How to Renew Your Vows Everyday.

I love doing weddings! There’s something powerful and profound about standing there with a bride and groom as they exchange vows and rings and enter into the covenant of marriage.

By God’s Grace and Love, I take you to be my wife/husband. To love and to cherish from this day forward. For better or for worse. In sickness or in health. For richer or for poorer. Forsaking all others. ‘Til death do us part.

As married couples or couples preparing for marriage, I believe it’s critical to be reminded often of the significance of these sacred vows. Renewing them doesn’t require a special ceremony…it only requires a commitment to live out these promises and recommit to them each and every day.

By God’s Grace and Love...God must be invited to lead your marriage. He created you, He created your Spouse, and He created Marriage so His plan has to be the one that is followed. He has so many blessings in store for you both. Don’t miss out on them by neglecting your relationship with Him.

I Take You...In all the world, you could only give this gift of your love to one person. You are choosing your spouse and they have chosen you! Never lose sight of this beautiful exchange.

To Love and to Cherish…God calls husbands and wives to adore each other and to pursue each other with an ever-growing love. This is a commitment to invest in the Friendship that sets the foundation for Romantic Love. It means to creatively, thoughtfully and passionately working to win the heart of your spouse over and over again.

For Better or For Worse…We’ve got to love each other NO MATTER WHAT. Marital love can’t be based on convenience or even feelings. This commitment means that our love will never be based on our circumstances. Our vows are most important in the moments when they are least convenient. 

In Sickness or in Health…Our health may be broken but our love and commitment must stay healthy and strong. When your spouse is at their weakest, that is when your love for them needs to be the strongest! 

For Richer or for Poorer...Commit to each other that money will never be your primary pursuit. Your love has nothing to do with whether you’re bankrupt or wealthy. Money comes and money goes, but your commitment to each other must stand firm.

Forsaking all others...If you are consistently confiding in a “friend” of the opposite sex, you are slowly sabotaging your marriage! Stay away from Porn or anything or anyone who could be a force that pulls you away from your spouse. Guard your eyes and your heart.

‘Til Death do us part...Our commitment comes with no expiration date and our marriage has no Exit Strategy! Don’t make Divorce an option! There’s nothing so broken that God can’t restore it if you’ll trust His plan and hold firm to your Faith and your Vows. Finish the Race Together!

  1. How does a women handle a her husband as a pastor that thinks when he minister to women by himself without his wife. or when he minster to people who smoke majuana and he says he smoke it with them to calm his nerves .he has cronic pain do to diffrent health problems I think he do because he wants to. he dosent listen to me when I tell him or talk to him about his ways and how It affects me to see him do these things or he use curse words I know thats not Gods way .he says I am not him and god has not told me I cant do these things I hear from god. I am at the end of the road trying to deal with so many problems that is really getting to me.

      I’m so sorry to hear of the unwise choices your husband is making and the wedge that those choices have placed between the two of you. He has removed accountability from his life and placed himself in a dangerous position of vulnerability to greater sin as he justifies the poor choices he’s making. I would encourage you to pray for him daily and ask God to bring him to a place of repentance. I would also share you feelings with him often. As a husband, he is called to love you as Christ loved the church to point of laying his life down for you. If he chooses to continue dishonoring you, he is simultaneously dishonoring God. I will be praying for you both. God will carry you through this.

    • i am also going thru some tirbulations in my marriage as my husband sees no problem having photos of half naked women on his phone. i feel so betrayed by his behavior and have asked for seperation. i dont know what to do anymore with his behaviour that he thinks is absolutely acceptible. i recently committed my life to christ in september and had hopes that he too with want to change but i see that a far cry for help. its very hard for me to stay in this relationship but as a woman of god i know that a divorce is not an option in the bible. so confused….

        I am so sorry for what you’re having to endure. Your husband is not loving you the way God intended and his behavior has created a brokenness and void in your heart that only God can heal. I pray that God would bring you peace and healing and that your husband would come to his senses and be the husband God intended him to be.

  2. I want to renew my vows with my husband but I want to write them myself where do i start or can get a little help on what to write. I know it should come from the heart and i have alot to say just don’t know how to word it all right, we got married almost 5years ago and we didn’t have anyone with us on this special day so want to redo it again but with all of our family and friends this time to witness this special day again

      Congrats on your vow renewal ceremony! If you Google “Marriage vows” all kinds of examples will come up. That would be a good place to start, but ultimately, just share your heart. Tell each other what you love and admire most about each other and what you’re most looking forward to in the years ahead.
