Come on, let's liven up this group!
For me, I appreciate the way God uses my marriage to reveal so much about my character to me - it feels so hard to see so many of my shortcomings, but as a result I'm also given the grace to make those changes. Marriage is a refiner's fire!
I believe there's no greater opportunity for transformation more and more into Christ's character than in marriage.
In my marriage I have learnt to developed the technique to love unconditionally, "agape" . When I got married it was that other attraction that ruled, but now as I have learnt about God's love I have the opportunity to now put into practice what Jesus has taught us. And the closest to prove this is my husband because there are things and ways we see and do differently so I take advantage of that and exercise/ do/ apply the word to straighten things with love.
Secondly I have the advantage of being in "church" most of the time. During IPPC 2011 Pastor Chris zeroed on Matthew 18:19 about 2 or 3 gathered in my name. I can not struggle with an issue because all I need is my husband to agree with in prayer over issues and they are solved!
This is was awesome! Wonder how many of us are taking advantage of this promise.
