Being in a healthy Godly relationship is something that I cherish. My husband and I have our faults, but we both try to live to be like Christ as much as possible. When we first got married, I did not know the first thing about what the Bible had to say about relationships. I was 19 when I got married, and over the last 10+ years, things have become clear. Now that I have almost a decade of marriage under my belt, I have picked up some verses that help us everyday of our marriage.
Genesis 2:18 - Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him."
I love this verse! It’s showing us that being in the right relationship is a GOOD THING and something that God has blessed you with.
Romans 12: 9-10 - "Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor."
Loving your spouse or significant other is something God calls you to do. Let it be genuine and good.
Mark 10:9- "What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate."
How true is this? If God brought you to your spouse, don’t let others get in the way! This is a great verse to help focus on your marriage for the long haul.
Jeremiah 29:11 - "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."
This is one of my favorite verses of all time, but especially for relationships. God knows the plans He has for you, especially when it comes to the relationship you are in.
Proverbs 31: 30 - "Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised."
When it comes down to things like beauty and charm, they are nice – but a woman who “fears” the Lord is to be praised. This goes both ways for a man as well. A relationship with God is of the most value to you when choosing a mate.
