Let Your Actions Speak for You

"You are what you do, not what you say you'll do." (Carl Gustav Jung)
A healthy relationship is one in which two partners are in because of what they give and not what they get. However, what keeps them together and makes the relationship vibrant and alive is what each gets from the relationship, not what they give. This is known as the paradox of relationships. So, the questions are: what is your spouse getting? What environment are you creating in your home? What energy are you emitting?

Note, I did not ask what are you getting? That is out of the realm of your full control, so why worry about that which you cannot control? Yours is to sow and continue sowing in faith. So, the question is, what are you giving?

What you give is your seed in your relationship. It is what, hopefully, germinates to create the energy, atmosphere in your home. That is all in your hands. It is absolutely within your realm of control. You might not be getting it right now. Don’t be discourage. Don’t give up. Stay at it. As sure as sure is, you are making a difference. There is a crack developing in the wall of the opposition. Your light is breaking forth. Things are changing in your favor. Your fruits are coming.

So, keep loving. Keep caring. Keep submitting. Keep serving. Keep hoping. Keep trusting. Keep your dreams alive. Keep the picture of the vision you desire for your marriage right in front of you. It is possible. You are possible. Ask questions. Seek clarity. Be at peace with the imperfections, knowing they are simply work in progress. The invisible hands are carving out the future of your dreams. It needs your peace today. As Ryan Lilly says, "Run after today, lest you run out of tomorrow." Your seeming imperfect today is the key to your tomorrow. So be at peace in your today, for in it are the combination keys for your tomorrow.

The imperfections are there for you. Not against you. Use them. Don’t let them use you. Don’t let them make you quick to criticize or dismissive. Rather, be grateful for what you have. Be grateful for who you are. Be grateful for where you are at. Be grateful for your spouse. Breathe in, breathe out. Enjoy the moment. It is all you have right now. Enjoy it, and it will give you its riches.
