God-Approved Marriage


The other week, someone shared this post from She is More on my Facebook news feed about The Husband List: 12 Non-Negotiables. I like this post very much, and I feel that it should be a guide for all single women out there. Marriage, in God's eyes, is a once-in-a-lifetime decision. It's important that it should be made with God's grace and utmost care.

Kristen Wolfe said in her blog, "No person will be perfect and grace is a beautiful thing that makes relationships flourish. That being said, this list for single ladies is to give a basic framework of character traits to look for or recognize whether or not there is desire for growth. Of course, use common sense when someone amazing walks in to your life but wasn’t exactly what you dreamed up. God surprises us, but always gives us what we need."

I can attest to this. Before I met my husband, I also did my ideal husband list and prayed for God to lead him to me. God did deliver, and He checked off everything in my list. Yet in all things here in this worldly life, everything changes. It doesn't mean that once God has brought you two together, it will all be happily ever after from there.

In most times, my husband and I are opposites. The first year of our marriage was more down than up. We struggled with adjusting to each other, It was difficult for us to align our goals. Our lives were not centered on serving each other.

It was not until we completely surrendered all to God that everything fell into place. God's grace turned our messy marriage around. He gave our marriage direction, and He inspired us to realize that challenges and temptations will always fall upon us, yet staying strong in God's love will always pull us through.

Hi Mitz! Dea here, got your link from when you posted at the WAHM group. :) You're so pretty!

Love this post. Thanks for sharing. My husband and I still have a long way to go spiritually, but we're working on it.
