My mate should always be there for me, to help me meet all my needs. That’s why we got married – to be help-mates.
You married a human being; these types are at times unpredictable and unhelpful. Yet, with the proper expectations your marriage can be a very enjoyable experience. Your mate can be a source of great strength, but never the source of your strength.
My mate should understand and empathize with most everything that is important to me. If they really love me, this shouldn’t be a problem. The longer we are married the less we will have to explain things to each other.
As terribly inconvenient as it is, the fact of the matter is that your mate cannot read your mind. What is obvious to you is not always obvious to them – even if you have been married a long time.
FACTS AND FALLACIES OF INTIMACY: PART 2 — WHOSE FAULT IS IT - MINE OR YOURS? THE 'HOT POTATO' OF BLAME IN YOUR MARRIAGE
Everything that goes wrong in our marriage is ALL your fault (or – ALL my fault).
When things go wrong in our marriage, there are times I am responsible for the problem and times you are. Frequently, we both have some contribution to the problems that we face. We both share some responsibility in working together to solve most of the problems we face.

Jesus Christ was a tremendous disappointment to most everyone who knew and loved Him at one time or another. Consider the following:
A Savior who never freed God's people from the oppressive Roman rule of His day.
A Chosen One who began to wipe out human hunger with five loaves of bread and two fish, but who quickly gave it up...

How long, Lord, must I call for help, but you do not listen? Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save? Why do you make me look at injustice? Why do you tolerate wrongdoing? Destruction and violence are before me; there is strife, and conflict abounds. - Habakkuk 1:2-3
Scripture as a Weapon
In I Corinthians 11:3 we are told...

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." Ephesians 6:12
Clearly there is NO shortages of darts being heaved at believers from Satan. And it appears as though he's not gonna let up any time soon. But then again we were never promised a trial free life either, in fact it's quite rediculous to think that we could go through life with no problems. Going through trials is just a part of this journey we are on and we WILL have trails until the day the Lord comes.
James 1: 2 tells us "Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds...

Each year at this time you don’t have to drive far to see someone standing on a corner with a big sign pointing in the direction of a tax service wanting your business – and this year is no exception. Every day on my journey to work as I reach a certain corner, THERE HE IS – dancing on the corner swinging the big sign , not to mention being dressed up in a bright green outfit that resembles the statue of Liberty! Each morning as I drive by I tend to chuckle and think, that must be such a drag of a job!
