This thing called Faith & Marriage

The more I think, teach and share on the word Faith, I often question myself and ask, Maria, “Are you living what you are teaching?”

When I think of the word Faith three words come to mind, which I called are the 3m’s. Marriage, Motherhood & Ministry.

Marriage is a lifelong commitment. According to Websters dictionary it is the state of being united to a person in a relationship. Being married for twenty years and three children later, I found that I must constantly work and build on my relationship.
Date nights, worshipping together, open communication and intimacy are the by products of a healthy relationship.

There are times when I cannot see what God is doing in our Marriage but I must wait and believe by Faith that it will get better! God does not place a time limit on our waiting, he only requires that when we trust and believe, eventually it will come to pass.

The book of Hebrews 11:1 states “Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen”.

I’ve come to the conclusion that I cannot control my trials and tribulations from showing up but what I can control is my faith.
