A few nights ago, my husband and I had an argument. No longer newlyweds, although still this side of seasoned, we argue less but still fall for many of the same prideful pitfalls.
As grievances mounted, I could no longer see my husband for the growing tower of resentments between us. Out of words, he went to bed and I stayed in the living room, soaking up the shadow of the tower.
I woke the next morning, heavy. As I opened my eyes, I realized I could not be genuinely excited about anything, not with that tower in the living room casting its shadow. Unable to see in the dark, I fumbled through parenting and laundry, phone calls and planning dinner. The minutes turned into hours as I justified every brick of bitterness I had laid.
More out of habit than desire, I opened my bible to read the chapter in Hebrews our pastor would be covering that coming Sunday.
“For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.” Hebrews 3:4 (NIV)
What had I just built in the middle of a marriage God had restored only a handful of years earlier?
Craving light and life, I bowed my head and knocked that tower down.
