Ask God, Not Your Partner

Well our two year old made an interesting confession the other day. Yes, he walked in the room and said, “Mom, I’m not going to hit Harbor, our kitty, with my baseball bat.” and I thought, “Oh, very lovely for you to share that with me.” But it did get me thinking because sometimes we disclose things when we have a spirit of confession we don’t necessarily need to gloat. So we talk about things sometimes that in a married relationship that really don’t need to be talked about. If I’m having angry feelings, bitter, or self-pity, I don’t always have to burden you with that. I can ask God to begin to change my heart and let you just experience the effect of that. It’s one of the simple gifts of marriage.
