Powerful Love

by admin on March 26, 2013 in Faith, Purpose, Relationship, Sermon with No Comments

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us” (1 John 4:7-12).

Marriage from Prayer, Letter 1

by admin on March 21, 2013 in Faith, Purity, Relationship with No Comments

I wanted to read the words and pulled the jacket out of the CD. She had the Lyrics (Beautiful), A Bible Verse (1 Timothy 4:12), and a sentence saying that she wrote the song based on letters she had written to her future husband. I write them now to my future wife, which is weird because as you read you are my wife.

The Unthinkable

So as you are planning to commit your life to your beloved, remember to consider how you can love them and provide for them even after you are gone. I know it can be a downer to think about death, so definitely choose your timing wisely, but I so strongly encourage you not to shy away from preparing for your death. Planning for how you will be leaving your spouse when you die is an inevitable part of your life-long commitment to him and thus a tangible way that you can demonstrate love.

Guest Post by Kelly Saylor, MACC, LPCA, LMFTA: Preparations after the Wedding Day

by admin on March 12, 2013 in Pre-Marital Counseling, Relationship with 2 Comments

When a couple first meets they need no one to tell them how to pursue or how to respond to their desired mate. The knowledge and the desire are there. Within marriage, we as humans have the tendency to drift toward laziness, and when this enters our marital relationship, it can be very damaging.

Thought for the Week: Isaiah 6:1-8

by admin on February 24, 2013 in Relationship, Thought for the Week with No Comments

Holy, holy, holy Lord, my God Almighty, all glory and honor be to You! You are magnificent and merciful. I am sinful and in need of a savior. Jesus, forgive my sins, purify my heart, and make me wholly available to You. Help me not to seek only what marriage can do for me, but also how I can give to my marriage. Use my husband and me for great purpose in Your kingdom. Here we are; send us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Marriage is such a gift from God. Despite the pendulum of culture’s trends, God always intends marriage as an opportunity to better the husband and the wife, transforming each more into His image as He created us to be.

Dating for a New Marriage

by admin on February 7, 2013 in Logistics, Relationship with No Comments

At our Sunday morning Young Marrieds’ group, I once heard a couple talk about having ten different marriages. At first I gasped, but as they described their marriages, it began to click. They were married to each other ten different times and not technically, but relationally speaking. With each transition into a new life stage…continued here

True Grit

Your marriage can be a testimony as you commit to each other against the grain of our era. Just as Jesus has loved you, when you love one another, others will know that you are Christ’s disciples (John 13:34-35).
