Marriage takes work. There are wonderful, happy seasons, and there are difficult seasons. When you or your spouse are in the military, one potentially difficult season is deployment.
- Be ready to be gone… it’s going to happen.
- Have a good financial plan with the extra income.
- Make an extra effort to communicate while you’re gone.
- Carefully re-establish norms when you get home.
From the Bible:
James 1:2-6 “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.”
