Quoted

“Your husband will not meet 100 percent of your needs.

He probably won’t even meet 80 percent.

If you expect him to,

you’re going to become frustrated,

bitter,

resentful,

and angry.

God didn’t set up marriage to meet 100 percent of your needs!

Your beef isn’t with your husband;

it’s with the one who created marriage!

When you ask more of your marriage than God designed it to give,

you have only yourself to blame for your frustration.”

Gary Thomas, Sacred Influence (pg. 68)

Now, you should go back and read that quote again…and realize, like I did, that you can sub ‘any relationship’ for marriage and wow…you are likely the source of your own relational frustration!

(How much more fitting that I read this excerpt Valentine’s Day morning? …the day we focus so much on RELATIONSHIPS!)
