Continued from Help, I’m In An Unevenly Yoked Marriage! (Part One).
What happens when you find yourself in an unevenly yoked relationship after you’ve said the big “I do?” What’s a wife to do in such a situation?
I can’t even begin to express how much turmoil and confusion you’ll bring into your soul and into your marriage by even the smallest form of comparison. The beginning of comparing your marriage to other marriages that seem to be so “godly”, or other men who appear to be such “mighty men of God” is also the best place for the enemy to get a foothold of your mind. Soon you become dissatisfied and even turned off by your man from looking at the grass on the other side. You might even start to believe that you’re not meant to be together. I mean obviously, you’re living in two different world, right? Then you feel stuck and the enemy has officially drawn you into a dark place of confusion. He’s successfully robbed you of your joy, and the potential beauty your marriage currently has, that you’ve become blind to, because you’re too busy seeing it for what it’s not, thanks to your faulty comparisons.
Everything is not what it seems. You have no idea what other couples are going though under the surface. Don’t let the smoke and lights of social media fool you. Prayerfully, they’re doing well, but all I’m saying is water your own grass. Proverbs 4:27 says, “Do not turn to the right nor to the left; Turn your foot from evil.” Focus dead ahead! No matter how disappointing it may seem sometimes, God has ordained your marriage and hasn’t set you up to fail. He can create good from the bad if we have patience, trust in him, and make the investments we need to in our own bank (house).Successful marriages prosper not because they’re perfect, but because two people have made the decision to fight for it. And put on your positive glasses. I’m sure there are things about him that you love. There’s a reason you married the man. Don’t forget about the man you married when you decided to spend your life together.
Refill your well
