The Storms Of Finances In Married Life
When the storms of life hit, we are often tempted to run for cover. Be they the interpersonal relationships we strive for and always seem to miss by…that much. Or it could be the storm that defines the depth of love between a man and a woman.
Or it might even be those terrible twisters know as the tornadoes of finance where you can’t tell from which direction the wind is blowing, you just know there’s destruction headed your way.
Try as we might, we can’t outrun all of the storms in our lives.
We can prepare as best we can, but mother nature makes the decision on the natural order of certain storms.
We can however perform a certain storm watch to ward off the pending doom of financial suffering and disaster while they are but mere dust storms on the horizon of our lives, especially in our marriages.
What is a marriage…it is security, stability, love and trust. What does that have to do with storms you ask?
Changes in the weather follows certain patterns, just like our lives, our marriages, our finances. Patterns are nothing more than plans, good or bad that develop into what what we weather. Patterns in our lives can be as devastating as tornadoes or as pleasant as a tropical storm that showers you with a gentle rain on the island of Guam. Been there … done that!
You become the storm tracker of your life when you can see the beginnings of financial failures blowing in, or relationships begin to waver and dissipate.
However, when the storm warnings continue indefinitely, we struggle to find encouragement. We need help. We need something that can cover us like insurance against all the storms we’ve been through all these years.
When the rain and the wind gather strength until they turn into what seems to be a hurricane, we find ourselves saying, “I can’t do this any longer,” the truth is this: we can’t, at least not alone. Come see our friends at Legendary You and discover the true meaning of relationships without having to be a storm chaser.
Except for our higher power to help us victoriously fight through the battles of life, storms will always be with us.
Many will undoubtedly end up being thunderstorms full of pitching and tossing while others will be not so violent, yet they will have the same effect, causing a disruption in our daily patterns.
Nothing can cause you to weather a storm better than being prepared for it. Especially when we feel overwhelmed and discouraged. Storms seem to crop up at the most in-opportune times in relationships, marriages and even business ventures.
Some of the people who read these words are fighting one heck of a tempest with the threat of losing a loved one in a long (or short) marriage, losing a home to foreclosure, or struggling to make that first million. The storm is often an unseen enemy from a human standpoint but the consequences can be overcome. How is this storm track affecting your life?
There is an incredible sense of peace that comes from learning how to rest and be secure in knowing that you can take care of your troubles. This does not mean that you abandon the fight and just give up trying. It means that you shift the focus of your effort from your selfish self to someone who can help you really help yourself. This is where the true victory is gained.
You have and will face many threatening storms.
As much as we long to see the golden rays of sunshine streaming down from above after our worst storm, our marriage and relationshipsare the greatest opportunity we have to tell others about a financial security with unending, unconditional love and forgiveness.
The storms you face today are directly related to the joy you will experience in the future.
