February Marriage Challenge
I am so tired of hearing about marriages falling apart inside of the modern day church! Aren’t you?? The devil has so clearly targeted our marriages as an attempt to undermine the incredible plans that God has for each one of us and for His Church as a whole. It seems like everywhere you turn there is a marriage on the rocks! We know that the enemy is attacking us…but how in the world do we fight back??
It’s easy to throw out the easy church-answers: prayer, reading our bibles, attending worship services, attending our Sunday school classes. Those are the obvious solutions. Honestly, I sometimes wish there were something more pragmatic that I could dive into; something I could do every single day with purpose and complete clarity to sort of guide those good things along.
A couple years ago, my wife, Shelley, and I decided we would try something. We committed to spending a few minutes with each other every night in a very purposeful conversation/bible reading/prayer exchange. We discussed what we thought might be effective, and then we put that plan into a written outline form that we could easily follow along. The end results were really, really wonderful. We grew closer together in that season like never before. I believe the fruits of that time are still evident in our marriage today.
I wish I could say that we stuck with it and still meet every day to this point…but that isn’t honest! We haven’t kept it up! SO…in an effort to re-start this system for ourselves as we fight for our marriage against the wiles of the devil, we are inviting you to join us! We have put our entire system in a downloadable outline form for your use! We have even given you a question and a specific Bible verse for every single day in the month of February. So here is what we are going to do:
Starting on February 1st, we invite you to join us in taking our “Resonate February Marriage Challenge”! We are hoping that you and your spouse will commit to meeting together purposefully every single day in the month of February, once a day, to go through our outlined process. This process will guide you through a “family meeting” of sorts that will take you through Bible reading, prayer and uplifting, fruitful conversation! I think if you really go for it, your marriages will be incredibly blessed for years to come…and hopefully you can establish a new tradition within your marriage that becomes an amazing weapon to fend off attacks from the devil.
I truly believe that there is something powerful about a bunch of married couples doing this same thing at the same time with the same scriptures every day. It changes us from bystanders, victims, into an army on the move for God’s will in our marriages! I believe we can really pull this off if you guys are willing to commit to this with us!! Will you do it??
By clicking on the link below, you can download an easy-to-follow outline and all of the verses for every day in February. I will also post the daily verse and daily question on social media every day starting February 1st. SO…download this thing and lets get to work on our marriages with purpose! I can’t wait to see the fruit that God brings out through this…Please send us reports of how your marriage is changing throughout the process so we can all praise God for His amazing work in our lives. Love you guys…
