I thought after marrying Mr. Dee, I would begin walking on water by virtue of the spiritual spike I would experience. I believed as the MAN OF THE HOUSE, he would MAKE me serve God more! I still laugh when I remember it.
Your spiritual health is your personal responsibility. At best your spouse can support you to serve God through good spiritual routines, however, how you grow in Christ depends on your personal heart condition.
Many people blame their spouses for experiencing a down turn in spirituality, yes sometimes, events in a difficult marriage can overwhelm you to the point that you cant pray and you feel far from God, but so also can the sweetness of a good marriage distract you from building a relationship with God! So, last last, na your hand e dey.
Matt 22:30 makes us understand that there is no marriage after this temporal life, however, how you live in that marriage has a part to play in determining your eternity.
So if you have been slacking, this is a time to tell yourself "my relationship with God is my personal responsibility". There are times as well, I feel like I cannot pray, it happens when life can overwhelm you, but stay in His presence, don't look at your spouse as the reason for that season, rather take yourself gradually and begin building momentum again.
If you are in this place right now, where you feel down spiritually in your marriage, first I will tell you that God has not left you! And He will NEVER leave you! So don't let the devil tell you that lie. I always encourage people to surrender themselves in worship because it has a way of putting Christ in focus and you just forget about yourself.
Dear spouse, your better half is not the assistant Holy Spirit, they can't grow you, they can only support you so Be responsible!
