I accept you, I believe you’re valuable, I care when you hurt, I desire what’s best for you, and I erase all offences. Chuck Swindoll calls this the A-B-Cs of love.
In a day when half of all marriages fail, we all need insight that stands the test of time. We need wisdom from Scripture to equip us to transform our own union from a lacklustre contract into an intimate and exciting relationship.
Whether you're recently engaged, just realizing the honeymoon is over, or celebrating your golden anniversary, Insight for Living remains committed to helping couples cultivate honesty, exhibit grace, and experience a joy and intimacy in marriage that they never thought possible.
Are you married? Single? Something else? Whatever your status, acceptance is key. Discontentment can rob you of your enthusiasm for life.
Milestones are worth celebrating. They’re wonderful opportunities to reflect on where you’ve been and evaluate where you’re going.
Sharing life is better than going it alone. Life is hard. Having a friend by your side can help you survive even the most troubling challenges.
Marriage is through the hard times, when the fun and games have passed. When you stand together like steers in a blizzard, Ephesians 5 makes sense in a whole new way.
True commitment doesn’t change with shifting fortunes of life or with the ebb and flow of feelings. Commitment is a promise made once for all time and then confirmed by the daily decision to stay rather than leave.
Chuck Swindoll has five principles for making a marriage stick:Cultivate complete honesty Express anger appropriately Don’t steal from your mate Guard your speech Be nice
Applying these to your marriage will breathe new life into it. It’s not too late to have a marriage that thrives.
Men are especially vulnerable to temptation in times of stress. A wife’s emotional support is critical and these times. Husbands need the wisdom, perspective, and spiritual strength of their spouses.
We all know what it’s like to get those feelings in the pit of our stomachs when we sense something just isn’t right. In these times it’s important to listen to our intuition and slow down—especially before making a big decision.
Keeping a marriage together is hard work. Making it thrive is even harder. Thankfully, God has filled His Word with principles that breathe life into our unions. Cynthia and I have taken the time to find those principles, and we’ve applied them as often as possible.
