You and your spouse are unique. There has never been another US just like the two of you. You may be thinking…ahh we are like a marital snowflake, how romantic. Or you may be thinking…thank God there is not another marriage like ours because we are a hot mess!
No matter where you currently find your US, you can experience more moments of awesome and less moments of awful. Because God gives us clear directions and instructions for our marriage. And when you dive in to see what the Bible has to say about marriage, you find verses that have “how-tos” and “ahas.”
And when we trust God and follow His instructions for our marriage, we start creating habits that connect us as a couple. But maybe your spouse is not willing or open to doing marriage God’s way. Be encouraged. While it always takes two to keep a negative cycle going, it often just takes just one to stop it.
And here is the great news: you are not the only one who wants a great marriage; God wants that for you even more. He gives you great instructions on how to have a great US…helping you to have more moments of awesome and less moments of awful…helping us to become… YOUR BEST US.
Where is that place you feel stuck in your marriage? Ask yourself, “What is one thing God would have me do to get us unstuck?”
God, while I was still a sinner, still imperfect, You loved me. Today, God help me to love my spouse just a fraction of the way You love me. Show me the moments and situations where I can show grace and encouragement.

‘Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude. See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. Colossians 2:6-8
