Together Forever

There is no winner or loser in a marriage. You are on the same team. If you have to win an argument, you have just lost the fight. There is no point in placing blame when conflict arises. The best thing to do is to start looking for the solution. How can we do better vs “You need to do better!” How can we communicate better vs “You need to communicate better!” There will always be one who is stronger in an area than the other. Use those strengths to compliment each other. A marriage takes both of you to be present, willing, and committed to each other and to the covenant you made. The two of you are in the same boat. You will either sail together or sink together. Invest in your marriage like many do for their wedding. It is worth the time, effort, and money. Together forever is a nice phrase, but it can also become your reality. Work together to achieve the forever. With God, all things are possible.

Monday Morning Motivation

Anytime we operate in the wisdom of God, before anything else, it is pure. It has no ill motives, selfish desires, and it is not tainted. His wisdom governs our lives according to his will. His wisdom leads to fruitful works, not anger, bitterness, or revenge. It will always point us towards his scriptures. His wisdom is full of mercy. It inspires us to be kind to the afflicted, and gives us the desire to help them. His wisdom leads and guides us, and God wants to lead you. Ask him for wisdom and let wisdom inspire you in all that you say and do, this week. #wisdom #bemerciful #goodfruits

God wants us to learn of him and lean on him. His instructions will cause us to consider the decisions we make and cause us to prosper. His way leads to life and peace. We can avoid unnecessary hardship when we follow God. He sees who we are, where we are, and our issues. Who better to follow than the one who knows our end. #guideme #teachme #showmetheway

God Can Restore

No one enters into a marriage expecting difficult times. No one expects to fall out of love with his/her spouse. No one expects to become the struggling and failing marriages that you see everyday. Then, one day you wake up and realize, you are them. All have experienced some type of hardship in marriage, but very few survive. We forget what the Bible says about love, forgiveness, kindness, mercy, etc. Those words do not excuse the wrong that may be done unto you. They do negin the process of restoration. We may not be able to foresee the tough times ahead, but we can determine in our heart that no matter what we face, we will make it through. We cannot say how long our troubles may last, but we do know they won’t last forever. We must remember to stand on the word even during times that we are standing alone. God can heal all things. God can renew all things. And remember, God can restore. When two become one is just the beginning. When two remain one, it’s a prize worth winning. Don’t lose hope. Don’t lose faith. Believe me, it is worth fighting for!

We that are strong, able, powerful, and mighty…must lift up our brothers and sisters, when they are down. It is our duty to carry them when they fall. The definition of infirmities is- of error arising from weakness of mind. When people make bad decisions due to the weakness of mind, don’t judge them, pray for them. Encourage them. Lift them up and let God get the glory! #BeAHelp #bearthemup #GlorytoGod
