Avoid This Pitfall Before You Say I Do
I was married for 8 years before I realized the tremendous mistake I made. Haphazardly, I discovered it one Sunday morning as I sat listening to a singles message by Andy Stanley. “Nobodies looking for a woman with daddy wounds.” He said sarcastically. “You got daddy wounds? Ah, I’m not interested in you. I want someone who comes into this relationship roaring angry and blames me for everything she’s mad at her dad about. That’s what I’m looking for.”
Initially, I assumed the message did not apply to me because I was married, but those words became the arrow and my soul the bulls eye. As I sat in the balcony I wondered if anyone could tell I had the wounds he spoke about. What I failed to realize was the person who knew about my wounds was sitting next to me; I was married to him. “Do I do that?,” I asked (Even though I knew the answer). “Sometimes,” he responded ( being kind).
