    i think we should have thread for Christians to talk about the relationships in their lives - especially marriage relationships.

    Wow! Can I recommend reading The Shack? It is all about "relationship."

    Since marriage relationships are private, why would people share them with the whole world?

    Hi Enoch!
    I agree in general with sharing personal things but, I would find it refreshing to hear loving and good things about their relationships...esp. with a spouse. You hear so much that is derogatory about them-these do not HONOR their spouses. So, personal stuff is personal...period but, to share the good things? Indeed!

    What I've noticed is that generally on Christian forums family problems and issues are aired by people seeking advice (not what is good). Yet rarely (if ever) do they return to say "Thank you, that was very helpful in resolving the issue".

    Hmm.....gee you mean because it is such a close and intimate relationship? And it could be dragged through the mud by all the trolls and people who mistake telling others what is RIGHT with loving neighbor. Hmm......yeah sounds risky.

    Yet, this board is comprised of posts about our most intimate relationship with Jesus......

    I could have sworn there was a section for marrage. Maybie @HammerStone remembers.

    That is a sad commentary on Christian marriages. Sad also that they are included in the 50% divorce rate and, I recently heard that even 50% of Christian marriages end in divorce too.

    OK I will put forth a statement, So do not take it wrong! My Wife and I have been together for 35 years!!! the Clint Eastwood take on Marriage!!! it has been the Good, the Bad and the Ugly!!!! We have been through some Great time's, Some Bad time's and A Few Ugly times!!!!
    If any of you recall I asked for you-all to Pray for my Wife! It is kinda Important!!!! no matter what I do not know what will become of me without Her, I believe I will live! I do not know a Life without Her. My Wife Loves Life, and I do not mean Her life, but every living thing, every living thing is a life to her, even spiders, she will not let me kill a bug, if you know what I mean, she does let me kill rattle snakes, if they come into our space. Relationships! I have had ONE True Friend in my life, other than Our Savior! as far as the world goes only One true Friend! I have had many Acquaintances, BUT I believe that it takes a lifetime to make a True Friend. The one I mentioned! we grew up from dirty dippers together, and He lived across the street, unfortunately He was killed in a motorcycle accident at 25, I miss Him to this Day! He always said He would only live a Quarter Century- Go Figure!!!! As far as Family goes I am the Last Living in My Family, all brothers and one sister, and Parents have gone on! Thus Life!!!

    Yes, I am still praying for your wife...I have a close friend going through Chemotherapy ...and it is not to save her life by maybe give her five years..she has been told she is stage 4 and the cancer cannot be cured, just managed.

    So, when I pray for her, I can remember your wife, :)

    But, about your wife.
    A lump does not mean death. Your wife is believing to live..and she may well get her prayers answered. :)

    24years ago when I was in another city, I had a friend ( STILL DO TWO DECADES LATER!)
    She is not what I call 'a great woman of faith'.
    She asked us to pray about a lump she had on the left side of her breast.

    Two months later she was freaked out about it.
    She unbuttoned her blouse and said 'look' and feel it.
    On her breast almost under her arm was a huge hard lump.
    She had not gone to the doctor, just her and her husband praying.

    I prayed for her..and others prayed for her.
    A year later we were at a wedding...I said to her.
    What happened about the lump?
    She actually said " What lump?"
    I reminded her.
    She said .. " Oh right, I had forgotten about that" Then she went on to say that one night while in bed her husband got mad at the devil...put his hand on the lump and yelled - "In the name of Jesus get out of here and never come back" After that, she said she just wouldn't think any more about the lump.

    Obviously she had totally forgot about it! :D
    And that wedding was 25 years ago when I last saw her...it was my daughters wedding.
    Jean is still alive and well and is 89 this year!

    Just believe with your wife. And take authority over the work of the Enemy.

    Bless you...Helen

    This has become true for me as well @Truth . Even though I do belong to a local body, my main fellowship is on this very forum.
    I will also pray for your wife Cheryl, we need to pray always, especially for our brothers and sisters in Christ.
    God bless you and yours!
