Become Man, Wife in God: Nurturing a spiritually-based marriage Part 1

untitled

When you got married, the officiant likely ended the ceremony by introducing you and your spouse as man and wife for the first time. Did you know that there was someone who was not in the introduction? Marriage isn’t, after all, a relationship between two people. It is a relationship between two people and God.

However, what if you’ve pushed God aside in the marriage as a silent partner? How do you and your spouse make Him an active participant again? Here are three tips for cultivating a faith-centered marriage:

Pray Together

When we pray honestly, we are laid bare. We reveal our vulnerabilities. We drop pretext. Is there anything more intimate than this? Praying together, however, draws Christ into your relationship, which is much more vital. Remember, in Matthew 18:20 Jesus says, “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”

Read Scripture Together. Study Scripture together

The Bible is the living word of God. When we schedule a time to read scripture together, we think that God’s message to us is important. We are making our faith a priority. When we study the scripture altogether, we delve into a deeper understanding of God’s word and what it means for our lives and our relationship.

After many years of successful relationships in my own life, my mission is to pass on the blessings I’ve received to the many people seeking help in their own lives. I not only help to restore broken marriages, but also friendships, relationships, families etc. I am a faith-based marriage and relationship coach with a mission: To build stronger marriages through faith; to deepen the spirituality of the individual and the couple by accepting an open minded cornerstone of the marriage; to strengthen the communication, commitment, and respect within a marriage through a focus on gratitude, and love.
