A look at sexual union on the mystical side. Our left brain controls the right side and the right controls the left body. This is an X crossover. The same applies between man and woman, perpendicular to the X’s of the couple. We fit in with biblical injunctions about marital obligations. This is a short read.

Just a couple of days ago I felt the Spirit of God chastising me on this subject in this gentle but firm way, and it truly struck home. One of the consequences of being so busy recently with work is that I have truly been struggling to find time to commune with God. My times of prayer have felt more like I've talking at God rather than truly engaging in spiritual intimacy with Him.

This is why experience has taught me that deeply knowing and caring for one another is the right context for a relationship: perhaps above all, because in your pre-romantic interaction, trust has already had a chance to build up between you: you know one another really well, you can vouch for one another; each party trusts that the other person ultimately has their own best interests at heart.

"...Well one day it occurred to me that if we as humans are composed of body, soul (or mind, will, intellect, creativity, emotions) and spirit, and if as a couple you are to be "one flesh", then perhaps a deep and true love between a husband and wife would also reflect those three elements, that as a couple you would be deeply bound together and united in these three aspects..."
Talking About Vision

"...I love the idea of establishing mutual goals to work towards from the outset. I also love the idea of booking a retreat with your spouse, minus the kids, to go off and talk through these areas, and see how you are doing within the marriage. I guess it would also give both spouses the chance to air issues on their heart..."

1. No matter what the struggle is, God IS bigger. God is bigger than our sexuality, He is bigger than our sexual failings, He is bigger than the battles that we face. This means that any time we feel tempted to feel ovewhelmed, that this thing is bigger than us...we can hold on to the assurance that it cannot be bigger than God. 2. No matter what the struggle is, there MUST be a solution...

"...This post is not about selfishly going out to get married just for the sake of pushing forward in business life and dreams. I know many people do that. For instance some people get married at least in part for the sake of having a free personal assistant, housekeeper, cook, cleaner etc. I am not talking about that here in this post. Rather I am talking about why two ambitious people..."

"...Character is made up of things like: someone's commitment to honesty, to telling the truth, to integrity, to treating other people with courtesy and dignity. Character also includes things like determination to persevere through hard times, to keep doing what is right, even if this seems impossible.

"...This is the astonishing thing I have realised: without knowing I was doing it, I was measuring the amount of effort and sacrifice it would cost me to be truly concerned about him, to invest my prayers into his life, against his true character as a person, and I unconsciously decided that he was not worth it. It is not about the worth that he might have brought to my own life..."

"...The likelihood is that we share different values with different people to different extents. Stronger friendships will be possible with people who share the same central values, and who place the same emphases on these values...it is still possible to be friends with someone whose outlook in life is quite different, it is just that the friendship will naturally not have the same potential..."

“… When discussing with my sister, she made a very obvious point. Namely this: who after all, can afford to wait for two years, checking someone out, in case they might be suitable? Well this is the thing. If you’re in a church, and there are various eligible singles, then it’s not as if you would check one person out exclusively for two years, then angrily cross them off your list..."

“… By cultivating these dreams it is as if our hearts continue to yearn for perfect character and perfect communication as if we still lived in a perfect world. However, the point is that we don’t live in a perfect world and we never will...This is why these thoughts are dangerous – because they are so insistent, yet they make us yearn for something we can never have..."

"... I believe that the most powerful and effective time to work on your marriage is before you actually get married, which is the point at which things get “set in stone”. I believe that before you get married, you have the chance to define what you want from your marriage, and take the steps to sow the seeds for these things. However, you can always walk away, or rethink your choice..."..

Price: Free! Words: 2,080. Language: English. Published: May 5, 2019. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Christian Life / Love & Marriage, Nonfiction » Relationships & Family » Marriage
"...The “marriage maths" mentality is simply the understanding/belief that there are not enough good marital partners to go around. So when you come across someone who is maybe OK at best in terms of character, but maybe only OK, the temptation is to cling tightly onto them right unto marriage for fear that you will not find anyone else that is of a truly excellent standard..."

“… I always think to myself that if someone does not pray for themselves, then they will not pray for you – or they will not be able to sustain it. I am inclined to think that it is an individual rather than a number of people because I just don’t think I know so many truly serious Christians. And why would a number of people all randomly start praying for me, at the same time...?"

"... OK, so having said that I don't respect the idea of dropping everything to find a mate as early as possible, I definitely understand why women do this. OK, I may not be able to speak for all women, but if I were ever to adopt such behaviour, it would be so that I knew where I was in life, so that I would not have to run the risk of making big investments into big dreams..."

"Another reason why for me this whole issue is so crucial is because I also like to think of myself as being quite ambitious. I want to excel in different aspects of life. However, I also want to be married. Concerning my ambitions, I’ve already invested a lot, made a lot of sacrifices in different ways and I dream of greatness.
