God Uses Marriage to Shape Us

Have you ever felt your marriage was like two pieces of sandpaper coming together? Both spouses have rough edges and as we grow older together, slowly we smooth out all the rough edges. I have learned over the years what my husband's hot buttons are and how to avoid them. I have learned to criticize less and smile more. I have learned to choose my battles and I have learned to love and forgive more deeply than I ever thought I could.

Proverbs 27:17 says "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another."

My husband is the iron that God is using to shape me. God desires to shape me into a Godly woman - so if I fight against my husband - rather than being sharpened I will become bitter, angry, have slanderous thoughts and discontentment.

Is your marriage growing in oneness or slowly unraveling? My friend Kelly (pictured above) wrote a beautiful article about a time in her marriage when she longed to do something different than her husband and rather than whining and complaining to her husband, she went to God in serious prayer - and God rewarded her respectful behavior and answered her prayers in the midst of financial and parenting struggles. If your marriage is struggling and you wonder if God hears your prayers read Kelly's story of God's faithfulness in her marriage.

Walk with the King!

Kelly, I haven't known you "forever" but long enough to remember when you were expecting Kayley and how excited you were! From the moment you were a "Mommy" your whole heart has been in it and the love for your family shows so much! I knew much of the story you shared, but it was awesome to really see a more detailed description of how God worked it all out so perfectly! Your faithfulness and patience is a reflection of Christ and an encouragement to all! Thanks so much for taking the time to share! God provides!!!!
