baby step 2 to a marriage makeover

Baby Step 2: RENEW YOUR COMMITMENT TO FOLLOW GOD AND HIS WAYS AFTER BABY STEP 1.

Now that you are done with baby step 1, it is time to assess where you are in your walk with God. Most of the time what happens is that our walk with God is not where it is supposed to be and every time you get into that place of dryness in your walk with God – everything else follows.

A man I know left his wife and quit on his marriage. When I asked the wife what changed and how he came back to his old lustful ways – the answer was he started neglecting his time and his relationship with God.

Here is a secret to a strong marriage.

YOU HAVE TO LOVE GOD MORE THAN YOU LOVE YOUR SPOUSE.

If you love God more than your spouse then:

your feelings won’t dictate your commitment

you are accountable to God and not to men

it is easier to forgive because you committed more grave sins to God and He still chose to forgive you so what right do you have not to forgive your spouse.

your love for God overflows in your marriage.
