Husbands and Wives
Ephesians 5:33 (ESV)
33 However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
This is just a morning encouragement to all married couples, and those that desire to be married. Love your spouse and pray for them daily. Marriage can be a wonderful blessing, but sadly in this world many times it becomes a tragedy.
If your spouse is blessing you, pray for them. If your spouse is bugging you, pray for them. If your spouse is struggling in their faith, pray for them. If your spouse is bitter, pray for them. If your spouse is succeeding, pray for them. Our natural desire is to attempt to handle our marriages on our own, but that is the role of the Holy Spirit. Whenever we attempt to step into the Holy Spirit's role, he is a gentleman and steps aside.
Pray for your spouse, your kids and your marriage on a daily basis and watch what God will do with it all.
