When challenges come, married couples can make a conscious choice to look to God instead of falling under pressure, being fearful of the future or blaming each other. 

“Have I not commanded you? Be
strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for
the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” — Joshua 1:9

  • What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?
  • Are you
    facing any challenges or uncertainties that make you feel anxious or
    scared?
  • How is God asking us to step out and be courageous
    together?

As new challenges arise, we must decide how we will
respond. Will we fall under the pressure, be fearful of the future or
blame our spouse? Or will we turn to God, who is present in every
situation? Let’s choose to look to God. Trusting Him makes us stronger,
and He is the One who emboldens us to be courageous.
