What do you do to keep your marriage strong?

Word for Your Life

Now then, you & all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give them… ~ Joshua 1:2

A Year with Aslan from The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

When you’re in charge, when you reign over something, that comes with certain responsibilities.

Our heroes have vanquished the foes, & Caspian announces that he’s turning the ship over to Drinian – & he’s following Reepicheep to see the World’s End.  His thinking is “I’m in charge – you’re my subjects – I can do this if I want.”

But Reepicheep becomes the voice of reason, & says ..

You’re the King of Narnia.  You break faith with your subjects if you don’t return.  You can’t please yourself with adventures as if you were a private person.  & if your Majesty will not hear reason, it will be the truest loyalty of every man on board to follow me in disarming you until you come to your senses.

There are a lot of things we’d “like” to do.  & Christ’s sacrifice does mean we’re free.  But freedom comes with responsibilities.

& remember we weren’t just freed – we were bought at a price.

We’re all drawn to beauty, & that’s one of the reasons we have to be careful how we define it, because the enemy is all to eager to put those temptations in front of us.

Malachi 2:15 says…

Guard yourself in your spirit, & don’t break faith with the wife of your youth.

When Satan tempts us, he does it with attractive, even innocent looking packages.  But if we’re not careful, those relationships can entangle you – & wreck what God has planned.

So today’s One Thing for us is just jot down 5 things you love & respect – about your spouse if you’re married, or maybe about what you’re looking for in a spouse if you’re single.  & then ask God to reinforce them in your heart.


A.W. Tozer ~ Renewed Day By Day

The fall of man has created a perpetual crisis. It will last until sin has been put down and Christ reigns over a restored world. Until that time the earth remains a disaster area .. It’s always been difficult to understand those Christians who insist upon living in the crisis as if no crisis existed. They divide their days so as to leave plenty of time to play & loaf – they are at ease while the world burns.

Phillip Yancey ~ What’s So Amazing About Grace?

The image Jesus used to describe the church’s destiny – “the gates of hell will not prevail against it” – is a metaphor of offense, not defense.  Christians are storming the gates, & they will prevail.  Not matter how it looks at any point in history, the gates guarding the powers of evil will not withstand an assault by grace.

Louie Giglio ~ Indescribable

Scientists aren’t entirely sure just how big the universe is, but one thing is clear: We’re really small.  In fact, earth itself is inconsequential amid the expanse of space.  But if you look closely enough at the pale blue dot, you’ll find, beside a busy roadway, just outside a small city, on a hot after­noon thousands of years ago, a cross that stills looms ever so large in history .. where hung God, in human flesh.

Booker T. Washington

If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.

Brennan Manning ~ The Ragamuffin Gospel

I’ve been given the utterly undeserved gift of salvation in Jesus Christ.  Thru no merit of mine, I have been given a bona fide invitation to drink new wine forever at the wedding feast in the kingdom of God – but sometimes I get so involved with myself that I start making demands for things I think I deserve, or I take of granted every gift that comes my way.

CS Lewis ~ Mere Christianity

If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next.

David Roper ~ A Heart of Wisdom

Pain, far from being an obstacle to our spiritual growth, can be the condition of it.  God will discipline the ungodly in due time, but he must first discipline & teach His own children – because a good Father begins with his own family. & without pain, God could never make the most of our lives.

Donald Miller ~ Blue Like Jazz

In some ways we treat our neighbors BETTER than we treat ourselves, because we would never say the things to a neighbor that we tell ourselves every day.  We don’t believe it’s okay to kick people around, but we do it to ourselves all the time.

Matt Redman ~ Facedown

When it comes to expressing our worship, what we do on the outside is a key reflection of what’s taking place on the inside.  Facedown worship always begins as a posture of the heart.  God will one day invade.  There’s no use saying you choose to lie down when it’s become impossible to stand up.


Job 13:15

Psalm 27:4

Colossians 1:27

Romans 1:16

Joshua 3:5

Word for Your Life

Let us rejoice & be glad & give Him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, & his bride has made herself ready. ~ Revelation 19:7

A Year with Aslan from The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Eustace has come up missing .. & as Prince Caspian is trying to organize a rescue party, one of the crew mumbles “good riddance”, but is quickly rebuked by Reepicheep.

You never spoke a word that became you less.  The creature is no friend of mine but he’s of the Queen’s blood, & while he’s one of our fellowship it concerns our honor to find him & avenge him if he’s dead.

We would do well to remember that kind of honor in our interactions with friends…& enemies…face to face, or on Facebook.

Daily Walk Devotion ~ Intentional Living Center

When we talk to God, even though He’s called us friend, we must not forget who He is.

There was a boy who asked a businessman for $10,000.  The businessman said “Son, do you have any idea who you’re talking to?”  To which the boy replied – “Yeah.  I’m talking to the man who’s rich enough to pay for the operation that will save my mom’s life.”

The same is true for us.  When we’re praying we’re talking to the Creator, Sustainer, Healer, Provider, & Author of our faith – & his name is to be honored.


A.W. Tozer ~ That Incredible Christian

Before the judgment seat of Christ my service will be judged not by how much I’ve done but by how much I could’ve done. In God’s sight my giving is measured not by how much I have given but by how much I could have given, & how much I had left after I made my gift.  In the work of the church the amount one man must do to accomplish a given task is determined by how much or how little the rest of the company is willing to do. It is a rare church whose members all put their shoulder to the wheel.

Matt Redman ~ Devotion on Mercy

It’s the difference between life & death, between inescapable chains & eternal freedom.  It’s where love & justice kiss, & holiness & mercy meet.

Phillip Yancey ~ What’s So Amazing About Grace

The original followers of Jesus watched their beloved Jerusalem burn to the ground, & I’m sure they looked back thru tears as they moved on to Rome & Spain & Ethiopia.

CS Lewis ~ The Weight of Glory

…we are on the outside of the world, the wrong side of the door. We discern the freshness & purity of morning, but they don’t make us fresh & pure. We can’t mingle with the splendors we see. But all the leaves of the New Testament are rustling with the rumor that it will not always be so. Some day, God willing, we shall get in.

Audrey Hepburn

The beauty of a woman isn’t in a facial mode, but is reflected in her soul.

Donald Miller ~ Blue Like Jazz

All the wonder of God happens above our formula.  The more I climb outside my pat answers, the more invigorating the view – & the more my heart enters into worship.
