Marriage Is A Minefield?

Andrew Peterson has it right. Many marriages begin in a whirlwind of romance and excitement, but end in the face of the difficult realities that show up, eventually, in all relationships. Minefields don’t mean you have to flee the battlefield, our mission is to thrive despite the difficulties and to LOVE so selflessly that the we diffuse the bombs that surround us.

Over time, we’ll explore this kind of selfless love here at Growing In Grace Today–that’s really why we’re here. I’m talking getting our hands dirty, deep down in the roots of what often goes wrong in our relationships. Are you ready for a merengue in the minefield?

Happy Valentine’s Day!

On this day of “love”, let’s remember what love is…

Love is…patient, kind, It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. Love always protects. Love always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (1 Cor 13:4-7 NIV)

We like the Love Believes twitter feed slogan, “Love Believes, hopes, endures, never dies…”

Follow @LoveBelieves on twitter.

And, enjoy time with your Valentine today!

Hello world!

Welcome to Growing In Grace Today.

The idea for this blog has been in my heart for quite some time. I’m amazed at what God is doing in my heart and have been looking for the best way to share it with others. Over the past two years, I’ve been journaling insights God’s given me each day and in the coming weeks and months, in addition to sharing what God’s doing “today”, I’ll be sharing some of what God’s done leading up to today.

My prayer is that God will use this ministry to grow HIS grace in YOUR life, and in lives everywhere. I strongly encourage you to help make this a community and share what God’s putting on YOUR heart today, as well!

Thanks and God Bless you!

Matt
