Have you struggled in your marriage or relationships? Marriage is not easy.

While both a husband and wife bring a lot of beauty into a relationship, they can also bring along pressures from life, stress and strong emotions from past pain.

When a marriage doesn’t have a strong foundation, it’s easy for those pressures and pain to overcome a relationship. Takashi and Naoko’s marriage nearly collapsed under stress, anxiety and loneliness until they discovered true love. In the beginning it was not a love for one another, but true love they found in another person that transformed their family completely.

“This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.” 1 John 4:10-12 (NIV)

When Takashi and Naoko encountered Jesus, they were finally able to get healing from the past pain that was causing problems in their relationship. What would it be like if God brought healing in your heart as well? How would receiving God’s perfect love make it easier for you to love others as well?
