Slippin and Sliding. . .

"Slippin and Sliding" is actually an old slang used many years ago which denotes a person not sure about their relationship in marriage, so they take an alternate route called "slippin and sliding". As we go into today's session, we highlight this uncertain behavior.

Of course we know that there's quite a bit of slippin and sliding in marriages today. Unsure of where you stand in your relationship and not taking the responsibility of finding out. Shame on you!
Even the Holy scriptures tell us in the book of James 1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways; so you see, it is important that we first know where we stand when it comes to our relationships concerning our marriages.
Many have taken the road to "slippin and sliding" simply because they don't feel and equal part in their marriage. As the old saying goes: birds of a feather, flock together. . . but that's not how God sees it. It's always that human instinct that tells a man or woman that they need to join with someone who thinks the way they think.; but what if your thinking is wrong? Certainly two wrongs still doesn't make things right.

There are far too many marriages today that end up in divorce simply because one or both parties now decide that neither are compatible. The truth of the matter is, it's a cop-out. Besides, how is it that you were compatible at the wedding ceremony and during the honeymoon and months later, possibly years, something changed. Now it's time to "slip and slide" to fulfill that part of your life that you feel is missing., and besides, slipin and sliding is so much easier. No long term commitment, no responsibilities, just one little Clause. . .just don't get caught!
I imagine by now you're wondering why such an attack on this behavior. Because it's not the way God would have you settle differences or inadequacies in your marriages. There is another way. Did you know that the same passion and enthusiasm that it takes to develop a relationship that ends up in marriage, is the same passion and enthusiasm necessary to maintain it? Having unresolved differences is not a license to slip and slide! Instead, having differences is the Workshop, if I may, for re-enforcing the bond of your marriage. Anything not worth working for is not worth having.
Before I close today, allow me to let you marriaged couples with unresolved differences in on a little secret., and it's not even from the Bible . . . .90% of the battle to work out your differences in your marriage henge's on this one thing. . . .the desire to correct it! Isn't that amazing? Everything else is academic. Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. You've got it. . . .it's God's word that resolves these issues.!
So if you must "Slip and Slide. . . .slip into the Holy scriptures, ( that's where your answers lay) and slide back into your relationship. This time, you're gonna love it.!

You are so Blessed!
