Popular gospel artiste, Lara George has disclosed that her 10-year sojourn in the school of marriage has not been too rosy. However, she expressed gratitude to God for making things good for her.
Lara, in an interview with Sun newspaper, disclosed that she cannot boast of enjoying her marriage for the past 10 years which has been faced with its own challenges.
“Of course not, it has not been blissful all the way (in my marriage), I will be lying true my teeth if I say that. No marriage is blissful 100 per cent of the time. I think the joy is being able to overcome the challenges that come, because I will be lying if I say there have been no challenges these last 10 years.
“Yes, my husband and I have had our own fair share of challenges but by God’s grace, we have surmounted each and every one, and my prayer is that we will continue in Christ every day till death do us part,” she said.
It would be recalled that on September 4, 2014, the singer celebrated her 10 years of marital bliss with an album, ‘Love Wantintin.’ She advised couples to try and understand each other in other to make their homes work.
According to her, “You know patience could be very challenging because it is the ability to understand and overlook the flaws of your partner. And you know, there are days that you just want to explode! But remember, the anger of a man is not worth the righteousness of God.
“So when you allow anger to becloud your judgment, you create a lot of problems. My husband and I had to learn to take every negative emotion aside and dump them in the backburner and make the Spirit of God our watchword so that our home will be where the Holy Spirit abides.”© 2014Nigeriafilms.com
