“Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality…” (V2)
Marriage is simply the uniting of two imperfect people who are trying to build a perfect life in Christ. The yoke of marriage is not easy – or perfect. We are guaranteed to find ourselves stumbling and falling along the way. Yet the miracle of marriage isn’t found in the stumbling, we can manage that all by ourselves. The miracle appears in the rising, in the rebirth of love, in the rekindling of the flame, in an ability to forgive that stretches from the cross of Calvary to the creased sheets of the marriage bed.
My prayer is for your pain to diminish and your confidence to increase. May God give you the grace to leave your troubles at the office at the end of the day and bring yourself home at night. When your head hits the pillow and your arms reach out for love and understanding, may they be as open to give as they are to receive. God has given you life, and you are alive. Share that life with the one He has given you – to love. You don’t have to be a missionary to your wife. You don’t have to be a perfect performer. You don’t even have to be a “ten” You just have to be a man. Your bride doesn’t have to be a “convert” to your image, and she doesn’t have to be a perfect performer. She just have to be a woman, a genuine woman of God strong and weak. Wise and foolish. Right and wrong. (T D. Jakes)
PRAYER LINE: As you pray, ask God to give you the patience and the wisdom to enjoy your marriage in Jesus’ name. Amen.
