We all want to have a marriage that thrives, don’t we? And yet one-third of Christian marriages end in divorce, a figure that is “statistically identical to that of non-born again adults” according to recent research from Barna.
What critical foundation are so many Christians missing in their marriage that leads to the demise of their primary relationship?
In the latest episode of CHRISTIAN PARENT/CRAZY WORLD, I have a painfully honest conversations with Josh and Katie Walters, authors of the brand new book New Marriage, Same Couple: Don’t Let Your Worst Days Be Your Last Days. After a devastating season involving an affair that rocked their marriage to the core, Josh and Katie discovered four Biblical mindsets that transformed their relationship and helped their marriage to thrive. Those mindsets form the acronym STAY:
S—Start with you.
T—Take quitting off the table.
A—Allow others to be a part of your story.
Y—Yield to God’s vision for your marriage.
The true testament of these mindsets is that they were applied to a dead marriage, and now that marriage is vibrant, alive, and helping to save other marriages. At some point, we have all allowed the enemy to sew seeds of discord and destruction into our relationships, but God has a plan to redeem what the enemy has stolen.
