One of the most important relationship realities is that I am responsible for my own attitude. Attitude has to do with the way I choose to think about things. Two people were in a troubled marriage – one cursed, the other prayed. The difference always is attitude. Focus on how terrible the situation is and it will get worse. Focus on one positive thing and another will appear. In the darkest night of a troubled marriage, there is always a flickering light. Focus on the light and it will eventually flood the room. God wants to use your marriage in two ways. He wants to build the character of Christ in you, and He wants to use you to enrich the life of your spouse. Saying “Yes” to God is the best possible attitude.
