We are more than conquerors


In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. (Romans 8:37 NIV)

Have you ever faced challenges in your marriage that seem impossible to overcome at times?  Do you often times think that trials and tribulations shouldn't be this hard? Does your marriage seem at times so hard?  If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions then guess what?  You are not alone!!! 

Marriage was never meant to be easy, but to help us grow into the men and women God created us to be in this life. We must grow together with our spouses and grow separately as well.  Did you ever wonder why God would send you a spouse that could some times bring out a side of you that you thought was long gone? 
Your spouse is used as a mirror by Jesus to reveal to you things to help you become the men and women He knows you are. 

It's a truth which many of us do not want to hear because we are forced to face a reality that we are always going to be improving in our marriages. As hard as those truths may be or even sound, our trials and tribulations in this life have already been won by Jesus Christ on the cross. You are growing as a person and in Christ, and that growing can cause some pain. 
You and I are more than conquerors in Jesus Christ. 
Your marriage will overcome anything it is facing because you have Jesus on your side, no fear shall overcome you or your spouse. The battle is won, and it is continuously won on our knees.  You are a conqueror!

 Jesus, 
Thank you for my mirror because I get to see where I need to improve. Although marriage is tough, I know with You by my side, my marriage can and will overcome anything. Thank you for the guidance of Your Word and of Your listening ear. I love you. 

For His Glory,
Liz
