For Peace in Your Relationships, Try This Supernatural Secret

by | Jan 10, 2020 | Woman

As you know, my life begins this year as a new bride. And adjustment to married life has challenges.

Some of them are silly, others need work. For example, I don’t eat red meat and prefer free-range chicken or fish and veggies. My new husband, as amazing as he is, prefers meat and potatoes and doesn’t eat chicken.

Goodness gracious, how do we prepare meals? Well, in our first meal we served a huge helping of compromise. I fixed him a big salad with all kinds of fresh veggies, dried cranberries, organic grapes, fresh greens, tomatoes, pickled beets, Shiitake mushrooms, fresh cucumber and used my homemade avocado dressing. And guess what? He loved it.

We often have that for dinner. He also learned to drink kombucha (I applaud him for that). And we both love nuts of any kind as long as they’re raw.

And my side of compromise? I ate the taco salad he made. Yes, with ground beef … sigh! At least it was from grass-fed cows. And I’m learning to eat chili with meat.

It’s a process, but the journey is exciting just because we learned one super important thing: It’s not about us individually, it’s about us.

Similar to our relationship with Jesus. It’s all about give and take. We give Him our cares, and He receives them. We give Him our fear, and He pours His comfort. We lift our prayers, and He sends answers. We share our secrets, and He stores them in His love. We hand Him our worries, and He whispers reassurance. We give Him our anxiety, and He gives us peace in return.

How blessed we are to have Jesus dwell under the same roof of our heart. We live together in a relationship wrapped in love. {eoa}
