Is Your Marriage Important to You?

It’s a new year and many people are making new year resolutions!

In 2021 you’ll eat better – plan better – and finally start moving toward your goals.

Good for you!

But, there is one resolution many of us never – ever – consider; and that is, make sure our marriage is healthy and thriving.

You might very well think your marriage is important to you, but name five actions you perform each day to truly demonstrate that your marriage is important to you.

Does your husband know you love him?

How does he know?

How many date nights do you have a week?

If and when you do have a date night, what do you talk about?

The kids?

Work?

Do you ever talk about each other?

How many date nights do you have where you sit for an hour and talk about how much you love each other?

No, I’m serious!

Probably not a lot…I can bet on it.

How often do you engage in physical intimacy – because you love each other? Not because your husband asked and you don’t feel like hearing him complain.

How often do you pray together or read the Bible together?

Do you ever ask your husband if he’s okay or if he needs prayer about something?

I once had a very bad marriage. That is NOT the case today! In February I will be happily married for 19 years!

We went through many bad years. You would have thought we hated each other. Only God can turn your marriage around. He absolutely turned mine around.

Join me for a new series starting next week on marriage as we head into February; the so-called month of “love”. I’m no expert, but I will share with you some of what worked for us; how God transformed our marriage – and I pray it will work for you too.
