Marriage Lessson 1
As a counselor by profession I want to use my blog for things that are close to my heart, I want it to be a place that offers help and information. Most that follow me know that homeschooling is at the top of that list but in all honesty so is having healthy, happy relationships. Weekly I am going to try to share a new aspect of relationship building so that you can have it if you want! My prayer is that it might bless you or someone!
God Must Be Involved in Your Marriage
Yet you say, "For what reason?" Because the Lord has been witness between you and the wife of your youth, with whom you have dealt treacherously; yet she is your companion and your wife by covenant.Mark 10:7-9
"'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate."
"For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh." This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails...
There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.Philippians 2:3-5
Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.
Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus...Proverbs 15:1
A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.1 Thessalonians 5:15
See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all.
Psalm 51:1, 10 (New Living Translation)
Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love. Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins...
Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a right spirit within me.Ephesians 4:32
And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.Ephesians 5:25
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her...Titus 2:4 (New Living Translation)
These older women must train the younger women to love their husbands and their children.
