You've somehow managed to land right here at the 30 Day Marriage Challenge. I don't know you, and I don't know why you're here. Maybe you have an amazing marriage. Maybe you feel like your marriage is dead. Maybe you are where I was a few years ago and you think that it's too late for your marriage relationship to be restored. Wherever you are, you are not alone. Many husbands and wives have walked in your shoes. The only thing I ask of you is that you are willing to try something different. You don't have to have any hope left, you don't have to believe that this will work, you just have to be willing to try something new.
My goal for this series is to post at least once a day. I want to share ideas with you that will draw you closer to your mate. I have lived through the fire of divorce and I know how much pain, resentment, and distrust can destroy a relationship. I also know that God can transform a broken marriage. He can take those ashes of the marriage that has burned to the ground, and build something new, something powerful, and something amazing.
I am so glad that you found this series, and I will be praying for you as you embark on this 30 Day Marriage Challenge.
Mission#1 of the 30 Day Marriage Challenge:
While this may seem simple...or maybe even crazy, this has been some of the best advice I have ever received. Choosing to have sex with your spouse every day for 30 days is a huge commitment. There will be days that you are tired, or maybe days that the last thing you want to do is have sex. Regardless of what your excuses are, make it your goal to stick to this commitment.
Let's get honest here. Sex is one of the most powerful parts of your marriage relationship. Sex can be used as a weapon or it can be used to bring healing and closeness. Sex has become tarnished, but it wasn't meant to be that way.
If you are a believer, and even if you aren't I highly recommend reading The Song of Solomon (either together as a couple or by youself). Mediate on what this couple has to say about each other. Consider the things in your own marriage that hinder your sexual relationship. Is it lack of trust? Anger? Pain? What is it about your marriage relationship that causes you to disregard sex or not enjoy it the way you should?
There is so much I could write about regarding sex in marriage, but I will save that for some of the other 30 Day Marriage Challenge posts.
