IS THIS AMBITION A BLESSING OR BURDEN TO YOUR MARRIAGE?
Conversation between a couple👥
Husband: Yes Honey
Wife: Please take care of yourself, monitor Janet to get the children ready on time before the school bus arrives. You know how busy I am and my next promotion is at stake.
Wife: You understand now. I have to get to work to tidy up my deliverables and prove to my colleagues that I am more capable of handling that new position. Baby, our status will change financially but my time…
Husband: So you know that we are far from each other now? Janet our househelp that is meant to be a support system, is now the mother of our children and chef. She takes care of everybody and everything. Honey, I work too.
Wife: Your type of work is prestigious though, but mine is envious. You understand now?
Husband: What about my emotional needs? I can’t gist with you any more. You return late, very tired, no attention for me or the children. It’s not that I don’t like you working, but we can work things out together in terms of setting our priority right, putting our family into consideration and managing the time well.
Wife: Hey hey, I’m running late already. Please let’s talk about this some other possible and convenient time.
Wife: Maybe over the weekend.
Wife: What about it?
Husband: You use your weekend to prove some points to your colleagues that you are sociable by hanging out with them, attending some functions. You told me that you are trying to fit into their complaints about the former person occupying that position you are eyeing.
Wife: Yea, but you understand…
Husband: What exactly do I understand? I can’t talk to you intimately again, our bedroom is dry and drab, our children can’t share with you, our extended family don’t get to see you at important family functions, all you say is you understand. You don’t understand either!
Wife: What is it? My job is my pride! My career is my pleasure. I enjoy what I do. I love to be called a workaholic👩💻. My head swells when I hear that. I love to compete with male colleagues, I must get that position. That new status is my target, ha ha ha a 🤣🤣🤣
Husband: Is this ambition a blessing to you or a burden on your marriage?
Many couples are in different and critical situations where either of the parties or both parties are nursing and pursuing ambition that is anti-marriage and it is a strategy of the devil to ruin their marriage.
Check your pursuit, plans, ambition, motives etc. Will it please God? Will it be a blessing to your family? Will it promote bonding or drifting? Please wear the thinking cap😇
DON’T COOPERATE WITH THE ENEMY OF YOUR MARRIAGE.
RATHER, COOPERATE WITH GOD AND YOUR PARTNER TO MAKE YOUR MARRIAGE WORK.
I pray for as many husbands and wives who are consciously or unconsciously considering or making moves which can disrupt and destroy their family harmony and unity, GOD WILL SHOW UP AND GIVE DIVINE DIRECTION IN JESUS NAME.
THANKS FOR READING AND SHARING.
