I am sure you know someone who is divorced, or is the child of a divorced family. The pain runs deep and has profound negative effects on our society. Many couples, who may not have divorced due to various reasons (finances, children) are still in a lot of pain and have not found a way to live marriage and experience the joy that God desires for them.
How many people do you know who view their marriage as a holy union between Man and Woman? If you are married, do you have joy in your marriage? Do you know what God’s plan is for marriage?
What I have found is that most couples who are married (or living together these days), try to live marriage as the popular culture says that they should. You may be familiar with the cultural plan for marriage, get married in your 30s, have two incomes for a period of time so you can get all the things you desire (nice house – maybe two, boat, cars, etc), take some trips to the cool places in the world, then have a couple of kids (one boy and one girl). This is the plan society has for the perfect marriage, although if this plan doesn’t bring you happiness, then get a divorce and find the right soul mate and try again.
Does this sound familiar? It does to me, I know many couples who have tried to find happiness in this model only to end up miserable.
But don’t lose hope, Greg and Julie Alexander ( Founders and Co-directors of the Alexander House) have devoted their lives to painting a different plan, the plan that God has for Marriage.
Check out their website and consider supporting their ministry by prayer and financial support. They have had much success and it is evident to me that God has placed them here to spread the good news about Marriage to our hurting society. Please consider making a donation today, Greg and Julie gave up everything eleven years ago and responded to God’s call to follow him, they need our support to carry out the work that God has called them to do.
