Everybody Greg Laurie here. You're listening to the glory podcast and my objective is to deliver hopefully compelling practical insights and faith culture and current events. From a biblical perspective to find out more about our ministry. Just go to our website harvest.org so thanks for joining me for this podcast. I'm here with my beautiful wife Kathy. And guess what we just had a milestone we celebrated 47 years of marriage to remember easy when we first met I do I do, because I've forgotten everything I regret saying all the up-to-date nonmember data were was at tell them it was a Bible study in Long Beach.
We were both born in Longview are traveled.
I travel all over the world. You traveled all over the country drop and then we now at a Bible study in Long Beach and you are you are actually teaching.
I was in the member I was doing something you thought was very weird when I was speak well you need To show us what is and this was it. His leg never start time bouncing the synergy so I was probably around 19 or 20, maybe no. No you weren't 22 square, three years different and you think you are 18.
Just just graduated.
I had here. I had a beard. Yes you are very cool hippie. I can't thank you and very artistic so fast forward 47 years of marriage. So someone's watching right now, and maybe there getting married more they are married and it's not going so well.
What words of advice would you, Kathy Lori give to them. Openness and I would say don't put too much emphasis on your emotions and your feelings because our feelings will go up and down go on any given day, depending on the circumstances.
The weather what's happening inside of us physically, especially those of you who are women out there and emotions are very fickle and remember what it is that you valid and remember that if you put Christ at the center of your relationship you live by those valves.
On days when you feel like and days when you don't.
And having lived to 47 years of marriage I will say there there up their updates and their debt days are hard days in their e-business and up arrow down there right now were on were trending up, finding which means we were down earlier now know we we all we pretty much had a good evening to even medium and but I can remember back to early days in our first year argued a lot we did, we argued before we got married and we had about each other. We broke up three times and was an annual event. They were like mega breakups, like I never want to see you again. But then we could get a regular but we did have our disagreements when we were newlywed very much so and on. So I think we knew how to resolve an argument knew that we were to different people very different people very different personalities. Since the truck quite a bit office in our upbringing in our personality director and the opposites do attract.
But at the same time opposites do oftentimes collide. So you need to be able to resolve your differences in a good way not done not get all angry and said I never want to speak to you again. I could say that before you're married, you're married, you need to get over that and just work through these things. Burroughs once said the main gets a word she said the words in every married couple needs to learn to say I'm sorry I was wrong. Will you forgive me for many words, that is, I am sorry that three I was wrong. Six. Will you forgive me that's for so that makes 10 words, 10 words and then he said you could have three more words that will make a much better I love you so you know when you're harming the disagreement about to save him. Sorry I was wrong. Sometimes we apologize were having a conflict. People will use for projects on the real apology. I'm sorry if you think I was saying thus and so what I wasn't really saying that all that's on an apology you have to just own it and so learn how to disagree agreeably, you know. Five. A couple come in they want to get married awesome of you because under this agreement, yet they say no, but out of the office of the Grove disagreement go fight the fisticuffs verbal disagreement learn how to resolve it because that's going happen in America right it's right it's right to centers and a wonderful God. That's a somewhat similar knowledge that there is a process of sanctification that happens you know you're not here and you get married and it's perfect and after it son is challenging to be happily even after not happily ever after. If you apply God's word in his principles read your own mail is what I like to say you know another words will include verses to this about the Bible says you should submit to me some of the Lord will bump so she should love me as gross as the church is like regional male, don't quote the Bible to her what she's supposed to do what you're supposed to do and both of us had the same role in a sense, that is to take upon the on the nature of Jesus and health which the Holy Spirit dies and serve one another and led the one to another by wife submits as Christ submitted to the father and the husband loves laying his life down as Christ loved us and laid his light sojourns week we are both on emulating example of Chris right in our role everybody Greg Laurie here.
