Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen (Ephesians 3:20-21).

The Good News and the Bad News of Your Own Marriage:

In light of the good news and the bad news in your own marriage, prayerfully consider the following questions:

1. What did "the good news" look like when you first began your marriage? When did "the bad news" first kick into your marriage and what did it look like?

2. How did you respond to your mate when the realities of "the bad news" first kicked into your marriage? In hindsight, how should you have responded?

3. As you consider the realities of "the bad news" as well as "the good news" in your marriage, what is God trying to teach you right now? Be specific. Pray about it.
