Hi, I am writing because I was invited to a marriage seminar you are holding on the 1st august at parramatta Christian centre. Unfortunately I cannot attend although I wish my wide and I could.I am recently married, in my youth, and have experienced immense changes over the last few months. I feel as though I failed the trials and tests of marriage, and looking back, I have got some very strong ideas as to why this is the case. To name a few, my generation of self indulgence and satisfaction, instant gratification, selfishness (we have not really seen hard times) and immaturity have led me to stray from God's intention and plan for my marriage. This culminated in my behaviour, of prioritising myself over my wife, and has led us to drift apart.It's not all bad news, I now have a renewed focus in prayer and God as the centre-piece of my marriage. As a husband I realise that my single greatest objective is to ensure that I bring my wife closer to God, and focus on building our faith. Doing so then makes it easier to avoid the aspects of my life that have taken over my faith and damaged my relationship with my wife (alcohol, television, spending time away from my wife and from my faith).Anyway, I can go on and on, and I'd love to teach people what I have learnt in the last few months. I hope I cab recover from the darkness I have placed my marriage in, but I have faith that God will deliver and ultimately repair and strengthen marriage. It's a shame I cannot make it to the seminar, if you run any such similar seminar, I would be very keen to attend.Rosh. firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for sharing Rosh. Perhaps we can still catch up when I am in Sydney next week?I hope that you and you wife are able to have a fulfilling and enriching life together and that God does indeed allow and enable you to share what you have learned with many others.Every blessing.Andrew Corbett.
