A Soul Filled With God
The Message (MSG)
4 I’m asking God for one thing,
only one thing:
To live with him in his house
my whole life long.
I’ll contemplate his beauty;
I’ll study at his feet.
Personal worship is an absolute necessity for a strong marriage. It comes down to this: If I stop receiving from God, I start demanding from others. Instead of cherishing my spouse, I become aware of their shortcomings. I take out my frustrations with a less-than-perfect life and somehow blame them for my lack of fulfillment.
It’s simply not fair to ask your spouse to fulfill you. No one can. If you expect your spouse to be God for you, your spouse will fail every day and on every account. Only one can love you like God, with perfect, constantly steady, and giving love – and that is God himself.
The best thing you can do for your marriage is to fill your soul with God.
And thank God for the person he put you with because you know nobody else would put up with you.
