The right dancing shoes make a big difference in the look of ballroom dance. Shoes that are too small, uncomfortable, too high or with no support makes for a long night of dancing. We have experienced many of these. Your feet are your foundation for dancing. It takes a while to find the right shoe for a smooth looking dance!
We had a couple taking our dance class mention that because of health issues, they could not feel their feet. Another dancer had a time with his shoes never fitting well. Yes, this is a problem.
In our marriage we need a solid foundation to make it through the ups and downs of this world. Maybe in this last year you have experienced some. We sure have! It can be difficult to keep our marriage strong with so many trials.
How do we build this foundation? The world surely does not have the answer. It looks hopeless. The only trustworthy foundation is God’s Word. Reading it, meditating on it, praying it and then letting it lead us through life’s difficulties. If there is no foundation, we will sink in the sand. And as a married couple, it takes the two of us. Sometimes, one of us may not be strong. The other can encourage, be strong and lovingly get us both through a difficult time.
Building a strong foundation takes time and work. It will not come by watching the nightly news or checking social media. We don’t want to wait until a big trail comes before we start building a firm foundation.
The bad news of a recent day made both of us stressed, not pleasant and in a bad mood. Dan came to me, kissed me and said, “ We need each other to get through this.”
Pray and read God’s Word together. It will do wonders in your marriage.
God’s Word- Matthew 7:24-27 “24 Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. 25 Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. 26 But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. 27 When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”(NLT)
