Vows > Emotions

By: Jenifer Metzger

God created humans with a wide variety of emotions. Women seem to have an even wider variety than some men. Within a 24 hour period, we can experience joy, love, sadness, pain, loneliness, anger, and many more. Our emotions are sometimes a wacky roller coaster.

When you are dealing with emotions in marriage, one moment we love and adore our husband, the next we can't stand to look at him let alone want to be with him. While this may feel normal or okay to us, it's doing some damage.

Trey and Lea of Stronger Marriage Workshops say this:
A great marriage is made up of two people who continually put their vows before their marriage.
Wedding vows > your emotions. #marriage #marriagemonday #wife #husband #emotions #weddingvows

Think for a moment of your vows. If you had the traditional wedding vows, they probably said "I take you for my lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and health, til death do us part." Even if your vows were not the traditional ones, I know for a fact they didn't say something like, "until you annoy me," or "until I am sick of you." No, our vows held promise. Promise of commitment and love through all the good and all the bad.

On the days, or even just the moments, you are feeling those negative emotions toward your husband, think of your vows, of your promise. When you are ready to give up and walk away, think of your vows. When you are experiencing the "worse," think of your vows. Remember that you made a promise to love him no matter.

Let your vows be greater than your emotions.
