The Bridge Between Us
Becoming One in Marriage
Dr. Rick D. Merritt
In a world flooded with distresses like divorce, father absence, rampant sexual abuse, anxiety, and depression, there seems to be an epidemic of escapism through drugs, alcohol, consumerism, sex, violence, and suicide.
Our differences aren't meant to alienate us
But they are meant to bring us closer together
We discover we're really not that different
But we all have the same universal needs
Love, Acceptance, Approval,
Communication, and Touch
We can have by cultivation; a deeper spiritual, sexual,
and emotional intimacy in marriage that evolves
over the course of a lifetime.
Life-long marital satisfaction requires that
two committed people have purposed in their hearts
to have a great marriage, and never give up
on the grace of God to see it through.
