Today is hubby’s and my 15th wedding anniversary. We love each other, and have fights. All couples do. If someone said they never fought with their husband or wife, I’d look at them like they’d lost their minds or like a third eye was coming out of their forehead. Wouldn’t that be a sight to see? I digress.

How many times do we get into a fight with God? One sided. He tells us something to do or what to watch out for and we argue that we know better. I bet that sounds familiar if you have children. I know it does for me. Aren’t you glad that God loves us more than anything in this world? Even when we mess up, argue, and don’t want to talk to Him, He’s still right there waiting for us.

His arms are open wide for us to fall back into. What would happen if we expressed some of this grace with our spouses when we don’t agree? Would it change the situation and maybe even defuse what’s the matter? God is always there for us…no matter what. Next time you have a disagreement with your husband or wife, stop and pray. It could save a lot of hurtful words and help more than you think it will.
