Dating Your Spouse

Are you dating your spouse? If not, you should be.

Think back to when you were wooing your spouse. You asked them about themselves and you listened to the answer. You gave them your time and your focus. You were interested in helping them and showing them that you care.

Those habits are not only good, they are necessary to build a strong marriage. You don’t ever need to stop dating your spouse. Listen as Joe shares why.

Watch & Be Encouraged:

The Take Away

Make it a priority to date your spouse, even if it’s only driving around the block or sitting on your porch or taking a walk about the neighborhood. It will build intimacy and help you communicate better with each other. Spending time together just talking — not about bills or problems, but just learning about each other is beneficial for your relationship.

Friday Funny : Don’t Know What to Say

Listen as Joe shares how stuff is just gonna happen.

The devil is always going to take a run at you. And sometimes, it can almost make you numb. Sometimes a crisis can leave us almost speechless.

When those times come, we need to make sure we have God’s Word in our mouth. We need to be saying the things God says.

The Bible says that God will always provide a way of escape for us. When we come through the rough times, we will have a great testimony.

Remember to Praise God, even when the times get tough!

It Takes Wisdom and Work to Have a Great Marriage

Did you know that just having a right heart won’t make you successful?

Your heart can be right but if don’t have knowledge, it’ll mess up your life.

It’s normal for couples who are young and in love to tie the knot and expect to live happily ever after. Even though they love each other and their hearts are right, many times their heads are empty. They know absolutely nothing about marriage and how to make it work. As a result, a few years into the marriage it’s easy for them to become disillusioned and think their marriage is a failure because they’re not experiencing the “happily ever after” vision they had when they first got married.

Just because you’ve found the “one” doesn’t mean you’ll have a great marriage. It takes wisdom and hard work. Couples need to get in the Word and find out what God says about marriage, learn what it means to be a husband or a wife, and learn how to grow and work together in their relationship.

Successful marriages don’t happen overnight. And just because you hit a few bumps in the road doesn’t mean your marriage is a failure. Great marriages take a lot of love, patience, forgiveness, and perseverance. They are built through an ongoing, lifelong process.

Take the time to invest in your marriage. It’s well worth the effort. Having a happy, strong, successful marriage is possible, and it’s God’s will for you!

The Take Away

God’s Word is the instruction manual for life. Gaining knowledge from God’s Word on marriage and also from other resources, such as books, seminars, and podcasts, will help you understand how to grow together and work together as a team.

Friday Funny: I Dont Need You

NEWS FLASH! MEN AND WOMEN ARE DIFFERENT

We all know that men and women are different. God made us that way.
What is more unusual, is how He designed us to be attracted to people who are opposites.

It is safe to say that if you or I had made the decision, we would have done things differently.
We would have probably created people to be attracted to others just like them.
God had a better plan. Bring people together that see things totally different.
Listen as Joe shares how our differences are what makes us stronger.

The Happy Challenge

Don’t stop the special considerations and kind gestures now that Valentine’s Day is over.

Take the Happy Challenge today and find a way to show your spouse that you are thinking about them.

Ask yourself, “What one thing can I do to make my spouse happy today?” It doesn’t have to be a big thing or something that you have to buy.  

Ask yourself, “Is there something that I can do to show them I care, to make their load easier, or to make them smile today?” 

[This also works for parents, friends, and family.]

One very powerful thing you can do for your spouse is to pray for them.

The Take Away

Remember, you are not looking for a reward. It is something you do just because you love them.  Just do something for no other reason than the fact that they are special to you.

Together, You Make Each Other Stronger

I have five daughters and a son, and if I’ve learned anything through the years, it’s that women are not the same as men. God made men and women different for a reason.

They don’t see the same. They don’t hear the same. They don’t think the same. They don’t feel the same. And they don’t problem-solve the same. As a result, many times when two people get married, it doesn’t take long before they start coming in for marriage counseling. They’re frustrated and mad at each other for the very reasons that God made them.

If they come to me for counseling, I tell them, “You don’t understand what’s going on. You’re trying to make your spouse to be like you. They’re not supposed to be like you. You married somebody who’s different. They are God’s gift to you to make you better!”

When you get married, those unique differences are intended by God to be combined together. You’re supposed to use your strengths to cover each other’s weaknesses. Together, you make each other stronger.

“The Scriptures say, “That is why a man will leave his father and mother and join his wife, and the two people will become one (Ephesians 5:31 ESV).

The Take Away

Don’t focus on your spouse’s weaknesses. Rather, respect and honor their strengths! What are your spouse’s strengths? How can those strengths be a benefit to you and your family?
