Ways To Overcome Temptations And Save Your Marriage

Marriage is tested with a lot of trials and one of that is adultery, but the question is how to battle these times of trials in marriage? If you're married, you know the thing that I'm saying. In general, there are a lot of temptations, I will just tackle about being attracted to a someone given the fact that you are married. Hmmmm sounds familiar huh! Yes, it happens a lot and sometimes it's being misinterpreted. Feelings are deceiving, yes indeed. We need to base our judgment on what is our stand as Christians.

Let me share with you some things that can redirect you to the path where you should be. When you feel you're attracted to someone and you're almost there to give in, Try to pause for a while and,

1. Pray 
Ask guidance to the Lord to enlighten you on what to do and what God is trying to tell you, maybe you're misinterpreting the message regarding that person. 

2. Think out of the box
Ask yourself, what are the pros and cons if I will pursue this?
What will happen to my family if I give in to this?
Where will this leads?

3. Remember your Marriage Vows
What was that again? 
Till death do us part, for richer or poorer? right?
and most of all the verse that the officiating priest will read on the ceremony

So they are no longer two but one flesh.
Therefore what God has joined together, no human being must separate. Mark 10:3-9

Each of you, however, should love his wife as himself, and a wife should respect her husband. 
Ephesians 5:33

4. Remember the first moment that you fell in love with your husband or wife.
Yes those days that you first saw him or her, you feel in love, Reminiscence those times and fell in love again.

5. Think of the years that you've been together. 
Are you willing to throw it away for that person alone, those trials that you were able to overcome together? 

6. Remember the good side of your husband or wife.
Think the positive thoughts about your marriage and remember the good deeds that your husband or wife possess. 

7. Remember those happy days 
that you've shared with your husband/ wife and with your kids if you have. Those treasured moments with your family.

8. Be an Overcomer
Think that this is just a trial and you need to overcome it. 

I will leave this message for you to ponder

True love is not a bunch of feelings. It is a commitment that springs from God, the author of love. Contrary to how the world defines it, love is selfless and sacrificial. The best example of love is Jesus Christ who gave His love for mankind (CCC, 1823)

Best regards,

We will triumph with the help of God who will trample down all our foes.(Psalm 108:14)
