What's Going In And Coming Out Our Mouth?
There are two types of people that regularly go to the gym. The ones with muscle definition and tone and those that still have some fluff with no muscle definition.
As I pondered this very stark difference, I realized something. The ones who are "all in" are the ones who have what we all want.
They make the daily sacrifices not just in the gym, but in the kitchen.
They choose to stay clear from junk/worthless calorie intake and instead only put lean protein, fruit and vegetables in the body...they also drink water by the jug. These people make no excuses and by using self-control they, in turn, get a great payback.
Now, the comparison of what is coming out of our mouth. I couldn't help but think of marriage in this same way. The women (and men) who are "all in" and who are intentional, make no excuses, use self-control, and filter their thoughts before speaking... They have the marriage we all want, they get those results. It's not a matter of getting Mr. Right that makes this happen.
The most incredible man can be beat down by disrespect and dishonor so badly that he will begin to isolate himself and/or retaliate.
If you want strength in your marriage, make up your mind to the make daily sacrifices. As you do this unconditionally, your spouse will slowly start to soften and let down their guard.
