Married for Life

Two weeks ago, we got a text from Bea telling us that the next Marriage Ministry Inc (MMI) seminar would be on January 28. She asked if we were still interested in joining it. We readily confirmed our attendance. We have been waiting for the opportunity since 2004. Though Roney thinks that our devotions may be enough, i still believe that a little more learning would not hurt.

Roney and i read our Couple's Devotional Bible every morning. It has been a great help in dealing with our problems, differences and even blessings. We know that God takes active participation in our marriage because whenever we are in a quandary, whether among ourselves or with external factors, the Bible verses that we read for the day provide apt solutions. It's really amazing whenever we experience this kind of interaction with God; we feel His presence and concern on our marriage.

We were also blessed that our pastor agreed to mentor us for sometime. Those were the times when we were still undergoing tremendous adjustments. And, without our pastor's guidance and wisdom, we would not have reached this far. He made us realize and understand Christ's teachings. And although, some were bitter pills, we swallowed our pride and focused on the marriage.

We are so grateful to God because He makes good His promises. We have prayed that the Lord would give us the desires of our heart. It means that whatever desires we would have be given by God. And so far, all the plans that we have laid out are coming to fulfillment. It's not easy, but we do know that whatever happens, we have God on our side. And if He is with us, who can be against us?
