#13 Go Ahead, Ask Him

October 13, 2012

in the generous life

I’m “running” in the CMBA half marathon (blogging daily from Oct 1st to 13th) by writing “13 Things I’ve Learned About Marriage.”


13 Things I’ve Learned About Marriage

#13 – Pray daily for your marriage.

Today is the last day of the blogging half marathon. Actually there is so much more to learn than 13 points. You and your husband are unique people and you will go though many seasons during your marriage. Learning to live with your sweetie is something of a moving target as you navigate together through life.

But, not to worry. You have a God who wants to see your marriage become absolutely amazing. Talk to Him. Ask for His help. Ask for wisdom. Stick close to Him and let Him teach you about marriage. Ask Him to change your heart and grow your love for your husband.

I used to feel like I was bugging God when I asked for things. He finally got through to me that He wants to hear about my fears and hopes and needs. I’m certain He would love to hear from y’all as well.

… ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be made full.  John 16:24b  NAS

Lori, I have so appreciated these 13 blogs in your half marathon. I was wondering if there was a way you could publish a printable list, minus the links. Blessings to you!

My husband and I kick off the Christmas season at Thanksgiving time.
We want our kids to understand need and gratitude. We begin a “fast” of a very simple meal 1 night per week, meatless and dessertless and simple. The money we save by doing that is put in a jar, and as a Christmas present to Jesus, we find a Christian charity of our choice and donate it to them.
