Married and living in Lagos? Don’t get scared just yet. I’m writing figuratively here.
Lagos is a metropolitan city in Nigeria known for its ever bustling activities any time is the day. It never sleeps. It’s also known for its traffic (imagine spending 4 to 6 hours on a journey that could be less than an hour with no traffic), of which most times, there’s nothing serious to show as the reason for the traffic. Lagos spells STRESS for as many who have businesses or go to work.
Heck, my post is not about Lagos, but about your marriage.
Does your marriage have the qualities of Lagos which has made it less desirable? As a couple you don’t have time for each other because you’re always on the move of bringing in the bacon, parental duties to keep up with, family responsibilities and all the things that are weighing you down.
Has your lifestyle drained your strength and you’re all shades of stressed because of the ‘busyness’ you have to keep up with?
I have just a piece of advice for you. DON’T LIVE IN LAGOS. Remember, this is not literal but figurative. Your marriage doesn’t have to be in that state where you’re always on the move heading no where significant in the marriage. You really don’t have to be weighed down by all you have to do that you lose touch with what a home should be like.
Cut yourself some slack and review your marriage. Put aside the busyness and the need to keep up to save your marriage from the mess it’s about becoming. Earlier this year, I made a post on the need to retreat, refuel and rekindle. You can catch up on it here. In some posts, I mentioned the need to have time for date nights to help your marriage. You don’t always have to be on the move. Relax and enjoy your marriage.
In the end, what you’re left with when all is said and done is what you’ve made of your home and marriage. This message is for all. Just take a chill pill. Save your marriage. It’s not worth having a Lagos kind of marriage.
Don’t forget, Jesus at the center makes the home godly and happy.
