When tough times arrive in your marriage—whether due to job loss, health crisis, pornography use, or simply baggage you both carry into your union—there’s nothing like the comfort of knowing that when you’re joined in faith in Christ, you can seek God together to see you through. The added bonus of prayer for and with each other is one of God’s great gifts. But perhaps you and your spouse aren’t on the same page spiritually—you’re more interested in growth, while your mate is comfortably complacent. Or perhaps you are the sole Christ-follower in your marriage. Whether your relationship is built around a common faith you seek to live out daily and share with others, or you’re the only believer in your family, there’s so much God longs to offer you. Your spiritual walk is a journey of discovery, in which you seek God through prayer, Bible study, evangelism, and fellowship with other believers. The following articles will guide and encourage you in the process of this discovery—whether you do it on your own, with a spouse at a differing stage of spiritual maturity, or joined hand-in-hand with your mate, eager to grow together and bring the good news to those you encounter in your everyday lives.
MARRIAGE IN THE REAL WORLD
Whether you’ve been married five years or fifty, you know life with your spouse is filled with its share of magic (when your relationship’s firing on all cylinders) and laugh-outloud moments — as well as those moments of outright miscommunication and downright conflict. Perhaps your needs for intimacy no longer match those of your partner, and you’re battling frustration or discouragement. Perhaps your relationship suddenly seems one-sided, or has become sidetracked by something as seemingly innocuous as fascination with social media or by pressing parenting problems, job changes, or even health concerns. Then there’s that little thing called “romance.” Yes, romance is the icing on your marriage cake, but let’s face it, life often isn’t very romantic. The act of continually knitting together the busy lives of two imperfect people into a healthy Christian marriage can be a daunting task requiring loads of hard work, creativity, and reliance on God.
Anyone who’s been married for any length of time can relate to the challenges that crop up whenever you seek to build a more positive, joyful, and God-honoring union.
