Last time we talked about some important characteristics of God’s voice, that will help you distinguish when it’s Him who is speaking to you. But what if you aren’t hearing Him? What can you do to actually hear God’s voice more clearly?
Attitudes color everything. Attitudes develop usually without you realizing it. Some attitudes you brought to your marriage and some you developed through the ups and downs of your life together. Our sinful natures naturally breed attitudes that wound ourselves and others. But you can choose to develop healthier attitudes for a better marriage.
God speaks. That’s a central truth of Scripture, and for centuries those who have followed Him have born witness to that reality. But today more than ever we experience many competing voices. How can you know if what you hear is truly God’s voice?
The only people who don’t get triggered are those who are perfectly healed and completely mature. And neither you nor your spouse are there yet! So how do you handle triggers in your marriage? Is a fight or withdrawing inevitable? There must be a better way.
When you feel stuck and little seems to change, humans tend to fall into one of two ditches. Some people dig in and determine to “try harder.” Other people give up. And sometimes you go from one extreme to the other, and back again. So what really is your role? Are you hoping or doing for your breakthrough?
