Word 4 Today September 18, 2011

REGARDING RELATIONSHIPS

It seems that Satan is working full time severely threatening and attacking the institution of marriage today and the problems in marriage are continuing to be more numerous.  In many marriages their problem can be selfishness; individuals think more about receiving than giving.  Another major hindrance is blaming each other and excusing their own faults and mistakes.  However, such indulgence in self-pity only short-circuits faith in God.  As our judgment for our spouse increases, love decreases.  Once we recognize our marriage is in trouble, we must acknowledge it and take it to God. He can work out all of our problems in a marvelous and wonderful way.  He can restore any relationship that is falling apart, if we put that relationship in His hands.   Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.  Ephesians 5:33

PRAYER 4 TODAY

Lord, I can guarantee that if I focus on one thing that irritates me about my wife for a while, I will end up not liking her.  Why don’t I spend that energy looking for something good and remembering why we were married in the first place?  Lord thank you for many wonderful years of marriage may you bless us with many more.

WORD 4 TODAY

Marriage, like anything else worthwhile is worth protecting!
