My Marriage

Thank you, Lord, for my marriage
to the man that You knew,
from eternity past,
would be my perfect mate.

No, my Dear Husband is not perfect.
That means I am not perfect either.
But by God's grace,
because He first loved us
by sacrificing His Son, Jesus,
to die for our sins, 
He enables us to face the challenges of married life
with joy.

Joy is happiness
because of God's love, provision, and protection, 
no matter what
our circumstances are.

I can't even take that all in.
It will take me the rest of my life
to begin to plumb the depths of Love like that!

And thank You for my Dear Husband
who loves me
no matter what;
who fights for our love
against the temptations to walk away
when the going gets tough.
I don't deserve him!

Lord, I pray that You would give me grace to use EVERY interaction with him
to show my love for him
and You.

for the idea in the paragraph above
and for sharing this song on her website.

God is love...
We love because He first loved us.
1 John 4:16, 19

Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm;
for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame.
Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot sweep it away.
If one were to give all the wealth of one’s house for love,
it would be utterly scorned.
Song of Solomon 8:6-7 (NIV)
