Love and Bless Out Loud!

Mine your words as if digging

for diamonds and gold.

Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!) Blessed (happy, fortunate to be envied) is the man who fears (reveres, worships) the Lord, who delights greatly in His commandments.

-Psalm 112:1, AMP

 You Can Have a Supernatural Powerful Marriage!

            We fuss, argue, nag, and express anger out loud–in front of our children! Many couples I’ve counseled admit that after an argument, many days and even weeks can go by in silence, remorse, and outright anger. Intimacy during times of bickering and disagreement is totally out of the question. One sleeps in bed and the other on the couch or in the spare bedroom. This demonic atmosphere, when it becomes a habit, is usually followed by the word divorce. We are told that one out of every two marriages ends up in divorce.1  That is your neighbor and my neighbor.

 

            Is this a common situation among many Christian couples? The answer is yes, and too often. We curse out loud instead of loving out loud! Our words and thoughts produce life or death. We choose! God gave us the freedom to choose good or evil, peace or worry, contentment or depression, healing or sickness, order or disorder, wealth or poverty, knowledge or illiteracy, and life or death. It is up to us.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who

Indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it (for death or life).

                                                                      -Proverbs 18:21, AMP

 

HOW DO WE LOVE LOUD?

·        We smile and laugh and have good sex.

·        We kiss and hug and embrace tenderly.

·        We show kindness and serve each other.

·        We go to church and pray together.

·        We play and surprise each other.

·        We listen to good music and shows together.

·        We say “I love you” often and sneak up on each other.

·        We don’t criticize or shame each other.

·        We listen to each other and communicate.

·        We accept and please each other.

·        We always say “I’m sorry” and forgive each other.

·        We love each other silently and out loud!

·        We never go to bed mad.

·        We don’t take arguments personally.

·        We never accuse each other.

·        We don’t hide anything from each other.

·        We never lie to each other.

·        We always find something to admire.

·        We love out loud and bless out loud!

·        We shop, eat, and clean house together.

·        We plan a vacation together.

·        We pray for our children together.

·        We go walking and driving together.

·        We treat each other to our favorite little things.

·        We sometimes bathe and massage each other.

            Loving out loud and loving unconditionally takes sacrifice and a want-to attitude and disposition. We can all do it if we try.
