We make it all work – together!

With God’s help and grace, of course. 

Alone – without God – it’s a hit or miss thing.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28

God doesn’t give up on us. We are given grace over and over and over and over…  He loves us and we love Him. He has called us. We seek His purpose for our lives.

God brought the two of you together. 

Oh, we know that it’s not all good stuff in your life. We know you’re struggling. Rob and I are too! Some parts of our lives have a lot of room for improvement. A lot!

But, we can’t give up.

We need to make it all work.

Husbands and wives need to work together to make it all work.

Write the stories of God’s goodness on your hearts.

Remind each other of all the times God has been gracious to you. Tell the stories so your children and friends know how God has shown up in your lives. Write those stories down.

The post, “Encouraging Your Spouse in a Time of Disappointment” is part of our story as husband and wife. I wrote it at an intense moment in our life, then, two years later I went back and added what happened after those intense three days. Someday I will be completely candid and write the whole story to show God’s goodness. He’s still working out the final chapters, so I have to wait to tell you. But Rob and I aren’t giving up. I’m here for Rob. Here’s here for me. We are together. And through God’s grace, we are able to find a way to make it all work – together. We’re not giving up.

What about you?

Don’t give up!

Make a pledge to your spouse that you won’t give up. With God’s grace and love, He will provide what’s necessary to make it all work so you can say,

Our marriage is great because we care enough to find a way to make it all work – together!We make it all work - together.
