I heard this on the radio recently and it really made me stop and think:
"In marriage your job is not to get your husband to love you more."
What? I was taken back for a moment. What do you mean it's not my job to do that?
"It's not your job to get him to love you more because there's already someone who loves you completely. You are not in need of any more love when God already loves you 100%. A wife's job IS, however, to SACRIFICE herself daily for her partner. If she does that without worry or outside motive related to what she deserves or doesn't deserve then a committed partner will display that back to her ten times over. That, my friends, is what we as humans really crave from our spouses."
As I said, I really had to think on that but, you know, I agree with it. If I am happy and content in my love relationship with my heavenly father then that love supersedes all. Spousal love requires more of a sacrificial love... giving up selfish needs and desires for the good of the other person. The times I have felt most loved... when Greg put me before his desires and his wants. Now if you would excuse me, I have some changes to make. Have a great day.
