This is an inspirational Christian book about the challenges and rewards of marriage.
Somewhere beneath the triumphs, tribulations, successes, disappointments, hopes, and hurts of marriage lies the promises we made to our spouse. We promised love, fidelity, respect, through sickness and in health. This book is about one average guy of average means who has struggled to keep those promises and failed on many occasions. It’s a glimpse into the heart of a Christian soldier who fights for his marriage with no basic training. To be sure the battle is not flesh and blood but against powers and principalities of a world set against God’s purpose for marriage. This book is a journey of self-discovery and a transparent model of what he faces everyday as a husband. Read closely and honestly, and perhaps discover that this book is about you.
But we may feel a nagging frustration that that we are not getting the benefits we could out of marriage. This is because we are not actively relying on God to sustain our level of service. Certainly God gets the glory. He is the reason for our every breath, but do we acknowledge him often enough? Do we exercise our faith to perform in our marriage? If not, our results are unsatisfactory.
It is only through the conscious, consistent exercise of our faith that the true potential for marriage will be reached. This means operating at a level of service as a husband, wife, mother, father that would be impossible to sustain but for increased reliance on the one who sustains us.
