It is an amazing capacity.

It is an amazing capacity.

The ability to pause, think, review and imagine something fresh and new.

Yet, it is a hard thing to ever get around to doing.

Too much is always going on. Daily demands and routines, stresses and even good opportunities often make us too busy and too tired to do anything proactive.

Usually something has to break before it gets the attention it deserves.

This Sunday at the Gathering Church we will continue a Reset series by looking at the area of marriage. Not everyone is married but the principles that can shape this relationship can be applied everywhere.

Galatians 5:16-26 will be our guide, the compelling description about how to live in the power of God’s Spirit. It says we are conflicted between the flesh and the Spirit.

Wow, is that ever true when it comes to being married.

Why is it so hard to consistently express love, joy, peace, patience and the other outcomes of the Spirit in our marriages?

How do we develop habits of renewal and repair and resist cruise-control?

What can we do if our marriage has died or become toxic?

How does God give us the ability to build growing marriages that get stronger and stronger?

If you have a friend who is struggling with their marriage, invite them.

We are not going to spend any time piling on guilt or shame about the struggles we all experience.

Remember, the Spirit’s goal is to produce love, joy and peace in our marriages.

I hope to see you this Sunday.
