Marriage Meditation: The Wind Beneath Our Wings

Wisdom From the World

True prayer is neither a mere mental exercise nor a vocal performance. It is deeper than that-it is a spiritual transaction with the Creator of Heaven and Earth.” Charles Spurgeon

“Prayer opens the heart to God, and it is the means by which the soul, though empty is filled by God.” John Buchan

“About four days a week, I do pretty good at having a morning prayer time. But even at that, it is a rambling sort of thing. What I have learned to do better is to try to keep my mind turned towards God and my ear inclined towards God throughout the day, and I think I am doing better at that, but I’ve got a long way to go.” Max Lucado

Wisdom From the Word

“So this is my prayer: that your love will flourish and that you will not only love much, but well. Learn to love appropriately. You need to use your head and test your feelings so that your love is sincere and intelligent, not sentimental gush. Live a lover’s life, circumspect and exemplary, a life Jesus Christ will be proud of: bountiful in fruits from the soul, making Jesus Christ attractive to all, getting everyone involved in the glory and praise of God.” Philippians 1:9-11 (The Message)

“Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life… Don’t be misled: No one makes a fool of God. What a person plants, he will harvest…So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now therefore every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith.” Ephesians 6:1-5,7,9-10 (The Message)

Keep Me Real, Lord!

Lord, what I want to do, I don’t do, and what I don’t want to do, I do. Help me to rest in your unchanging grace. Help me to give myself grace when I fail and help me to co-operate with the true change agent, the Holy Spirit. Transform me so that I bring the healthiest possible self to my partner. Amen.”
