I recently received this Facebook message from Sylvia:
"Hi Kurt, Can you please do a program on, "Holding onto each other when times are tough"?
As a single woman, I look forward to getting married someday.
When I see so many Christian couples giving up on each other, I ask myself these questions:
Why am I praying and looking forward to marriage?
Am I asking for trouble?
It discourages me big time.
There are times I have said, "God if this is what marriage is all about, then I don't want any part of it."
But when I see couples who are going through difficult circumstances, and are still holding on to each other, that gives me hope. It builds my faith and I learn from them.
I would like to hear stories of Christian couples who are facing or have faced challenging times and are still holding on to their faith and each other.
I believe these stories will help not only singles looking forward to marriage, but also couples who are at a point of giving up."
Got a story to share?
"Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up." (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10)
