Even in the best of times, marriages and relationships take work. It is important to be aware of the condition of our relationships so we can have marriages that help us grow with God rather than cause stress and distance. Just like in a doctor’s check-up, we need to take the “temperature” of our spiritual health, especially when it comes to our faith. God has us in each other’s lives to fight together for a greater purpose, but when stress, hardship, and pain come it is easy to fight against rather than for each other. Fighting through bitterness and choosing faith, forgiveness, and family is what will help us grow to become who God’s calling us to be.
