Marriage is about the love and devotion between two people and can be a beautiful gift from God who intends for marriage to be a lifelong bond. The days, months or even years leading up to a marriage ceremony are often full of sweet gestures, sentiment and a passion that is unclouded by the realities and difficulties of forming a family. Even before the vows are said, marriage should be a conscious set of decisions that help the couple to form an intimate union and partnership as well as to give of themselves while also receiving each other as a gift.
Forever Me and You, the marriage ministry at Word of Life, strives to provide support and motivation as you work to develop a marriage that honors and glorifies God through quarterly fellowships, seminars and couples retreats.
Whether you are preparing for marriage, newly married, have been happily married for years or are struggling to save a marriage in crisis, it is crucial to consciously and intentionally build up your union to be Christ-centered. Maintaining a solid relationship will take work and require adjustments which can sometimes feel overwhelming. Forever Me and You is designed to help you build stronger, Christ-centered relationships. After all, the health, happiness, and general well-being of a family hang in the balance when a marriage is struggling.
In Colossians 3:13-14(NIV) we are instructed to “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”
A good marriage requires love, devotion, selflessness, kindness and care. Above all, we hope to provide you guidance that you will create and nurture a strong bond that can endure the test of time and bless you for a lifetime.
