God Is In These Bible Stories!

This morning, we dug into the Bible to see how God was at work in the stories in the Old and New Testament. We specifically talked about creation, Noah and the Ark, Joshua and the battle of Jericho, David and Goliath, the fiery furnace in the book of Daniel, Daniel in the lion’s den, Jonah and the Whale, the birth of Christ, Jesus feeding the 5,000 men, and the crucifixion and resurrection.

God was present from the very beginning when he created the world and Adam and Eve, and we know that he’s still with us today! We want to hear how God is in your story! Tomorrow we’re dedicating the show for a time of prayer, praise, and sharing testimonies. Call us starting at 6am to share with us! Call our office line 740-392-9090 option #1 to talk to us.

Do you need a Marriage Detox?

Today on The Morning Thing, Marcy shared some insight on marriage from FamilyLife.

Have you ever done a detox?
The purpose is to take the bad stuff OUT, so that the GOOD stuff can help improve your body and your overall health.

Have you ever thought about a Marriage Detox?

Click HERE to read the full devotional from Janel Breitenstein.

What could a marriage detox look like?

Nix the junk food. 

  • Maybe it’s time for a social media fast or from criticism and divisive thoughts (1 Peter 3:8). 
  • It could be time to finally seek help for that porn problem. 
  • Perhaps you need to burn the romance novels, or distance yourself from a friend who doesn’t encourage you in your marriage.
  • You may need to relentlessly purge your home of possessions that fool you with false satisfaction, drawing you away from God and each other.

Snack on whole foods.

What would it look like to feed your marriage nutritiously and without contaminants, getting back to the basics? 

  • Could it involve reading the Word briefly together or praying together?
  • Would it be beneficial to review what media you consume together? 
  • Is it time to surround yourselves with a supportive community, rather than living on a marital island?

Get some air.

The overwhelmed, overcommitted, exhausted version of the two of you—and your marriage—isn’t one where any marriage thrives or heals. It’s hard to clear the byproducts, so to speak, of irritability, resentment, and feeling used or unseen. What’s one thing you could stand to clear from your schedule?

Get off the couch.

It could be time for your family to burn some of its energy for purposes beyond itself. After all, as Proverbs teaches us, when we refresh others, we will be refreshed ourselves (Proverbs 11:25).

Read on for ways to avoid letting social media ruin your marriage.
