Curve signs warn us. We do not see them with every curve on the highway, but when we do see them, they tell us that there are some serious curves ahead. We need this information to help us prepare for what lies ahead. Curves are not disasters. They are just part of the highway system. If we are aware, we make it past them without a problem. If we were not aware of them, they would definitely cause us serious issues.
Marriage is full of curves. Last year I did a blog series on “Destinations.” In short, the premise was that we are all on a ‘marriage highway’ and we all want an awesome marriage. To reach that destination, we have to navigate the highway. The marriage highway has curves. The curves are the normal things every marriage encounters. You will have financial issues. You will have times that you do not feel emotional love for your spouse. You will not always agree on everything. You will have to work on communication and your sex life and resolving conflict. These are all curves and being aware that everyone encounters them helps you prepare. Your awareness lets you embrace these curves and work through them together. That is what keeps curves from becoming disasters. The good news is that navigated curves help build awesome marriages.
Is your marriage on a curve today? WIll you let God navigate you through it? He wants to do that for you. Ask Him to join you today.
