Thinking Big For Your Marriage

Thinking Big For Your Marriage Is Not Magic by Angie Lewis

Big thinkers usually have tons of ideas floating around inside their heads. Some big thinkers don't produce anything with their ideas, while others go for it with gusto. Is there really magic involved in thinking big or can anyone do it?

People don't possess magic, they posses character and determination. There is no magic involved in succeeding in life or having a great marriage. Anyone can do it if they put their heart and soul into it. The magic David Schwartz refers to in his book, The Magic of Thinking Big is the magic of realizing the power of God within you and applying that power into your life. Anyone can have determination, commitment, and ambition, but a lot of people don't set their minds on those things and so never reach their aspirations.

Have you ever wondered why most corporate millionaires can't seem to stay married for long? Does it mean they do not have character? It may be in their heart to have determination and commitment to making lots of money but they have no dedication for marriage. It is the same way with celebrities. They think big only to the extent of what they actually want out of life. Most celebrities have this strong need to be in the limelight and that is why they are in show business. Their focus is greatly limited to themselves. Loving and caring for another is a difficult thing for them.

Corporate big wheels aren't focused on the logistics of keeping a relationship together; it is the furthest thing from their mind. Their number one priority is making more money, even though they don't need it. It is an addiction of desire to want more than you would ever need or spend in a lifetime. Seventy five million dollars is not enough for these kind of big thinkers. Maybe ten billion will do the trick. They strive to make more and more money, while their other half is resentful, lonely and unloved. They will never have the satisfaction of knowing what real abundance in life really is, or to feel the satisfaction of contentment in their soul.

If you want a great marriage, you have to think big for it too! But marriage needs more than just being a big thinker. Marriage needs two big thinkers who are willing to sacrifice for each other. Only those who apply the power of God into their life can do that.We all have the power to accept God's truth for our marriage and yet, most people never realize the spiritual potential within them. We become big thinkers and we become the very best we can be when we have accepted the fruit of the Spirit into our life. It is really that simple. There is no magic involved.

The fruits of the spirit are the abundance of life. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. (Galatians 5:22)Wherever you put your heart and soul, there is where your abundance will lie.

One Flesh

Our church has been doing a series on Marriage Relationships. You can listen to the messages online - I really urge you to!

My husband and I sit and poke each other throughout almost every sermon. We smile, sometimes laugh - and sometimes cry at the very good points being made during this series.

Check it out for yourselves...
