In a marriage or not, dealing with stress is an inevitable part of life.
Whether obstacles get in the way, obligations begin piling up, tragedies befall you, or the pace of life is simply too fast, there will be those times when you feel like you cannot catch your breath. You're likely to shout, "Stop the world! I want to get off!" Remember that God is always with you, no matter what difficulties are being tossed your way.
One Bible Verse Marriage resource to remember is Colossians 3:15, the AMP version, provides you with words of wisdom the next time the pressure seems to be more than you can take. Listen to the bible and take this verse to heart: "And let the peace from Christ rule in your hearts to which as one body you were called. And be thankful."
Never take your partner in marriage for granted either. Together, you can withstand any storm, no matter how fierce and powerful.
Dealing with stress can have a negative impact on your relationship with your loved one.
When you are facing job stress of any kind, the loss of a job, a financial crisis, or a tragedy, the strain can wear you down and your heart may be filled with anger. Do not take it out on your spouse, Never let your temper get the best of you or batter your partner with frustration. Your husband or your wife should always be your safe haven in the midst of turmoil, brought to you by the grace of God. Remember to always let your words speak life. Compassion, patience, faith, and love should be shared with the person is on the daily journey of life with you.
You can also turn to other Bible verses on marriage when in need.
Try 1 Corinthians 13:4-8: Love is patient and kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
Finding our most needed Comfort in One Another
When a great burden of stress has been placed on your shoulders, your first instinct may be to withdraw and try to handle it on your own. Rather than be overwhelmed, turn to your partner. Find solace in nurturing your relationship and sharing your love in the bedroom as well. You will ease your mind.
Always Turn to God Without Fail as God is strong enough to carry all of your burdens.
Any time that the whirlwind of life seems to be going out of control, take a moment to give your thoughts to God. Let Him settle your mind and soothe your soul. Whether you're turning in for the night, rising in the morning, caught in a traffic jam, or riding the elevator, you can give yourself to God. In that moment, a sense of calm will be yours. The next time that stress hits you and threatens to overwhelm you, don't allow it to have any power over you. With God by your side, you can deal with any problem.
Sit down and list your blessings the next time stress is clouding your mind. When you find all of the good things brought in your life by the grace of God, it is much harder to be crushed by the bad.
