Looking forward
by David Chadwick

Here is a tip if you want to be totally ineffective living this life. Don’t live in the future. Live in the past. Live in deep regrets. Live without hope.

You need to know there is some value in living in the past. You can learn from your mistakes. You can receive God’s forgiveness. You can change your present behavior because you live in the past.

But the past is a painful place in which to live if you stay there. It’s much wiser to live in the future. After all, the future will one day become your present.

You’re either looking backward or forward. How beautiful it is to look forward while also being content with the moment: the smile of your spouse, the hug of your kids, or the color in the sunset.

Rest assured: if you remain in the past, you can never affect your future! Only ineffective people live in the past.


Discover God’s path to a better marriage

A key to making your marriage the best it can be isn’t a secret. God commands spouses to give honor to one another – and blesses them for doing so!

David Chadwick and his wife, Marilynn, unpack the biblical meaning of honor in these two special books, Eight Great Ways to Honor Your Husband and Eight Great Ways to Honor Your Wife.

You’ll find humor, humility and a passion for Christ that will inspire you to love your spouse in new ways that:

  • Reignite the “spark” you remember
  • Deepen trust and the intimacy you long for
  • Connect you to God’s original and joy-filled intent for marriage

Both books are our way of saying thanks for your gift below to help share Jesus and the life-changing new perspective He gives.

Thank you so much for your support today – and may you find new reason for hope as He helps you improve your marriage!
