My husband was born with the ability to deal with my quirks, my failures, my flaws and still see the person he fell in love with (me), and treat me as such. We often talk about issues that rose up in our relationship early on. We saw them to be “simple disagreements” (after the fact), but we worked through them. Those same types of disagreements are often relationship deal breakers for many couples today. Why? Anything worth having, is worth fighting for (Not physically)!
We say that we love God, and we trust Him, yet we make decisions without consulting Him first. We call on Him when things have fallen apart (after the fact). We must live by His word so that we are able to come to Him and be confident He will hear us and respond to our needs (John 15:7). “Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God” (Philippians 4:6). It sounds silly, but it works. It’s not all about getting a man or a woman, it’s about everything. “In Him we live, move and have our being” (Act 17:28). Here’s a key point, whether It’s a relationship you’ve asked God for or a relationship you’ve gotten into all on your own, keep it before The Lord, pray for it as well as the person you’re involved with, for there is no perfect relationship and there will always be issues that arise, but God is able to help in any situation if we would only seek Him. (Psalms 34:14) “He will deliver us out of them all”
