God wants you to be in a relationship where you are loved, honored, and respected, therefore it is good and right that you should have that. But you need to insist on it. That means flat out saying ‘no’ to relationships where you are not loved, honored, and respected. That may mean saying ‘no’ a lot, but it will leave you in a position to recognize and say ‘yes’ when the right thing comes along.thebridgechicago)
My accounting homework feels like art class using numbers and dollar signs. I can’t stand it.
Your relationship with God is totally unique. No one else is a Christian in the exact way that you are a Christian. That dynamic is a personal and sacred thing into which nobody else is invited.Unka Glen Fitzjerrell on episode 136 of the Say That Podcast
Often, people will say that a husband should only be respected if he “earns” it. This attitude is precisely the problem. A wife ought to respect her husband because he is her husband, just as he ought to love and honor her because she is his wife. Your husband might “deserve” it when you mock him, berate him, belittle him, and nag him, but you don’t marry someone in order to give them what they deserve. In marriage, you give them what you’ve promised them, even when they aren’t holding up their end of the bargain.
My dear husband,
This woman took the words out of my mouth and the thoughts out of my heart.
"I am bone of your bone,
flesh of your flesh,
Made up of your rib, Adam!
And once we meet,
like electrons I will be bound to your nucleus,
completely indivisible atom.”
