Having someone to share life’s journey together with is a gift.
And in spite of all the craziness life can bring, you can have a great, loving, and successful marriage! As we’ve talked about before, you don’t find a great marriage; you build one.
Marriage Building Tip
As a couple, dreaming is one of the most important things you can do together. Dreaming and planning gives you a vision and goals that you can share, get in agreement on, and work toward together to bring to pass.
Everyone knows how to dream. As a kid in elementary school, you and your best buddies would dream. Before you got married, you dreamed about what your life would be like, where you would live, what you would be doing, and how many kids you would have.
Don’t ever lose your dream! Do you want to maintain a great, healthy marriage? Dream together!
Plan sessions with your spouse where you get together and make plans for your future. Work on a five-year plan, or a five-month plan, or a five-week plan. The idea is to dream together and talk about where you would like to be and what you would like to accomplish. You can be as detailed as you’d like, but keep it simple.
First, write down your dreams, and then make a list of goals that will help you begin to accomplish them. Habakkuk 2:2 says to write the vision; make it plain so that those that read it can run with it, meaning they can join in on accomplishing the goal.

Dreaming, planning, and accomplishing goals together is a major key to building a great marriage!
