Living for God | Pour Your Heart Out

Mr. Right and I aren’t really the talking sort of couple. What I mean is, we don’t sit down regularly (planned) to talk about deep things. It just sorta happens. Neither one of us likes to argue (though I get defensive and arguemenative pretty quickly) so if it’s not a big issue we both just let things go. I’d be lying if I said that’s how I thought we would be when we first got married.

I figured we would always discuss everything and always talk about deep stuff often. But now that we’be been married for almost 11 years, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Sometime during life you realize that not everything needs to be a issue, big or small, and that compromise (even that isn’t talked about) is good.

I am a people pleaser, I do not like confrontation (thus one of the reasons Mr. Right and I don’t fight much) and it makes me want to throw up to tell some people no. I don’t like to rock the boat. Whether it’s something that I want to do or don’t want to do. Or something that I do that people don’t agree with.

But over the years, I’ve realized that ultimately, it only matters what God thinks of my choices & actions. I have to live my life according to what I feel He is telling me, not according to what others are telling me. And I believe that if I choose to live my life the way God is leading me, then I will be the happiest human that I can be on this earth.

Will I never go through trials and heartache? No, those things strengthen you. I know this from actual experience too, I’m not just saying a cliche cause it sounds like the right thing to say. It’s true.

Every time Mr. Right and I end up having one of our “deep” conversation I always walk away amazed at how much we match on the deep stuff, how much we agree on. It makes me feel closer to him and it makes me feel closer to God, it fills me with thankfulness that He put me with the perfect man for me. Mr. Right truly makes me a better person, he makes me think outside of the box, outside of what other people say I should do or think, which leads me right back to this:

Live your life for God. It doesn’t matter if anyone else agrees with you.
