Figuring It Out!
One of the joys of marriage, is being able to say to your spouse no matter what the problem is - "we'll figure it out."
We have done this many times - when we had sickness, job loss, or challenges with children.
A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. Ecclesiastes 4:12 (NLT)
But something that supersedes figuring it out, is both of us knowing that we don't have to figure anything out by ourselves. When we say, "we'll figure it out," we're really acknowledging that at this point in time we have no earthly solution, but with YOU there is a solution and it will show up; YOU will show it to us.
And you know what - HE always does. Sometimes it felt like we were flying by the seat of our pants, but God came through. Sometimes we got reassurance that there was a certain path we needed to take and God came through. Food has been provided, jobs came through, direction on how to deal with children, the right word to say in a conflict...it's all God.
It's good to have someone to figure things out with, it's even better to have God intertwined.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
Is God in the mix in your marriage?
