The Marriage Collection consists of the following 10 titles. Expectations: the Enemy of Relationships and Gratitude Many people set out in life to be grateful, but then gratefulness eludes them. And the reason that is so is because there is an enemy to gratefulness with which they do not deal. That enemy is "expectations." Expectations ruin relationships. You thought this person was going to do something and they didn't. You thought this was going to happen and it didn't. Expectations destroy friendships. Expectations produce anger and bitterness. Expectations damage contentment. Expectations produce disappointment. On this vitally important DVD with 240 onscreen graphics, Dr. Davis shows the difference between God's expectations which are always right, and man's expectations which are often perverted. Then he teaches how to give your expectations to God and ask God by faith to give you whatever He wants you to have. Running time: 59 minutes How to Build a Storm-Proof Marriage There is no such thing as a marriage without storms. Paul promised that those who marry "shall have trouble in the flesh." Since all marriages have problems, why do some divorce and some do not? Because one home is solidly put together on a foundation where two people are living out God's truth on a daily basis! They've used wisdom, understanding, and knowledge to build a house with a solid foundation that wind and rain and floods can't bring down. A storm-proof marriage must be built on the rock of: A covenant instead of the sand of a contract; rock of humility instead of the sand of pride; rock of communication instead of the sand of silence; rock of unconditional love instead of the sand of emotion; rock of acceptance and praise instead of the sand of anger and put downs; rock of building each other instead of the sand of inactivity; rock of changing instead of the sand of stubbornness; rock of salvation instead of the sand of religion. Running time: 65 minutes ONENESS - God's Goal for Your Marriage Marriage was not the invention of man, but was the key part of God's creation that He viewed as being "very good." God's goal for a husband and wife, mentioned at least six times in the Bible, was that they be "one flesh." This "oneness" was to extend to many different areas of human life. The husband and the wife were each given by God roles and responsibilities that when put together made one whole, complete unit of life. ANYTHING A HUSBAND OR WIFE DOES WHICH DAMAGES THEIR ONENESS NEEDS TO BE EXAMINED. This message shows eight of the advantages of oneness while also pointing out three of the enemies of oneness which couples should avoid at any cost. In order to experience the fullness of marital joy that only comes through oneness couples are encouraged to "grow together" and to "die to self."
