Welcome to For This Reason Marriage Ministries:

We are Pastors Fred & Norma Aguilar and we are so excited to have you be a part of this powerful marriage ministry!  We have made it our mission to help couples to stay in love forever and revive their marriages.  We provide Spirit-filled, Christ-centered training and counseling "couple to couple" in the home.....where God intended His presence to abide as the foundation of our marriages. The Word of God is clear "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh." Gen 2:24

Our Marriage Ministry has helped countless thousands of married couples by ministering Jesus' reconciling power to the separated, the divorced, the unsaved, broken families and couples that are hurting. The proof of our ministry is in the countless married couples lives we have had the privilege to help and the husbands and wives standing for their marriage today despite their friends, family and even brothers and sisters in the Lord telling them to divorce. Divorce is not the answer and we teach couples how to reconcile, stand and believe that nothing is too great for our GOD and how to be "In Love Forever".

The biblical concept of marriage is that marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman to live together in mutual love and respect for the glory of God, until death do them part.  Marriage is not about us, so it is not about me.  It is about God and His kingdom.  God ordained marriage as the foundational unit of society and everything is built on marriage.  Marriage, done God's way, creates the safest and best environment in which to rear children and covenant principles of marriage are based on steadfast love - looking out for the interest of each other.  They are about seeking to encourage and support each other, throughout life not just when you feel like being in the covenant, because you are "in the covenant" whether you feel like it or not and so we teach to please the Lord with your love, care and commitment to Him and to your spouse.

Thank you for visiting inloveforever.org. It is our sincere desire to bring hope to your marriage situation regardless the circumstances! Below you will find a powerful weekly teaching on covenant marriage done Gods way.

Alone Together-
 
"The Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." Genesis 2:18
 
Just because you're married, it doesn't mean that you don't suffer from loneliness. Couples are so busy with various aspects of making life work for them that they often forget to emotionally connect and support each other. As a result, some of the loneliest people happen to be married.
 
If you (or someone you know) are in that place, perhaps the following might help in some way. Ask anyone why they got married and, once they get past 'because we were in love' (which I'm not knocking), they will talk about marriage as an antidote to loneliness. Even if they didn't read the Bible first, they're onto something. God proclaimed that it was 'not good' for Adam to be alone, and it's not good for woman either. Most of us expect marriage to banish loneliness by providing lifelong companionship. But look around and you'll find large numbers of spouses, who are lonely. How does one stated goal of marriage, alleviating a person's aloneness, fail to come true for so many husbands and wives?
 
The reason is the "loneliness lie." "Couples feel lonely for various reasons, but the primary cause is our belief that marriage will put an end to loneliness" (which is a lie). "The act of getting married won't put an end to your loneliness. To achieve that goal, you have to follow commitment with appropriate action. When counseling couples, we often discuss the need for a 'married mindset.' It sounds obvious, but the truth is married couples often continue to think like single people. They agree to be places and do things without considering their partner's schedule --or his or her preferences. They're married, but their actions don't reflect it. That leads to loneliness.
 
I have yet to meet the couple who say, 'you know, we think about each other constantly. We never commit to a weekend or evening activity until we discuss it. We're always calling each other during the day to touch base. But you know what? I just wish this loneliness would end.'
 
When couples are guided by a married mindset they don't struggle with loneliness. Considering one another's needs, wants and preferences shows that they're committed to loving each other, to nurturing and caring for one another, to treating each other with respect. They solve their own loneliness by working to obliterate their mate's loneliness. Sounds odd, but that's how it works.
 
"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. Ephesians 5:25-27
 
Spouses become lonely because one or both partners focus most of their energy on something other than their spouse. Their communication dwindles to 'what's for supper?' 'Where's the mail?' and 'here's what I'm doing this weekend.' Without communication, there can be no emotional connection. And without a strong emotional connection, there can be no relationship.
 
It's important to be intentional as a married couple to interact on purpose, not just out of necessity. Otherwise, your connection together can become so surface that it lends itself to feelings of loneliness. If you're feeling lonely in your marriage, here are some suggestions:
 
Consider what's missing in your relationship. What needs to change to restore emotional closeness?
-- "Do you long to share relaxed time together like you did when you're dating?
-- "Do you wish you could still take walks at night to look at the stars?
-- "Has the 'business' of keeping your family running smoothly crowded out the tenderness that used to come so naturally?
-- "What are the specific patterns that need to change?
-- "Ask yourself: What are you doing (or neglecting) that could make your spouse feel lonely?
 
Just as it takes two to get married, it nearly always takes two to let a marriage drift. So, Identify your own contributions to the problem:
-- Is your schedule so crowded with outside commitments that you're seldom home?
-- Have you neglected hobbies or other activities that used to draw you and your spouse closer?
-- Are you taking your spouse for granted --failing to express thanks, and neglecting to extend common courtesies?
-- Are you too preoccupied with work, the kids, or family finances to listen to your spouse?
 
After asking yourself the hard questions, commit to making personal changes necessary to reverse the emotional drift. Through "prayer, reflection and planning" may I suggest you "talk to your spouse." But make sure you do this prayerfully in the right timing, attitude, and way.
 
"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one flesh." Mark 10:7-8
 
If you're feeling lonely, ask yourself, --What's going on in my marriage that makes me feel lonely? -- Is it a short-term situation I can live with or a long-term situation that needs to change?" Answering these questions can save you from falling into several traps.
 
(1) Blaming yourself. Both Jack and Jill initially felt guilty about their loneliness. Jack was certain that her painful loneliness meant that she had somehow failed. And Jill felt like an ingrate when she complained about a husband who was faithful, family-oriented, and involved in worthy activities. She thought she needed to change the way she felt. But her feelings weren't the problem; they were a signal that she needed to change some circumstances.
 
(2) Blaming your spouse. Jack blamed Jill for being self-absorbed and cutting her out of his life. Yet she missed the real source of his behavior --depression rooted in a business venture on the verge of failure. In this case blaming, didn't help the situation.
 
(3) "Thinking your marriage is doomed or at least condemned to mediocrity. Such thinking only deflects you from the task of finding a workable solution."
 
We recognize that what is written here can be a painful message for those of you who don't have a spouse willing to participate with you in changing things. For that, we're so sorry to cause you additional pain But we have a miracle working God so don't completely discount all that is said.
 
Pray --it's amazing what God can do when we yield our hearts to Him. The Bible says, "He is the lifter of our heads." He knows how to minister to our hearts when everyone else has turned their back on us. Also, we encourage you to pray as David did is Psalm 139:23-24, "Search me O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting."
 
With all that's been said though, keep in mind, participate with God in ministering to each other's aloneness but also know that, another human being can't meet all of your needs. The only person who can meet all our needs is the Lord, and He had to die first!
 
"Follow God's example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." Ephesians 5:1-2
