Written by Murphy Toerner

Continued from page 1
God's goal is that we experience this "oneness" in marriage. However, "oneness" is not always acheived. Or once it is acheived, it is not always maintained. We hope thatrepparttar following exercise will be helpful to you. You can considerrepparttar 147576 questions yourself or perhaps you could discuss these with your spouse. Exercise: 1. On a scale of 1-10, how well do you accept your spouse? What would it take to improve your current level of acceptance? 2. On a scale of 1-10, how well do you understand your spouse? Is there one area in which you wish your spouse were more understanding of you? 3. Pray each day that God will show you ways to improve your level of acceptance of your spouse. Purpose to better acceptrepparttar 147577 ways that your spouse is unique (different from you). [Consider writing down your answers in a journal. Then, pray and ask God to help you grow in accepting your spouse. Ask God to give yourepparttar 147578 "grace" or "divine enablement" to understand your spouse better. Ask God to help you see your spouse with His (God's) eyes and heart. Ask God to solidifyrepparttar 147579 idea that your way of doing things is notrepparttar 147580 only way to do things.
