Hearing him pray reminds me that he’s a work in progress, just as I am.It reminds me that my role in his life is to come alongside him, encourage him and support him.
The essence of a true soul mate relationship is that of deep spiritual connection.
That was an unexpected bonus of being married to each other.
No one had ever told us we could experience this kind of intimacy in our relationship.
I've been working in youth ministry in some capacity for roughly eight years, and this is one of the most common questions I've fielded from young Christians: “How can (insert boyfriend/girlfriend) and I have a Christian dating relationship? ” As often I've heard it, I still love the the heart behind the question.
A couple of youngins' get to dating, and they want to “do it right.” They realize that God is concerned with every aspect of our lives, including our romantic involvements, so they've resolved to have a “Christian” dating relationship and sought guidance. Should we buy a devotional and go through it together? ” If the young man's of a theological bent, he shows up with a potential 10-week preaching series already outlined. As I already mentioned, couples often get this idea that to be truly “spiritual” they should start interweaving their spiritual lives into one.
