Before you can know where you are going, you have to know where you are starting. Today, we will look at our marriages from their starting points.
Here are a few questions to ask yourself to determine where you are starting off from.
How are both of your relationships with Christ?
Do you have a church you attend regularly?
Do you both put regular effort into the success of your marriage?
Is your spouse supportive of your dreams and desires?
Is your spouse attentive to your needs?
Do you pray for your spouse and with your spouse every day?
Do you argue with your spouse more than you spend not arguing?
Do you tell your spouse you love them every day?
Are you more attentive to your child's needs than your spouses needs?
Do you have a group of supportive friends/couples who share the same beliefs as you?
Do each of you have an outlet or place to grow your own individual interests and walks with God?
If any of these things sound like something you are struggling with, just take a moment and pray for your marriage. Take a moment and pray for yourself and your spouse and specifically ask God to open your hearts and move your towards a more fruitful place.
