10 Key Scriptures for Marriage
Have you ever just found yourself or your spouse struggling in a dark place where it seems no encouragement can reach you? The Bible helped me tremendously during my low and dark moments in marriage. I have learned that the most effective way to build a marriage on a solid foundation is by learning what God has to say. The Key to this is not only reading the scriptures but memorizing and applying them. I strongly believe these scriptures will have a tremendous impact on your life and in your marriage and provide great encouragement.
Grab a set of index cards, write these scriptures down and place them where you will see them daily in your home.

"For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
".......Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity."

6. PHILIPPIANS 4:8 (NIV) - THINK POSITIVE
" Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things."
Daily Confession: Lord, keep our thought life pure and honorable which will build our trust and guard our mind from addictive thought patterns. What we dwell on in our mind, will eventually come out in our attitude and actions.

8. EPHESIANS 5:21-29 - SUBMISSION IN A BELIEVER'S HOUSEHOLD
"Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as do the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church-".
Husbands and wives should not seek to control one another.
Daily Confession: Lord, may we joyfully submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. May we not seek to control one another.

"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up."
4:12 "Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."
Daily Confession: Lord, make our marriage a partnership and not a competition. Help us find positive ways to work together, especially during trying times. We are designed to complete and encourage one another.
10. PROVERBS 16:3 & JAMES 1:5 (NIV) - WISDOM AND GUIDANCE IN MONEY MANAGEMENT
"Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed."
"If any of you lack wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him."
Daily Confession: Lord, guide us in how you want our funds earned and used. Allow us to put our marriage above any individual concern and make wise decisions in all things.
