10. Lack of Spirituality
Slide 10 of 10
When a husband and wife seek God separately, they will find each other. Many marriages do not begin this way. Talk to a pastor or a marriage counselor. All hope is not lost, and it’s never too late to seek God first. His love for us remains the same. His desire for a relationship with each of us never fades. God alone knows the totality of our hearts, so it's important for both spouses to connect with God on their own and allow Him to minister in their marriage.
God does not abandon us. We complicate life for ourselves when we operate outside of His will, but He promises never to leave us.
Deuteronomy 31:6 promises, “I will never leave you; I will always be by your side”, and it is true of Jesus today.

Meg Bucher writes about everyday life within the love of Christ on her blog, http://sunnyand80.org. “Mom” is the most important calling on her life, next to encouraging others to seek Him first … authentically. A writer, dance mom, substitute teacher, youth worship leader/teacher and Bible Study leader, she can often be found having some kind of an adventure in the small little lake town where she resides with her husband of ten years, two daughters, and their Golden-doodle.
