What's your strategy to make your marriage great?

Alot of people expect their marriages/ relationships to ''just work'' but the truth of the matter is that sometimes they ''just dont''!, you need to invest in them; your time, money and resources.

The love seems to fizzle away over time and you find yourself longing for things to go back to when it all started, "The rosy days". Have you at some point asked these questions; ''What is happening to us'', ''I do not understand him/her'' you are wondering what has gone wrong. 

Life is dynamic and so is your marriage, it is also in constant change and you have to understand the mechanics of marriage to make it work.

A great marriage is when you click, you want to spend time together, you understand each other, you last fought 6 months ago ( yes!), you want to be seen with him/her, they make you proud, things are flowing and moving, you are happy! Is your marriage great yet? where are you now? 

Alot of factors contribute to changes in marriage; birth of children, loss of a job, reduced income, increased income, family setup changes (taking in relatives, in-laws), sickness, death of children,changes in age(aging,midlife crisis),there are numerous. It is important to adapt to changes in your marriage. How?
Marriage and Parenting Seminar Key Highlights with Dr. SM Chirisa
1. Your Attitude towards your spouse and marriage, you used to be caring and loving,you feel this distance between you and your spouse, conversations have changed, how and why did you develop the coldness?

2.Your Actions have changed (Before you would hug when you met but now its just a '''hie'' or ''Ndeipi'' type of greeting , you do not want to be seen or be associated with your spouse ...
3.Your conversations with your spouse have become short and generic, lack of intimacy, you stopped calling each other ? why?

In order to succeed in marriage, you have to understand that your marriage is not simply going to work because you are married; just because you have a strong desire for things to work is not enough. Marriage will work when you

1.Have a strategy to make your marriage great- a game plan to make things work.
2. Get the correct information about marriage, prepare for marriage. Moat people do more preparations for the lobola ceremony and the wedding rather than the marriage itself.What model are you using for your marriage? it is not a flawed one? What information on marriage are you exposed to?
3.Have an accountability partner (marriage mentor), every couple must have one, someone you respect and is able to keep you both inline. A marriage mentor who can offer good counsel. Who are you modeling your marriage after?
4. Have absolute agreed statements- , agree that even when things are bad no-one will cheat, no-one will look for a ''painkiller'', Even when you argue or disagree, ''my hand will not touch you'' what are your absolute statements in your marriage?

What are the boundaries you will both not cross?

Sometimes keeping yourself motivated is hard, ''zvinombonetsa'', because things sometimes get really tough; there is no money in the banks, there are long queues for this and that, it seems like there is so much pressure [ of which there is] , you become so discouraged. 

Sometimes you do get discouraged:

You might be in a situation right now and you dont see a way out, perhaps you are struggling with broken relationships continuously.. Look in the bible, people did become discouraged and even depressed . We see David [ The King, the same person who killed Goliath ] cry out in Psalm 42:3 (NKJV)''My tears have been my food day and night,While they continually say to me, “Where is your God?” vs 5 ''Why are you cast down, O my soul? 

And why are you disquieted within me?Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him

For the help of His countenance''.

Look at Job; the man of integrity, the man who did not curse God , the richest man in the East, but listen to him in Job 3 vs 3 (NKJV) ''May the day perish on which I was born,And the night in which it was said,‘A male child is conceived.’ Look at Elijah, despite him coming from a major victory, he says 1 Kings 19:4 (NKJV)'' But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a broom tree. And he prayed that he might die, and said, “It is enough! Now, Lord, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!” Look at Naomi ; Ruth 1:20 (NKJV)'' But she said to them, “Do not call me Naomi;[a] call me Mara, for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me''.
These are all words of demotivated man and women ...

How To Keep Yourself Motivated by Pastor Dr SM Chirisa
 Despite your previous and current victories, you can still become discouraged.

What is motivation? The word comes from two words motive and action (Dict). Motive is def as the reason of doing something.The word motivation / motivated also means stimulated, excited , reason to do something, inspired, keeping on fire.. You need to keep yourself motivated despite the feeling of tiredness ''ndaneta'' How do you keep the ginger , how do you keep the passion? 

It is not easy but you have to learn to keep yourself motivated.

1. You must have a focus on goals, what are your goals for life? what do you want to achieve? Have your own goals.
2. Your goals must be worthwhile, they must be clear , A worthwhile goal is one that makes you happier, keeps you passionate, makes you better, It improves your life!
3. You must think positive, despite this being hard, you must think positive!Whenever negative words creep up to your mind .. Just STOP IT!. Speak positive affirmations and confessions to yourself each day that you wake up, ''Today I am a success, I am a finisher, I am living healthier , I am more than a conqueror. Motivate yourself daily.
4.You must have self confidence, have self efficacy - Know that you are good at what you do
5. You must stay in a motivating environment. Some of the people you are hanging around are demotivating, peer pressure,What kind environment are you staying in?Be part of a environment and ministry that changes you for the better.
6.Stay Connected to God, keep him as a your center and your source.
7.You need to bounce back!Proverbs 24:16 (NKJV) ''For a righteous man may fall seven times And rise again,But the wicked shall fall by calamity''.Never stay down, dust yourself up and try again.Have the ability to bounce back despite all odds, ''I might be broke now, but I'll be back, I might be sick now but I'll be back.. Keep on going ...

Stay Motivated!
