PREFACE OF "Writing The Vision, Making It Plain Understanding Marriage, Vision & Purpose
It is at the end of one chapter and course in my life and the beginning of
another that this book finally comes to fruition. It is also after many years of
experiences in life, love and matters of my heart that I write. After suffered
for nearly sixteen years a failed relationship of marriage, witnessed the failed
relationships of dear people close to me, and having observed so much from
within the body of Christ from various positions of ministry; I think that I may
qualify for the position that I take. As I write, the divorce rate is at a all time
high in the Body of Christ, and many marriages are on the brink of disaster.
Not only is the marriage on the rocks, it has gotten off of the rock, crawled
under the rock, and keeled over.
Why is this? What is happening? Why is there so much turmoil and
discontentment within our marital relationships?
It is not my endeavor to censure anyone’s actions, rewrite the Bible, set in
order other people lives, start another couple’s ministry, conduct another
marriage seminar, or begin another mass marketing campaign. It is enough
already. What I will attempt to do in the strength of Christ, and His anointing;
is address and bring inspiration to the intimate relationships between those
who are equally yoked together, and hope for those who are not. We will talk
about things that are taken for granted in marriage. We will talk about good
and bad traditions in marriage. We will talk about roles of both partners in the
marital relationship. We will talk about the things that you should know before
you marry a man or woman in ministry.
We will talk about intimacy and romance. We will talk about vision, and
giving birth to vision and ministry. We will attempt to straightforwardly address
every aspect of the relationship between two people who are the called
according to His purpose.
After all, how can two walk together except they agree and are one in
purpose, in love, in God?
