In your relationship, you and your partner both need to be heard and understood. One key to strengthening your relationship is allowing your significant other to express their thoughts without nagging them or being pushy. At the end of the day, the two of you don’t have to agree with each other on everything—you just need to listen.
God in His great love has given you the ability to choose. That is His gift to you. Yes, there may be many choices for a spouse, but God knows who the best person is for you. He will tell you when to take action, and He will lead you just as He led my husband and me. We grew up on different continents and spoke different languages, but God still led us to one another.
When you feel yourself getting irritated with your partner, seek to encounter the love of God, because as you do, you will experience true growth. You will be healed and find your true identity, and you will discover He has given you a better story than you expected.
