Mid-Summer Give Away For Marriages


"I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect Your word."
Psalm 119:16





It is hard to believe that the summer season is nearly half over! I am hoping the summer is going slowly for our children. Remember being a child and it seemed like summer lasted forever?

Today, I am attending a Christian women's writer's conference. So, while I seek the Lord and brush up on my writing skills, we are having a Mid-Summer Give Away! If you've been reading this blog for any length of time, you know my passion for daily drinking from God's Word, both individually and as a couple. Soaking our hearts in His truth strengthens, grows, refreshes, encourages and challenges us. We must keep our feet to the fire, so to speak, of God's Word. We must exalt His name and His word in our hearts and marriages. "You have exalted above all things Your name and Your word." Psalm 138:2

A dear friend of mine, Shannon, recently gave me a wonderful devotional by Gary Thomas called "Devotions for A Sacred Marriage". This book of 52 devotionals is a companion to Gary Thomas’ bestselling work, Sacred Marriage. Jim and I are beginning to read this devotional together. And we have another copy to give away here on T2! Whether you read this book as a couple or by yourself, you will be pointed to God's word and thus be edified, convicted and refreshed.

We like to hear from our readers! Just leave us a comment and let us know: 1.) how we can pray for you; 2.) how God has showed His faithfulness in your marriage recently, or 3.) where you have enjoyed some vacation time this summer. The winner of the book will be announced in a few Fridays!!

Linger long with God's Word. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart...Do not be wise in your own eyes, fear the Lord...This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones." Proverbs 3:5, 7, 8

"Sanctify them by Your truth; Your word is Truth."
John 17:17

I'd love a chance for a copy of that book! My husband and I recently moved our family and it's been a tough transition. We'd love prayer for that. Thanks.

Becky: I am praying for you right now. May His perfect peace and provision fill your hearts. Seek Him in His Word. Cleave to one another. On my knees for you, Sharon

Acts 17:26 - He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live.

Oh I would love a chance to win this devotional!

My hubby and I will be celebrating our 18th anniversary this month. He travels for a living and our time together is minimal, however just this morning he got a phone call for a job that could have him home! We would love for you to join us in prayer for the will of God in this area.


Blessings!!

Sounds like a great book, Sharon, thanks for making a copy available for a lucky reader. Unfortunately, our schedule has not allowed away time together this summer. That will happen late this fall (Lord willing).
