In the seventh year of our marriage my husband and I were contemplating divorce.We had reached a stage where we were finding it difficult to be civil to each other and all pretense of praying together or caring for each other had fallen by the wayside.
Proverbs 19:13 certainly applied to me: “A quarrelsome wife is like a constant dripping”.
“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
Resentment and gratitude cannot co-exist since resentment blocks the perception and experience of life as a gift.”1
We had lost sight of the fact that the marriage God had given us was an amazing gift.
My answer: “In my husband’s forgiveness of me and my forgiveness of him.”
