As opposed to the battle field
where the only winners are division and discord.

Success In Marriage Inspiration
On Mutual ConflictReflections

“Oh, wow, that sure sounds nice but it sure ain’t easy either!”  Correct.  It is not easy.

Just ask any good, quality athletic coach: there always a price to that needs to be paid for victory.  Always.

And it’s certainly no different in the marriage relationship.  While praying and seeking the Lord for success in marriage…

Conflicts will raise their awfully ugly and not-so-ugly heads yet our goal should be to be win together as a unit. You got that, right?  As a unit.

We should not slide into, promote, or otherwise seek to gain “victory” at the expense of such marriage-saving and God-honoring goals as…

Unity,
Support,
And encouragement.

We desire  to win in love, not in hollow victories.
We desire to win in love, not by handing out hurtful defeats.
We desire to win in love because winning in love is a critical love factor as we strive for success in marriage.

Naturally, we do this with…

The Lord’s help,
The Lord’s guidance,
And for the Lord’s honor…

But that’s the goal: winning in the right way.

Yes, success in marriage means…

“Choosing to have mutual conflict
become the playing field where we celebrate victory…

As opposed to the battle field
where the only winners are division and discord.”
