People ask us all the time, What's the secret to a happy marriage? We've been counseling and mentoring married couples for 15 years now and it always comes back to this simple truth. When couples come to us about their marriage relationship, we always ask them about their relationship with Jesus.
The truth is that Jesus transforms our lives. If we will allow Him to come into our lives and start a relationship with Him, He will begin to change things. I had a major problem with anger when Jamie and I first married. I would come home form work angry about something that happened and I would take my anger out on her. It got so bad that something had to be done.
I remember talking with her one evening and she told me that if things didn't change that she wanted us to separate. It really got my attention and I wanted to know how to get rid of the anger inside of me. We prayed together and asked the Holy Spirit to show us the root cause and then show us how to get it out and eliminate it.
The Holy Spirit showed us what to do and we did exactly what He said. Little by little, the Holy Spirit begin to change me and my anger evaporated. Looking back on it now years later, the solution seemed so obvious. But in the heat of it, Satan had blinded my eyes to the truth. As scripture states, you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free!
Jamie and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas praising the Lord of Lords and King of Kings! He is the Truth that sets us free
