Sowing seeds of grace + truth into my marriage blooms in spiritual maturity.

“Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭4:14-15‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Every marriage is a university, it’s children are the students.

This is Marriage Math: God is One, spouse is Two.

If spouse is One, we put enormous pressure on him. He will fail us because he’s not God. Then we fall out of love.

“First we idolize, then we demonize.” Craig Groeschel

“Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’”
‭‭Mark‬ ‭12:28-30‬ ‭NIV

Marriage-like life-is a marathon. The only way you’re going to make it to the finish line is by keeping your eyes on the prize.

We were married on Labor Day weekend, and marriage is labor! Work at oneness, humility, respect, and love. Focus on changing me, not him! Before you know it you’ll be in this season of intense satisfaction. Celebrating 41 years today with my partner in this race.

Doesn’t matter where you are in your marriage – barely begun, in the middle, in the last lap, or even in do-over marriage, it’s never too late to go for the prize. We didn’t start taking it seriously until our 19th year of marriage. You can do it too!

“Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win!”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭9:24‬ ‭NLT‬‬

It’s hard to sit in the Waiting Room. Are you wondering how long the wait will be for a vibrant, life-giving marriage? God’s actively present ‘in’ the waiting…are you?

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭11:28-30‬ ‭NIV‬‬
