memory verse logoEach week we post a scripture to challenge you to hide God’s Word in your heart. Commit it to memory, meditate on it and apply it to your life.

This week’s memory verse:

Lamentations 3:22-23

Because of the Lord’s faithful love we do not perish, for His mercies never end. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness!

Meditate and apply:

  1. God’s love for us isn’t dependent upon whether or not we feel His love. It isn’t upon what we do or don’t do. His love is faithful. Romans 5:8 says, “But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us!”
  2. Love isn’t just a “feeling” for God. 1 John 4:8 says that God is love. Love is part of His character and who He is.
  3. Because God is holy and righteous, and we are sinners that Isaiah describes as “something unclean” and he says that even “our righteous acts are like a polluted garment” (Isaiah 64:6), God could just strike us dead with our very first sin – but instead, His mercy never ends. It doesn’t run out. So God doesn’t expend all His mercy on my husband and then have none left for me. He doesn’t expend all His mercy on me this morning and have none left for this evening. His mercy never ends.
  4. God’s faithfulness to us is great even though our faithfulness to Him isn’t so great. We might make all kinds of promises to God – and at the time we make them, we have every intention of keeping them – but most often we keep them for a time and then before you know it, we slip back into our old ways again. We might have every intention of getting up early to read our Bible and pray, but when the alarm clock goes off, we turn it off without even opening an eye pull the covers back up and go back to sleep. Yet no matter how many mornings we do this, God faithfully and eagerly waits to spend time with us. Do you ever wonder if He is disappointed as we roll over and go back to sleep?  Even so, He will be there tomorrow morning waiting again – even if we disappoint Him…again.
  5. God is faithful to keep His promises – every one of them. Titus 1:2 tells us that “God cannot lie.” If He makes a promise, you can bet it will happen – just as He said. Joshua 23:14 says, “not one word has failed of all the good things that the LORD your God promised concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one of them has failed.” Check out this list of some of the promises that we have from God:
    • He promises eternal life for those who place their faith in Jesus – so we can know that we will have eternal life. 1 John 2:25
    • He promises a new heart. Ezekiel 36:26
    • He promises forgiveness. 1 John 1:9
    • He promised to give us the Holy Spirit. Luke 11:13
    • He promises us the fruit of the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-23
    • He promises the Holy Spirit will guide us and show us truth. John 16:13
    • He promises to meet our needs. Philippians 4:19
    • He promises to never withhold anything that is for our good. Psalm 84:11
    • He promises to give us wisdom. James 1:5
    • He promises to give us directions for the path we should take in life. Isaiah 30:21
    • He promises peace in the midst of life storms. Isaiah 26:3
    • He promises us victory over temptation. 1 Corinthians 10:13
    • He promises us refuge. Psalm 91:4-6
    • He promises us deliverance from fear and anxiety. Psalm 34:4
    • He promises to be with us and walk beside us when we experience difficult times. Psalm 138:7
    • He promises us that the dead will live again. John 5:28-29,  1 Thessalonians 4:15-18
    • He promises us that He will come again. John 14:2-3
    • He promises us an end to death, sorrow, and pain. Revelation 21:4

God is…love, unending mercy, and faithful.

news and events

Cover_mBOOKING NOW! Be a host site for the NEW God, Love & Marshmallow Wars Book Tour & Couples Conference:

This event helps couples understand why the daily activities found in the book will equip them to build a stronger marriage and the book provides them with 365 intentional activities to take what they learn at the event and apply it on a daily basis. Through the event, couples will discover the Biblical “why” behind the categories of activities found in the book and the “how” these activities are important to building a stronger marriage. Focus points of the event includes :

  • How memorizing scripture together and studying God’s Word together as they study, meditate and apply scriptures related to marriage and life issues will help them develop marriages that honor God.
  • Why utilizing fun conversation starters that spark meaningful conversations will keep interest alive as they continually learn new things about each other.
  • Why keeping romance alive is essential to intimacy and connectivity.
  • How making memories and working together builds relationship investment bonds and how these investment bonds can become the knots that keeps them together through the tough times.
  • How they can understand what they are or are not contributing to the marriage as well as how they might be contributing to problems or potential problems within the relationship through the use of targeted, intentional personal reflections
  • Why it is important that couples never stop dating and how group dates with Christian friends can be both an encouragement and accountability to their own relationship.

During the event, couples will be given an activity from each focus point to do together, making this event an interactive, fun, and engaging event with practical, hands-on learning. Unlike other couple events that are over when the event ends, couples who attend the GLMW event will be able to apply what they learn when utilizing the book on a daily basis for a year. Since the book is not dated, couples are able to reuse the activities year after year to continue being intentional in strengthening their relationship with each other and with God as they strive to live out God’s design for marriage every day.

Learn more about hosting this event at your church or conference site by clicking here.

About the book: The GLMW book contains 365 daily challenges for couples to strengthen their relationships to each other and with God. Couples will complete activities such as Scripture memory, conversation starters, relationship builders, learning about Biblical marriage, romance builders, personal reflections, and date ideas.
