Wednesday Spiritual Encouragement
During Marriage Week I have challenged my readers to a Date Night Challenge.
Date Night Challenge: During National Marriage Week plan a 2-hour date night with your spouse. This does not have to be away from home or spend any extra funds. Just 2 hours of one on one time doing something that you and your spouse finds enjoyable.
Have you made plans for your date night yet? I have our date night almost squared away, and plan to do something on Valentines Day, which will be the last day of Marriage Week.
Why so much emphasis on Date Nights you ask?
There are many couples that feel like the normal day-to-day routine is drowning their marriages. Cooking, Cleaning, Working, Bills, can become so overwhelming at times. In these overwhelming times couples often drift apart if they do not put effort into staying connected. Unfortunately we know that when some couples drift apart they feel that the Love has faded and seek Love from other sources.
God has written a plan for our lives and especially our marriages. God brought you and your spouse together and he wants you to stay together. God knows that courtships count.
Here are a few Bible Versus that highlight to Continue Courtship in our Marriage:
If we are looking for a positive change we must make a positive difference. Do something different to make a change for the betterment of your marriage.
In gathering my tips from real Marriages for another post for National Marriage Week, one readers shared : "It is important to read the Bible and pray together, as a couple, I think it's almost mandatory to help keep your relationship line "open" to God".-Lezlie Horst
I encourage you to Pray together and Seek God together if you are seeking your “Loving Lasting Marriage”.
