MARRIAGE: HOLY OR HAPPY?
March 04, 2020
What if the greatest joy was discovering that marriage should make us holy and not happy?
Have you ever reached a crisis point in your marriage? Are you hopelessly wondering whether a restoration was even possible or worth it? Maybe you were wondering – what happened?
Two people came together in the name of love and made a covenant before God and the family to spend more time in conflict than in close connection. Unfortunately, this is more than ever a common ground in marriages. So where can you go if you feel like you disagree with your spouse?
If you think hope has been lost? Back to the basis of why God brought you together here! I believe that God brings people together with the intent of both being stretched and growing into the individuals He wants them to be. I also believe that he uses the conflict areas in our marriage as a mirror to show us "growth opportunities".
There are several resources available to help you learn more about building a thriving marriage or simply looking at a marriage:
