Whatever it is, turn to God first and each other second. Let Him be the foundation of your marriage so that when things get good, you can say, “God did this!” Because that’s the point of it all anyway, isn’t it?
Are you up for the Challenge? RWOC knows you can do it!!!!!

Have you ever had someone compare their marriage to yours and make you feel like she does things so much better than you do? Like because she doesn't face the problems that you have you're irrelevant? or because she's been there done that you're overreacting? How do you deal with this kind of woman?

Lord, I pray that you would protect my marriage from anything that would harm or destroy it. Shield it from our own selfishness and neglect, from the evil plans and desires of others, and from unhealthy or dangerous situations. May there be no thoughts of divorce or infidelity in our hearts, and none in our future. Set us free from past hurts, memories, and ties from previous relationships and unrealistic expectations of one another. I pray that there be no jealousy in either of us, or the low self-esteem that precedes that. Let nothing come into our hearts and habits that would threaten the marriage in any way, especially influences like alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography, lust, or obsessions.

|One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.|
|Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.|
|In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.|
|Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,|
|other times there were one set of footprints.|
|This bothered me because I noticed|
|that during the low periods of my life,|
|when I was suffering from|
|anguish, sorrow or defeat,|
|I could see only one set of footprints.|
|So I said to the Lord,|
|"You promised me Lord,|
|that if I followed you,|
|you would walk with me always.|
|But I have noticed that during|
|the most trying periods of my life|
|there have only been one|
|set of footprints in the sand.|
|Why, when I needed you most,|
|you have not been there for me?"|
|The Lord replied,|
|"The times when you have|
|seen only one set of footprints,|
|is when I carried you."|

I'm not sure if the U.S. is thinking about doing this, but I thought I would share it with you all anyway. In its effort to decrease the 50% divorce rate in Mexico they are proposing that after 2 years of marriage you have to renew your vows. You decide if you want to or not. Do you think this is going to be affective? Do you think its ok for someone to try marriage and then opt out? Does it devalue the sanctity of marriage?
