Daily irritants

Proverbs 16:32 Amplified Bible
He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, he who rules his [own] spirit than he who takes a city.

The great tragedies of life can undermine committed love, but so can minor frustrations. These daily irritants, when accumulated over time, may be even more threatening to a marriage than the catastrophic events that crash into our lives. And yes, there are times in every marriage when a husband and wife don’t like each other very much. There may be occasions when anger or disappointment takes the fun out of a relationship temporarily. Emotions are like that. They occasionally flatten out like an automobile tire with a nail in it. Riding on the rim is a pretty bumpy experience for everyone on board.
– Dr. James Dobson

Have you ever wished that you could change your spouse?  Or perhaps just a tiny little part of them.  Perhaps they have a habit that annoys you to the core of your being.  As you know by now, changing your spouse is impossible.  Thankfully your own spirit is within your power to control.  Ask the Lord to start the change within you today.
