Bible Verse: “Marriage should be honoured by all…” (Hebrews 13:4)

Scripture Reading: Psalm 100:1-5

About half way through our yearly plan Promise Keepers Canada gathers the staff together for a mid-year update. We celebrate what God has done in the first half of the year: lives impacted at conferences, new study guides created, new resources for church leaders, and workshops churches have hosted. We look forward to things yet to come in the second half of the year: new live events, Valentine’s Day and Father’s Day devotionals, new online workshops, and new This Is Me TV episodes online for young men. The meeting serves to encourage us with all God has done and challenge us with ministry we hope to still see happen.

Marriages are vastly different than ministry organizations but the principal of stopping to celebrate God’s faithfulness is one that easily applies in multiple situations. Take some time to stop and list all the ways God has blessed you. Looking through old photos like you did earlier this week can help.

I believe that God has a plan for this ministry. I also believe God has a plan for your marriage. He created each of us, He created marriage and He has designed you to be better for it. That doesn’t mean everything will easily fall into place; we live in a fallen world with struggles. It does mean God desires for you to be more like His Son and to bless each other through your marriage.

Take some time in prayer to thank Him and celebrate His blessings. Ask Him to guide you, help you to love each other and live out the marriage promise.

He wants great things for you. Celebrate!
