What are your plans? This is a common question before we start on a journey. Whether it is our vocation or our vacation, we usually do not set out without mapping the way.
It gives us comfort to know what lies ahead. In fact there are great apps now that tell you what is up ahead and how to avoid certain situations.
While there aren’t any apps like this for our marriage journey there is a map. His word and His invitation to stay connected are vital to staying on the path in our marriage.
Just like in life, our marriage will go through transitional periods. There are normal hills and valleys and if we can manage these universal stormy periods we usually come out the other side with greater love and commitment to our spouse.
In this episode I talk with Amanda Davison from A Wife Like Me.
Amanda shares her story of wanting to leave her marriage and the invitation God gave her to connect deeper with Him and her husband.
We will discuss –
- Four reasons that couples experience destructive communication
- How to have a plan before going into hard seasons or transition
- How the concept of obedience actually empowers us
Amanda’s devotional is like having a marriage map, it will help set the course. We do not know our future, but it is better to have a plan on how we can handle future obstacles
How is God inviting you to practice connection with your spouse?
I would love to hear your thoughts, stories or Ah Ha moments from today’s message.

Wife, you are loved, and there is nothing you can do about it.
