Hello dear readers I trust you are enjoying the season of our Saviour’s birth. I want to use this opportunity to thank you very much for reading, commenting and sharing Teshuva’s articles on marriage this passing year of 2014. If you were not reading then I would have been wasting time and effort, so I want to sincerely appreciate you for the times you came by.
This is the last article on marriage on Teshuva for 2014, we are barely 2-3 days away from 2015 and if you are thinking like me, you would be reflecting on the just concluding year; victories, joys, progress, achievements, miracles, mistakes and lessons Learnt.
Since marriage is an integral part of our lives, these points of reflection should also be applied to our marriages too.
To Make A Better Marriage.
Things should not remain the same in our marriages. Even if we think our marriage is great right now, we can work on making it better. We dream and deliberately plan to intentionally ensure that our marriages will make significant progress every day in the New Year.
But the path of the uncompromisingly just and righteous is like the light of dawn, that shines more and more (brighter and clearer) until it reaches its full strength and glory in the perfect day to be prepared.
Proverbs 4:18 AMP
Yesterday, in his sermon, my pastor listed 10 pungent questions we must answer in order make 2015 better and different from 2015.
Now, I will modify some of those questions to suit marriage and ask them here so that as you and I attempt to answer them by the help of The Holy Spirit we would discover ways we could better our marriages in the very near coming year.
1. What is the dream I have for my marriage that seems humanly impossible that I would want, ask and believe God to fulfill in 2015?
2. What is the single most important thing I could do to make my spouse enjoy me and our marriage better?
3. What is the one thing I do that affects my marriage negatively? What am I going to do about it?
4. What is my single biggest distraction from investing in my marriage and what am I going to do about it?
5. What single thing do I plan to do this year that will matter in my marriage, other marriages and eternity?
6. Job received his miracle when he prayed for his friends. In 2015, which marriage(s) will I uphold in prayer until I see a change(s)?
7. What spiritual discipline do I want to cultivate and grow in, that will impart my marriage and life for the better?
8. How do I get More of God’s presence and power in my marriage?
I believe strongly that if we sincerely seek God and His word for answers to this questions, in 2015, the light in and of our marriages will indeed shine brighter than all previous years put together.
What do you think?
Will you attempt to find the answers to these questions?Do you have any other question(s) you might want to add?
I pray we all have a very fulfilling New Year in our lives and marriages!
