Marriage Conflict-Start Somewhere

Push play, then crank your speakers..

Be angry, yet do not sin: do not let the sun go down upon your wrath.  Ephesians 4:26

From Study Bible:

 He teaches us how to bridle our anger in such a way that, even though our anger is fierce, yet it does not break out, but is bridled, and that it is without delay quenched before we sleep. And this is so that Satan may not take occasion to give us evil counsel. Let not the night come upon you in your anger, that is, make atonement quickly, for all matters.

Start Somewhere-By Toby Mac
Last night, everything was movin’ so fast
I could barely keep track
Oh, of my offenses or your defenses
In hindsight, I woulda, coulda, shoulda not gone there
But left without a word to spare
Was it your offenses or my defensiveness?

That’s got me thinkin’ that we’re never gonna get it right
I wanna straighten this before the sun goes down tonight
If I could only fight the bitterness I feel inside
This thing is eatin’ me alive

Well I’m right here
And you’re right there
And God knows we’ve got to start somewhere
Cause I’m messed up
And you’re broken
And those shots we fired are still smokin’

I’m tossin’ and turnin’ on the things I’d undo
As I wrestle with the painful truth
Oh, my sleep escapes me as guilt berates me
Exhausted, the memories are drawing so near
I can see it like a world premiere
When did my objective lose all objectiveness?

If I need you, and you need me
How can you turn your back and just leave me?
When I’m right here, and you’re right there
And God knows we’ve got to start somewhere

I said some things that I regret
And if I could, I’d take em back
If I could turn my words around
You wouldn’t hear a sound

But here I am, and there you are
The space between us is not so far
I’m reaching out my hand in love
Before the fading sun, forgive me for what I’ve done

    Amen Amy. We know of four Christian couples who divorced this year alone. Our marriages are worth guarding and protecting! Thank you for sharing on an important topic.
