It’s God will that marriage be for life. And, that’s not easy.
Mark 10:8-9 (NKJV)
8 and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
We all know that marriage is a series of ups and downs, highs and lows. It’s a lifetime of challenges and confirmations of your love for one another. That’s exactly what these challenges are…confirmations.
The good times are the reward of love, but the hard times are the reasons to love.
After 31 years there are some things that confirm beyond the shadow of a doubt that my wife and I were meant to be together. Here are three…
1. WHEN YOU CAN SMILE ABOUT YOUR BAD MEMORIES
When you think of some of the things you endured together…Some of the things your spouse said to you in anger,…some of your most challenging struggles you survived…it can make smile or shed a tear of joy.
2. WHEN YOU KNOW YOU WOULD MARRY THEM ALL OVER AGAIN
When even though you wouldn’t do everything the same, you know in your heart that you would marry them all over again.
3, WHEN YOU WOULDN’T WANT TO BE WITH ANYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD
No matter how they look, what they have, what their accomplishments may be or what they can do…you wouldn’t want to share your life with anyone else in the world. You wouldn’t want to share their struggles with anyone else. You wouldn’t want to share your joys and victories with anyone else. It just wouldn’t be the same.
Enjoy one another, and continue to prove your love to one another every day.
