Are  you someone who is never satisfied with anything your husband does. You always have to have your way and you find yourself picking fights over the smallest things? Just take a moment to think about it and see if this is you.

If you find that you are quarrelsome, go to the Father and surrender that area to him because it may be you aiding in the failure of your marriage. Remember that you are the SOLUTION to a problem. Constant dripping is a problem; it is a sign that there is a leak in the faucet.

It is God alone who can help you to be understanding. Ask him to show you how to be wise, understanding, and sensible when it comes to your marriage.

Affirmation of the day:

I am a gift to my spouse
