I think marriage is a funny thing. What better example in the world is there, to show how strong and capable we are in this lifetime. I take my marriage very seriously. I may or may not write about some serious happenings in my marriage, but what I can tell you right now, is marriage is a big deal. There are ups and downs, and stagnant plateaus. There is a plethora of lies being told about marriage, and I want to get to the bottom of it. The #truth about marriage. The intended plan. The beauty of its rightful place. The depth of its power. Why is there is the willingness of two persons to join together through thick and thin, and then just let it all go, because the world is evil? There is a course that marriage is on in our society, many of us are not nailing it.
If there is one area of my life that needs some more self-discovery, its marriage. My husband is my most absolute best friend in the world. I actually did that right. I married my best friend. But it doesn’t mean we don’t struggle. The beauty of it though is that when the marriage part of the pie is failing, I have my best friend right there to lean on. And when my best friend and I are at odds, I have a husband that still kisses me goodnight. There’s something to this whole #marriedforlife idea. Husband-willing I’ll be able to share some of the things I’ve learned, some things I hope to still discover, and the happenings of this crazy life he and I are building together. There’s a war going on out there for marriage. I think from here to eternity we have a great opportunity to seek out and discover God’s planned design for marriage. That it can be a tool to go out in the world and be used for His glory, and not ours. My hubby and I are on a mission to battle for the truth, and after several years of battling each other, I think we are finally on the same side. I think this notion can be missed a lot, in how God designed marriage. Hopefully I can convince the old ball n’ chain to come here and write a bit as well, so everyone can join in, as we try to figure it all out, as a team.
Being in war together may be what keeps us from being at war with each other. Rather than neglecting the battle to work on your marriage, maybe the best thing for your marriage is to enter the battlefield together. Francis Chan – desiringGod
