mean... I said: ok, ok, ok God isn't gonna allow me to avoid thinking of His truth, so I get it...it could be worse.
But it wasn't just that...I started a journey, studying about His mercy, and about idolatry, cuz the reason why I was mad, is because I, myself, sat my husband into a throne that exclusively belongs to HIM, to GOD. Then I learned, that his will, and His kingdom are far more important than myself, and that doesn't mean that He doesn't care about me. The complete opposite: He cares so much about me, my family, my husband, and everything, that He design marriage to accomplish the growing and to mature spiritually every step of the marriage way.
I started praying, fasting and sharing my experience positively, and it started to bear abundant fruit, or miracles as I believe...my husband is a better man, not that the Lord changes him, but that He, the Lord, changed me, and it makes a whole difference, and yes! The Lord is immensely merciful...ALELUYA!
And here's a set I made about things I learnt.. hope you understand it and let me know your opinions about it:
