Marriage Isn't A Fairy Tale

➵ Growing up I watched a lot of romantic movies. You could have called me a hopeless romantic. I have always had a great imagination and faith. My mind would regularly wonder into its own dream world.

When I got married, I thought it was going to be a fairytale, just like the movies. Now, don’t get me wrong. Marriage is amazing, awesome, wonderful and such a blessing, but it doesn’t mean it comes without challenges. You have two unique people with different personalities, interests and desires coming together as one. You have to choose to love, even when you don’t feel like it. You have to compromise, even when you want to be selfish and have your own way. You have to learn to be interested in some of the things they are, because they are passionate about them.

I am a talker, my husband is kind of quiet. I will randomly dance around the house at any given moment, but my husband is more reserved. I’m a dreamer, he’s more of a realist. We didn’t live together before we got married, so our eyes were opened to new things about each other. Some we may like and some we had to grow to like because they were apart of us.

Marriage isn’t some decision you make on a whim. You really do need God to be at the center of it all, if He is to be glorified. If He is not, it’s so easy for your marriage to crumble in sin. He’s the glue. He’s what binds you together.

I know the waiting may get long and tiring, but wait for Him to write your love story. When you do that, every time you look in your spouse’s eyes you can get reminded of the Lord God and His pick for you. Would you really want to send back a gift that was handpicked for you by the Almighty God?! ➵ 💕 #soulchaser
