A Toast To Marriage
Marriage has been on mind and heart lately. It is the relationship that God gives us on earth to best represent His love for us. It is also probably the most abused and misused relationship. By the way, I don't have any direction with this blog. I just want to get out what I have been pondering lately. On Sunday, Mike did an AMAZING job of preaching about marriage, divorce, and God's way of affirming marriage. I know that all of us have people in our lives who have had to go through divorce. It is a nasty thing that creates such a large ripple effect that it is impossible to realize the ramifications of it. So many times I question why people get divorced. It even seems like it is the "thing to do" in many social circles. My heart truly goes out to couples who decide to end their committment to one another. Zach and I pray that Satan will never have a strong-hold of our relationship. Satan has a way of attacking people where they are not ready to defend. We don't want to be one of those couples who says "We will never have a struggle too hard to fix in our marriage" because that can lead to us not watching and being aware of our weaknesses, therefore opening a door for Satan. I thank God for the committment that Zach and I have for one another.
On a somewhat lighter note, God has abuntantly blessed me with an amazing husband.
I need to thank God more for my husband who loves me more and more each day, who supports my goals and desires, who is the spiritual leader, who makes me laugh every day...my list could go on. Thank you Zach. I anticipate with such excitement the life that awaits us. Let's make it a fulfilling one.
Marriage is something that can't be prayed over enough. If you want, you can even pray for Zach and me. We can share prayers . I am always open to prayer. If you are reading this blog, I have most likely prayed for you in the past week. Whether it is your marriage, your dating relationship, your future spouse, or your relationship with God-- you have been lifted up in my prayers.
Thanks for reading this blog. I feel kind of like a Debbie Downer, but I am just trying to keep it real.
