The Metamorphosis of Marriage
One thing about me is that I don’t have an antidote or sure fire formula on how a marriage can be great. But what I do know and have come to learn and understand is that the one that ordained marriage knows how to guide each couple through the process of getting through the metamorphosis (the process of transformation from an immature form to an adult form in two or more distinct stages) of becoming one. What a painful, yet beautiful process!
I've been married for 18 years and still learning and growing as a wife. That is where the title of this blog comes in, it speaks of my journey as a wife and a Christian. I used to think that years in a marriage equaled good experience and perhaps a place of expertise, however, just as we are growing in Christ, we are growing in life consistently. The unfinished part of us is the imperfect, sometimes frustrated, confused, feeling unwanted and taken for granted....we get it right sometimes and sometimes we get it wrong. As women we can live in our head way too long and allow our emotions of anxiety and fear get the best of us and puts us on a pattern that we often have to pause and reevaluate who are we outside of being a wife and mother, boss lady, church leader, etc. How can I get to her heart? How do I get her to realize that she's more than the role she performs or the title she wears? How can she consider herself without feeling guilty for putting her needs first? We are in an unfinished state going through the metamorphosis of life, marriage, parenthood but most of all personhood. And it's ok to not get it all right, but it is not ok to stop growing into who God created you to be from the beginning before marriage, motherhood, bosslady, sister, daughter etc. Let's grow together through this blog into the most beautiful form the world has ever seen!
What a painful, but Beautiful process!
