In MM 074 we talked about the #1 silent marriage killer: resentment. What we didn’t plan on was how God would use us to reveal how resentment was hurting another married couple and they didn’t know it. This is one of those “have to hear it to believe it” stories.
We’re kicking this episode off with a serious question… and by serious we mean totally ridiculous.
If you’re cold and jumping into bed, and yet there’s another person in bed… what’s the instant reaction?
Cuddle up. Right? Body heat is a great thing, but touching cold feet to the warm person? UHH no. Can we get an amen?
You might have tuned in to a previous episode where we hashed out exactly what resentment is and then how it looks in our marriage. We shared a few examples of our journey to realizing what resentment is and how it was literally, killing our marriage.
It’s a silent killer.
Tune in to this episode to hear a major God moment and how just through a time of prayer at church we really were able to help share the experiences of our own marriage to help another couple.
God showed up. It was refreshing to see and this story reminded us even more of the importance of getting plugged in… not just attending a church, but really investing your time and joining a small group to do life with some other couples.
Once you’ve tuned in, we’ve rounded up a few reflection questions from the episode:
How is resentment impacting your marriage?
How can you work to remove the resentment you may be feeling towards your spouse today?
When can you seek forgiveness for this resentment? and how?
There’s a pre-plugged in (to a church community) marriage and a post-plugged in marriage.. where are you at in this season of life?
Who is your life may need prayer that could help encourage their marriage?
