We work together as partners who belong to God. 1 Corinthians 3.9a (NLT) Comment These days we tend to associate the word Partner with co-habitating couples.  However, partner is a lovely word describing working together/sharing responsibilities each with a ‘part’ to play.  (Personally I like it much better than spouse!). In business, often partners are formed when two people come...

I give you peace, the kind of peace that only I can give. It isn’t like the peace that this world can give. So don’t be worried and afraid.  John 14:27 (CEV) Comment Learning to relax with God’s peace takes time and practice. The world and our lives today move at such a pace, that we often only snatch at...

Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate. Mark 10:9  Comment I always find the part in a wedding service where the minister joins the bride and grooms hands together and prays this verse over them, so powerful.  It is acknowledging that right from the start of our relationship, our marriage is under attack and there are forces that...

Praise be to the Lord for He showed his wonderful love to me when I was in a besieged city. In my alarm I said “I am cut off from your sight!” Yet you heard my cry for mercy when I called to you for help. Love the Lord all his saints! The Lord preserves the faithful but the proud...

Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is strong as death, passion fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, a raging flame.

Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing (win a prize). 1 Peter 3:8 (winds in bracket mine) Comment I have seen marriage likened to a three...

This is the confidence we have in approaching God; that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we asked of him. 1 John 5: 14-15 Comment This week I met an angry man. He had reason to be...

Be kind to one another, tender hearted, compassionate, understanding, loving hearted, forgiving each other as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:33 Comment Being fluent in the language of forgiveness is essential in marriage. Living in close proximity means we have to be humble with each other. We have to be able to say “What I did was wrong please...

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27 Submit to one another out of reference for Christ. Ephesians 5.21 Comment “Men can’t see dust” according to one author. If I’m in any way typical that might be related to lack of motivation to do...

“A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.” Proverbs 25:11 NIV Comment When some people compliment me I often ignore it. I think – ‘well they would say that’. However when a closer friend says the same I might pay more attention. When my partner eyeballs me and affirms and encourages me it goes deep....
