If I can just stick to tacking and tuning myself, often God brings His peace and harmony, in His time.
Part of my tack and tune kit is to keep a copy of our Marriage Certificate on the bulletin board at my desk. I also have a copy of the promises I’ve made in my vows to Darrell on my computer. When we’re in the middle of a heated fight (and in some of our less shining moments, those fights were downright vicious), I know, at some point I’m going to see that Marriage Certificate – I’ve learned to use that document as a reset for my heart and head. Instead of emotionally running away, I tack into those vows.
It’s not natural or easy, but it is simple – a simple choice of spirit instead of flesh. God will give a simple clear way for you too — just ask Him.
Tacking and Tuning always take me to the next level in my role as a wife. We can go from bad to good and then from good to great.
