We just jumped over a massive hurdle in our fostering journey, and it took a lot of prayer, a lot of patience, and a lot of communicating.
And you know this is a big deal for us, especially as we are both pleasers! (Check out episode 26)
It is important to deal with your conflicts with your spouse, no matter how hard they are. Pretending they don’t exist only makes them worse. Or even pretending there is peace, when there clearly isn’t, doesn’t magically make peace appear.
Check out this episode to see how we overcame months of being on different pages about whether we should adopt our current foster child.
“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.”
Humility and patience are the major keys in those verses! And if all else fails – seek wise counsel, and still try to be humble and work towards keeping the unity of peace in your marriage and home!
