He found himself holding his phone, knowing that their entire relationship had fallen apart. He had just received a text message from his wife that was intended for another man. She was seeking comfort, companionship and romance outside of their marriage. As he scrolled back through his old texts with his wife he saw nothing but a long conversation of errands, grocery lists and basic exchanges of information. There was not a trace of passion or love. The words she expressed to someone else were words he hadn’t heard from her in years.
That’s an all-too-familiar conversation we have in ministry. So many people drift away from one another in marriage and the results are devastating. This just happened to a couple in our church. My friend put it this way in his email to me;
We probably looked like a perfect couple to some people, but over the years we drifted apart, especially after the kids were gone. We said we loved each other, but didn't really show it. We never really fought, but once in a while she would tell me that she was unhappy and I would promise to do better, then things would revert back to the old ways. I wasn't paying attention to her like I should have and she found someone who made her feel good about herself.
For most people this would have been the end. But it wasn’t for this couple. The day after he found this text they attended our Date Night marriage event and God brought unexpected healing. It wasn’t our programming or anything that we did. God simply used the space we provided that night to realign their relationship.
When I found Southland’s Date Night, I didn't realize it then, but that was part of His miracle. It was a turning point for us. And the follow up Bible study hit a lot of our problem areas head on. We started praying together every night. We opened our hearts up and talked about things that we never had. We've now begun another Bible study together and we are continuing to work on our marriage and appreciate each other. We're rebuilding our marriage on God's promises. Our love is better than it has ever been.
The Lord worked a miracle in our marriage. When we started putting Him at the center of our marriage, He worked in a big way and has blessed us beyond belief.
God can bring that same healing to your marriage and marriages around you. Here are three things you can do to get Him involved.
I Samuel - II Chronicles… Sovereign
Song of Solomon… Intimacy
Nahum - Malachi.... Repentance
I & II Corinthians… Unity
I & II Thessalonians… Hope
I & II Timothy… Character

I, II, & III John… Simplicity
