I heard a story and i don’t know how true it is; but it left a lasting impression on me –
It’s a story of the former president of USA Barrack Obama not attending a meeting because he had already scheduled time for his wife cum family.

This brings us to today’s blog:
It’s a new year and most of us have goals that are important and require time, skill and a lot of sacrifice. The race of life is on and nobody wants to fail but i want to ask you an important question-
In your goal list is marriage in it?

And if marriage is in it; have you allocated a specific time for bonding, skill acquisition and the sacrifice it will entail?

Rich says…
Remember you are fighting on the same side with your spouse for your marriage. It is a good fight with great rewards.
So allocate time daily for your marriage and stick to it!

Be rest assured, if your marriage is not on the goal list – you have already lost your marriage!

In a day our work demands 8hours, children, family, friends, social media usually takes another 5hours – 6hours, we sleep for another 6hours – 7hours, we take our bath and eat for another 2hours giving us a total of 22hours – 23hours already used.

What this tells us is that daily we must fight for our marriage by including it in the goals and allocate daily/specific time to it.

So i ask you again – “will you be intentional about fighting for your marriage; as time is the exchange currency of our dreams”.
