6-Week Series: Against All Odds

Sermon Illustrations


A healthy marriage is a safe haven where we can relax and recuperate from the tensions of everyday life. We need to hear positive things from our mate. Just as I gathered together some friends to tell me what not to say to a spouse, so they also suggested what they would like to hear from their spouse.

"Good job!"

"You are wonderful."

"That was really great."

"You look gorgeous today.”

"I don’t feel complete without you.”

"I appreciate all the things you've done for me all these years."

"You come first in my life, before kids, career, friends, anything."

"I’m glad I married you."

"You’re the best friend I have."

"If I had to do it over again, I’d still marry you."

"I wanted you today."

"I missed you today."

"I couldn’t get you out of my mind today."

"It’s nice to wake up next to you.”

"I will always love you."

"I love to see your eyes sparkle when you smile."

"As always, you look good today."

"I trust you."

"I can always count on you."

"You make me feel so good."

"I’m so proud to be married to you."

"I'm sorry."

"I was wrong.”

"What would you like?"

"What is on your mind?"

"Let me just listen."

"You are so special."

"I can't imagine life without you."

"I wish I were a better partner."

"What can I do to help?"

"Pray for me."

"I'm praying for you today."

"I prize every moment we spend together."

"Thank you for loving me."

"Thank you for accepting me."

"Thank you for being my partner."

"You make every day brighter."
