I Choose to Bless...My Marriage Day 1

For the pass few years I have really struggled in my marriage.
There was a time I worked hard to build my marriage up and glorify God through it. But, the past few years I lost focus and let things go. A couple month ago my son wanted to watch our wedding so I dug out the tape and we watched it. Watching it made me realize how far we have come(18 years). 
I am choosing to get my head back in the game and work at my marriage. Satan wants nothing more then to destroy this marriage. I pray the Lord would put a hedge of protection around us so that we can build it back up.

Everyday I will share a goal for each day. This will be based out of
 "The Love Dare"
I encourage you to come along with me on the journey.
Matthew 19:6
Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder

Your Words
Your words reflect your heart.
Today practice on demonstrating patience.
Say nothing negative to your spouse at all.
If  the temptation arises, choose not to say anything.
It's better to hold your tongue than to say something
you'll regret.

Some verses to ponder

A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife. Prov. 15:18
With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Eph. 4:2


Lord, Help me today to speak out of Love... To remember your Love for us, even when we weren't lovable. Keep watch over my tongue.
Help me be silent when I shouldn't speak and to Love when it isn't  deserved. Thank you for loving us and giving us HOPE when sometimes it feels hopeless.

Brandie - what an amazing event for your son to ask to see your wedding video and your eyes seeing in new ways how far you've come and also ways you want to rebuild/refresh your marriage.

Posting about it can make it more tangible and also give your readers their own ways to be doing some thinking and "acting" in their own relationships.

Hugs -- Lynn
