My Marriage Is Perfect…YEAH RIGHT!

IMG_0289As many of you know, Amy & I have the perfect marriage. It has always been rainbows and alive with the light of a million fairies. YEAH RIGHT!

No, the truth is we’ve had a 14+ year marriage that has been all over the map. Figuratively and literally, haha. We have experienced many joys, but we have also experienced (and sometimes created) many heartbreaking, trust eroding, emotion shattering moments as well. In the midst of the highs and lows, we’ve known one thing to be true: God must be the center of our marriage. That sounds like a trite “Christianese” phrase but it is very true. If we don’t allow Him entrance into every part of us individually and as a couple, we will never walk in the freedom and calling He has for us. At least not to its fullest.

As we’ve moved through our journey, there have been pivotal moments that have led us to stop and evaluate our marital and spiritual health. I’m writing today because last night was one of those times. As we got into bed and would have normally turned on a show or movie, I was led to go to the website of a church I like in Nashville. As I began to scroll through past messages, I found this video. Click Here As Amy and I sat and listened for just over an hour, we were strongly impacted by what this message spoke to us. God used it to reveal things to us about ourselves, our marriage, our parenting, people we’ve hurt, people who have hurt us. It was POWERFUL.

I strongly recommend you and your spouse OR perhaps you and your boyfriend/girlfriend watch this video. Take an hour and instead of watching mindless tv or movies, watch something that can impact your life and help you shape your future. There’s no catch here. They are not selling anything and neither am I. It is real, raw, authentic, biblical insight on relationships. I pray you’ll allow it to impact you for the better.

Believing God will be at work in your relationships as He is in ours!
