Is Your Marriage (Or Other Relationships) A Place Of Trust?


Are you building relationships of trust? Take time to look at yourself, your marriage and other relationships in the mirror of these questions.

A TRUST QUESTIONNAIRE

1) Is there more unity, understanding, and love in your marriage now than there has ever been?
2) Do you both do what you promise in the time that you have promised?
3) Are you attentive to what your spouse sees as important?
4) Do you make excuses for failures to do what you’ve promised, or are you ready to confess?
5) Do you listen well to your spouse and act on what you’ve heard?
6) Do you follow through with mutually agreed-upon plans?
7) Do you work together on planning and scheduling priorities, or do you demand that the other do it your way?
8) Do you share with your spouse your thoughts, desires, hopes, dreams, and concerns, or is it easier for you to be quiet or to share with someone else?
9) Is there any evidence that you’ve withdrawn from the other in protective distance?
10) Would your spouse say that you’re good for your word and faithful to your promises?
11) Do you carry wrongs around with you, or do you trust one another to confront and confess?
12) Do you ever wonder what the other is doing when not with you?
13) Are you conscious of editing your words and withholding your feelings because you can’t trust your spouse to deal with them properly?
14) Is your marriage partner the best friend in your life or has your dream of this kind of companionship evaporated?
15) Is your sexual relationship mutually satisfying, or is it hard for you to give yourself physically to your spouse?
16) Do you say things to other people about your spouse that you’ve not communicated to him or her?
17) Do you look forward to sharing times together, and when you have these times are they peaceful and enjoyable?
18) Are there problems between you that remain unsolved because you don’t have the bond of trust necessary to work together on a solution?
19) Are you comfortable with the vulnerability that a good marriage involves?
20) Do you ever wonder if you made a mistake in marrying the person who is your spouse?
21) Do you ever fear that you’re being manipulated or taken advantage of in any way?
22) Do you ever wonder if your spouse cares for him- or herself more than for you?

So, look over your answers. What do you think? Is trust solid in your marriage? Is it growing in your other relationships? As you commit yourself to build a sturdy bond of trust, remember you don’t do that work alone or in your own strength. The One, who defines what trust is and does, is with you and offers you every grace you need to build relationships that picture his grace and point to his glory.

After I originally commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
and now whenever a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
Is there an easy method you can remove me from that service?
Thanks!

Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but
I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop,
just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now
broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic
but I had to share it with someone!

I seldom write remarks, but i did a few searching
and wound up here Untitled. And I do have 2 questions for you
if you tend not to mind. Is it just me or does it look like some of these remarks
appear as if they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing on additional sites, I
would like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you make a list
of every one of your public pages like your linkedin profile,
Facebook page or twitter feed?

Officials expect to make a significant impact in allowing farmers to preserve their produce,
which otherwise would need to be carried out by specialist companies who were registered under the micro-generation certification scheme MCS.

We are all aware of the wider impacts of the economic
stimulus package incentives for photovoltaic farms power generation with the national grid, which is what we slowed down
has increased yield, pretty good.
