This weekend I had a blast as I joined my husband on stage. Together we discussed how marriage is a calling (based out of 1 Cor. 7:17-24). The sermon was called “Special Assignment.” We gave some practical steps to living out this calling in the context of our relationships.
We said I am CALLED to…
Carry your burdens- I want to help you carry you carry your burdens, not add to them.
Assume the best- I filter everything through the idea that my husband loves me and cares about me.
Live with contentment- I daily live content with who I am, who my spouse is and the blessings we have been given.
Let God be God- I focus on being the wife God has called me to be and trust that God will work on my spouse.
Encourage your strengths- I can literally pour courage into my spouse.
Do it anyway- Sometimes you don’t feel like it, but you have to do it anyway.
We seriously had such a great time. We also talked about finger snapping, peanut butter spoons, and canoeing. If you missed it, I hope you will go and listen. You can watch it later today on the Elevation Network, in our archive and on our podcast. And don’t forget, every sermon is also available on the Elevation App for your smart phone.
Have a great Monday!
