Count your blessings for more blessings

At the start of a year it is healthy to take a close look at your marriage or relationship.


Look at your strengths, weaknesses,opportunities and threats so that you can draw better options for the year for a fruitful, passionate and fulfilling relationship.

As you reflect on your relationship there is one thing you must necessarily do if you ever expected any good results for the New Year; count your blessings in your marriage or relationship.

Your difficult times Today marriages and relationships have become a battlefield with so many casualties; even in marriages which partners are expected to share their lives for life, only one in five works.Sharing your life, dreams, values and aspirations with someone who is uniquely different is difficult but remember that conflicts are part of life and all relationships.

All partners in relationships have their fair share of conflicts.

If Abraham whom God called a friend and David whom God called a man after His heart had conflicts, then you will have yours. Therefore, the fact that you have conflicts does not mean your relationship is bad; it means you are human and in a relationship!

Angels do not marry or get into relationships; imperfect human beings do and conflicts become part of all relationships or marriages. It is therefore impossible to stay in a relationship without conflicts.

You must therefore never quit your relationship because of the challenges you see. Instead see your challenges as neural agents; it is what you do with your conflicts that determines the health of your relationship.

If you handle your conflicts well your relationship grows and matures.

Therefore see the challenges as opportunities for growth as you resolve your conflicts and forgive each other. See them as trials by fire which purifies the gold in you.

If you never have problems in your marriage or relationship you will be less human and incapable of showing and receiving love. For this reason do not give up because of the challenges you face.

Instead count the challenges you face as blessings because they have contributed to make you what you are today.
