This podcast is definitely a must listen as we discuss why we all should have relationship goals that define our marriage. We discuss how you can start to implement these goals into your marriage and guide you to the relationship you so desire. They're called marriage goals and they should be a basic part of each and every relationship.
The goal of a family is to live happily and starting with just the husband and wife, procreate. That's what most couples do.
However there are some people that just don't have kids in their future either due to medical reasons or they just don't want kids.
If it's for medical reasons, we can help ourselves out by meditating on God's word and speaking out in our own voice what God says about us. In meditating, we tend to think it's ok to speak it out once or twice, but true meditation is complete focus. Repeat them over and over until you have a calm in your spirit.
In our house, we have a Mission Statement hanging in our room that we repeat over and over so that our family is branded in our spirit, not just in our head and physically. This is done in the same way that they have done for centuries.
The family crest has deep meaning and are not ever the same. When you look at a family crest you see colors and symbols. Each having meaning
Improve Every Day
Improvement is something we are all doing and I know this because you're a part of society. You're living. If we are not improving then we are stagnant and not growing.
Goals we like to use are the ones just like weight loss goals. They set a target, we work at them until we reach those goals. Then we CELEBRATE our achievement. There are many ways to help us out in our marriage goal setting.
FIrst you have to look at where you're at in your marriage. Take a picture of the now in your marriage. Next, you'll want to look and find things you would like to weed out and you do this by not focussing on the negative but by taking all of your energy and loving what your goal is for your marriage.
For instance, you may love the way your spouse cooks dinner. Start praising that in your marriage. You may love how your spouse is good working with cars or computers, or the yard. Keep up on your praises in those things.Praise your spouse for the good! Keep your focus on what you want to grow. Ignore the negative ALWAYS! Click To Tweet
Mindset Meditation For Mental Clarity
Just as we focus on the positive only, we are to also meditate each day on those things that make us happy. If you're not sure what to meditate on, start out with affirmations of who you are.
Build yourself up…
Praying is a great way to build yourself up while talking to God. This also helps you get more clear on who you are if you're speaking out what God says you are.
Love Starts In The Spirit
As it is written: ?I have made you a father of many nations.? He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed?the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.Romans 4:17 NIV
So what should we have taken from this scripture? It's that we have the ability to call things out that have not yet come to pass in the physical. We can call things that are not in our physical eye, but if it's in our mind's eye (spirit) IT EXISTS!
One great thing to do to help your spirit life out as well as your relationship is to make a point to pray together on a regular basis — every 24 hours.
This might be a little too deep for this post but know we will be delving into this topic because we believe it will help your marriage and life.
Emotional hurts make for long days
When I lost my second wife to cancer, I literally felt myself tear in half. I felt naked and didn't know where to go. It's not uncommon to feel this way when a relationship is on its last legs. But I want you to know that you can take heart in this because you can still talk to your spouse. You can still pray for them to change for the better.
We are all spiritual beings with emotions and when those emotions are hurt our natural body response is to heal. I experienced this first hand in grieving the loss of my wife.
Our bodies will take from the other 4 quadrants of our life.
So if something has been damaged in our body quadrant, it will grab resources from the other 3 areas so that, in this case, our emotions can heal. This is why when someone is grieving, it's so hard to have any energy.
So how do we strengthen our emotions when we are at peace?
The first and most important thing you can do to heal your emotions is to Forgive.
More Fun In The Physical
We all know how the attraction started, right? It had to be the physical attraction.
So when was it a back burner thing to stop taking care of our physical body? I think it stems from when we received that one thing that our spouse gave and now there is nothing else to work for.
Guys and Gals, it's time to refocus on our health and be healthy for our spouse. It's not always the hot looks we can give to our spouse. It's also being healthy at a 100 percent clip that eases our spouses thoughts knowing you're healthy.
So if you have to go to the gym to work out or start eating healthier than you already may be eating. Do it. Set a goal to improve your love life and your health life.
