Hey, Couples! Its the season of joy, love and pleasant surprises. it’s not the time to fight about what to can’t afford to buy, how to show off and oppress others this season. So, it’s time to rejuvenate and collaborate with your spouse for the future.

The new year is just around the corner. Fasten your seat belt, it’s time to fly high. Aim for the best, prepare for great happenings in the new year and pray for the fulfilment of God’s promises.

Here below are beautiful suggestions for couples this yuletide and to make the holiday worthwhile.

1. A Heart of Gratitude

Psalm 103:2 says “Bless the Lord, o my soul and forget not all His benefits.”

You may not have everything now but you have somethings, gratitude is an attitude you must cultivate. God has been faithful to your family. You need to acknowledge Him as the doer of every good thing your family has enjoyed from January to December. What He is yet to do will happen at His time. Now as a couple, show your gratitude to God for His provision, protection, preservation, promotion and progression. Things may be tight for others but your case has been different. God has been showing up to cover your nakedness and put a smile on your face. Wouldn’t you say thank you JESUS?

2. Appreciate Each Other

Hmm, it seems you understand your spouse. It seems you understand the leadership role and followership support in your union. That is not ordinary, God is really helping ypu both. You walk together in unity, your wife cooks and you enjoy the meal, your husband never rejects the meal. Your spouse contributed immensely to every of your achievement this year, you support each other spiritually, finanacially, emotionally etc. If only you can be sincere, your spouse deserves your appreciation, you must create time this season  to consciously appreciate yourselves for even the tiniest thing and the biggest thing you have done for each other. Philippians 2:3

Cook special meal this season, create a loving and memorable atmosphere for your spouse and children.

Remember the less privileged and needy this season, don’t eat alone, reach out to others

3. Path of Forgiveness

Yeah, I know there might have been some shortcomings, mistakes, oversight etc. in the course of the year. You have your own share of it. None of you is exonerated. In the spirit of humility, just approach your spouse to apologise sincerely. No blame games now; no more references to old issues and hurts. Tear the catalogue of offence and open the records of good deeds, its time to move forward. Ephesians 4:32

4. Plan your expenses this season and prepare Ahead for the New Year

You need financial intelligence, there is high templation on finances, be prudent on financial matters, strike a balance between stinginess and extravagancy, no impulse purchase, be mindful of school fees, house rent and other bills ahead, God is your sufficiency but be wise.

There should be a family vision for the New Year. Individual goals need to be discussed and harmonised too. It’s time to revitalise, review all strategies of last Year and re-strategise for the future. The year 2019 will deliver the best unto you in all ramifications in Jesus name. Luke 14:28-30

5. Pray Earnestly 

Prayer does wonders. Many plans and promises of God are enforced for fulfilment in the place of intercession. The devil hates anything good and godly, he does not want unity in marriage especially in the place of prayer. As a couple you must be intentional about praying together and bring into manifestation all your expectations. You need to pocket the new year supernaturally through the power of God by praying.

Deut 11:12 A land which the LORD thy God careth for: the eyes of the LORD thy God [are] always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year.

6. Rejuvenate your love affair

Love is like a seedling, it must be properly nurtured to grow. Where there is neglect, you need to reconnect back to your spouse, mend the crack in the wall of your home, stop the drifting and start bonding. Marriage is a beautiful journey of lovers, go to the arsenal of your heart and bring out the best part of you to demonstrate how much you love your spouse and value your relationship. You can’t go alone, so stop your solo life and reconnect with your lover. Revelation 2:5

7. Meditation 

The spiritual digestion process of a spiritual meal is through the power of meditation. You need to deploy this tool in moving your marriage forward. Meditate on divine instructions stated in the Bible for both husband and wife. Meditate on good things about your spouse and family. Let not your heart be troubled, stop limiting yourself by illuminating on your so-called limiting factors. Your God is able, so you are able.

Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things. 2 Timothy 2:7

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year

WE LOVE YOUR FAMILY
