MARRIAGE MYTH:

"GOD WANTS ME TO BE HAPPY" 
“But I believe God wants me to be happy in marriage and I’m not,” is a phrase I hear a lot. Most of the time it’s from a person that’s considering getting out of their marriage and they're looking for a reason. 
Understand this, I DO believe God wants you to be happy, but not to the point of checking out on your marriage just because you don't "feel" happy. The feelings of happiness in marriage comes and goes ... and you have to work to keep it going. You will not always be happy all of the time ... but real love doesn't check out on marriage when you don’t “feel” in happy or in love. 
The goal in marriage is not simply to get your spouse to say, "I do," ... the goal is to continue to LOVE, PURSUE and CHOOSE them everyday after the "I do's." That's how you always find happiness. 
Always choose love.

  1. I am a firm believer that love and happiness are choices. We can choose to be happy, we just have to change our focus.
