Christian marriage help that really helps
When I first began trying to help Christian couples with their marriages, I only had three things going for me as a counselor:
- The Bible says a lot about marriage.
- My own marriage was fairly healthy.
- I knew that Jesus, through the Holy Spirit had promised to be my helper and the REAL counselor (Isaiah 9:6; John 14:26).
Building without a foundation
Over time I began to notice a common problem with most of the couples I was counseling. There were basics from the scriptures they had somehow missed. They had built their marriages on little to no biblical foundation.
Is your marriage any different?
None of us comes into marriage with a marriage owner’s manual in hand. And we’re often so starry eyed we assume that “our love will see us through.” I wonder how many couples who have wound up in divorce court said that at first.
Let me ask you a question…
- Did you know how to communicate well?
- Did you know how to resolve conflict biblically?
- How about a biblical view of the husband / wife relationship?
- Did you know why God created marriage in the first place?
Let me ask you another question,
It’s never too late for God to go to work
Sadly many, many couples who have been married for a while STILL don’t know the answers to those kinds of foundational questions. As a result, they continue to struggle in knowing how to put their marriages together in a healthy way.
But here’s the good news: The LORD is faithful, even in our fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants marriages. He can and will bring about strength, stability, and health – if you are willing to learn what He has to say, and put it into practice.
Don’t miss that last phrase – it has to be PUT INTO PRACTICE. In other words, you have to truly want it… enough that you will actually DO something about it.
A resource for couples who truly want Christian marriage help
As I began realizing how many married couples
were missing the foundational biblical truths
about marriage, I decided to create a resource
they could use to play catch-up.
The Marriage Improvement Project is designed to be used with the same mindset you would have in approaching a home repair project. It’s for a short, intense time of serious focus in order to get you moving in the right direction and get things in your marriage on track. If you are willing to do that, I can almost guarantee you – this resource will be of great help to you.
Over the course of 8 weeks, you and your spouse will work through these foundational biblical principles for marriage, together…
- Marriage First
- The Cleaving Principle
- The Unity Principle
- Communication is Key
- Attacking Anger
- The Husband’s Role
- The Wife’s Role
- The Principle of Sexual Sanity
Does anything there sound of interest?
Are you ready to get moving?
If you are one of the many couples who built your marriage on little to know foundation, you don’t have to stay that way. You can begin putting the rock solid truths of scripture underneath your marriage, and see things change for the better.
But you have to be serious about it. No half-hearted efforts will do. As you step out with diligence, ready to give it all you’ve got – the Holy Spirit will meet you there with His help.
Are you serious about strengthening your marriage? Are you ready to take the challenge?[easingslider]
