Last night at the Young Married Small group my hubby and I host - we discussed conflict in marriage.
We looked at the passage in James that says to 'count it all joy' and a light went on for me. I realized I don't and I'm not sure I ever have- counted it joy!?
I realized my entire focus whenever I'm in conflict is to get out of conflict - to force a resolution. In the midst of it I think of NOTHING else!
As believers the path to maturity is many times through difficult experiences - conflict!
Who wants conflict? Not me!
With God's help I'm going to pray for the foresight to SEE Him waiting at the end of the problem knowing if I honor Him in the journey it leads to greater maturity!
A new perspective!
