We are taking time on our blog to delve into deep places of the soul. Relationships are a unique mirror that show us areas where we need to grow and seek God’s healing. May this week’s post be a prompt to look in that powerful mirror and invite God to be at work in you...
For the first decade of our marriage, we had many, many conflicts in the car as we were driving somewhere. I had a knack for slamming on the fake brakes and dramatically grabbing the dashboard. But apparently what was most annoying was my running commentary (I viewed them as helpful insights) on how we might 1) get there faster, 2) pass that person, 3) take a shortcut, 4) stop and squeeze in an errand to make things more efficient.
Driving became an increasingly stressful source of conflict.
