In our Handling Conflict in Marriage workshop we teach how a married couple can handle conflict in a bible-based respectful way which avoids damaging your marriage relationship.
There are so many things that we need to get done in this house. Many of them will cost quite a bit too! One thing is for sure, at the moment we can’t afford them all. It is also clear that some of the improvements I think are important to tackle are less important from Lainey’s perspective. Also some of her priorities I think we could do without. So what should we do? Argue until one or the other of us wears the other down? How about just going out and getting the jobs I see as most important done regardless of what Lainey thinks? Both of these routes are sure to damage our marriage. The first will destroy relationship, the latter will bring distrust and financial hardship as I commit scarce funds in the wrong areas. The best thing Lainey and I can do is to get on our knees and pray for God?s leading. After all He knows the end from the beginning. He also cares about us, how we live and the things we need. If anyone knows which improvements are important and how our financial future looks it is Him.

25 ?Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?  28 ‘And why do you worry about clothes’ See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Matthew 6.

As we seek God for direction and lay down our own agendas God leads us in His perfect peace.
