This afternoon when my husband woke up I told him that I was going to stop nagging him about something that I had been nagging him about recently. Although this is something that bothers me more than anything in our relationship I'm going to let the issue rest right now. I can't sincerely say that this is something that I will never bring up again in the future because it is something that sincerely hurts me but it's the only thing we have been disagreeing about lately and the only thing that I could reasonably compromise right now but I'm trying and try is all I can do. I hope that this may be something that I can just learn to let go now that I have actively told my husband that I will table this issue .. Hopefully I will be able to table it forever.
Count the number of "I"s in your above paragraph. Now...who can you turn those burdens over to? Who can provide this strength, the patience, the peace, the release of pain? I know you already know...LOL. Give it to Him. He's waiting. :)
I wish I genuinely knew how
Take it to Him daily...even when you are not feeling it. Daily, hourly obedience. Open yourself up...soften your heart...Commit to prayer daily. It will come.
Tell yourself you are going to do that. Not him. Then hand it over to Christ.
If it comes up again, he has something to say "you did not change".
And believe me, you do not have to tell him, especially if you really do it. He will recognize it.
