Marriage Monday

Julie over at never ceases to amaze me with her godly wisdom on marriage. She hosts Marriage Monday and I wanted to include a clip from today....You should really go on over and read the WHOLE things though!
There are sweet times in married life when we are well stocked, at ease, feeling secure, and trusting one another, but other people on the road of life may hurl past us and leave our marriage spinning on the edge of disaster. It might be a family member, a co-worker, an old relationship, or an internet contact. We have to be on guard at all times and be ready to stand firm.

How can you avoid your marriage being a roadside wreck? Take a lesson from driving in snow ...

1.Prepare ahead of time ... not a shovel and flares, but prayer, intimacy, and a church family.
2.Don't think being in a beautiful place means you aren't vulnerable to evil around you.
3.If you feel yourself starting to slide one way, turn the other direction! Get out of there.
4.Sliding? Honk loud and let people know you need help.
5.Don't let your kids stand in the danger zone while you work things out ... they can get hurt.
6.A calamity is not the time to separate, abandon each other, or blame.
7.In a dangerous position? Get dirty and work hard; do everything possible to save your marriage.
8.Stand firm. You're driving together; don't let anyone push you off course.
9.Listen to people who have been stuck, but are now safe & sound ... they probably have good advice.
10.Pray. It works with snow and marriage. :)
1 Cor. 10:11-13

These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of the ages has come. So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
