Marriages don’t just slip into “happily ever after.” Marriage takes intentionality and effort. Two people who each have their own unique struggles, insecurities, and faults are bound to have conflicts at times in marriage. But when we connect with our spouse, deal with conflict in healthy ways, work on communication, and commit ourselves to each other, our marriages can thrive. Whether you are married or plan to be married someday, or can simply be an encouragement to a married person, this series is for you! Healthy marriages don’t just happen; we have to fight for them.

We all know how hectic and busy life can get. Our careers vie for all our energy, our kids’ activities take up our nights, and when all is said and done, there’s not much left to invest into our marriage. It can be too easy to stop connecting with our spouse the way God intended; but God’s way is always the best way. There are three words in the Song of Songs that teach us what true connection with our spouse looks like. We’ll discuss how we can connect with our spouse despite the busyness of life. There really is hope for every marriage because of Jesus!

In marriage there will be conflict. We can’t necessarily avoid the reality of conflict, but we can learn how to deal with conflict in healthy, positive ways. God is a peacemaker. If we allow the Gospel to shape us, we can be peacemakers, too.

At the core of every healthy marriage is the ability of the couple to successfully communicate. This can be difficult because everyone communicates in diverse ways and comes from a different background. Communication is a skill that must be learned and practiced with sincerity and intentionality if we want to succeed in marriage.

What do you do when you have tried to connect in a meaningful way with your spouse, taken steps to resolve conflict, and worked on better communication, but the relationship is still strained? What would being committed to your marriage look like? What did God's commitment to us look like when we fractured our relationship with Him? Can we mirror that commitment in marriage? Join us Sunday to be encouraged in all of our relationship!
