A Love That Stands Strong

A Love That Stands Strong

Posted by Ronnie | February 17, 2015

What God did for us was very rare! My wife and I met while we were working.  I was 24 and she was 25 at the time. We became friends first, until one day God allowed me to see her as my wife! We built our relationship on a strong foundation. We vowed to always laugh, trust, communicate, and love each other no matter what. Over the past 5 years of marriage,  although it was not anything major or life shattering for us we still encountered attacks. Lashunda and I did a study, In America, there is one divorce approximately every 36 seconds. That’s nearly 2,400 divorces per day, 16,800 divorces per week and 876,000 divorces a year. The average length of a marriage that ends in divorce is eight years. Wow is right!   We decided that we would not be in that number! We have learned as a young married couple the purpose of marriage isn’t to “complete” you and make you happy. You may be happy in your marriage, but that is not the purpose. The beauty of a healthy and honoring Christian marriage is that God can and will fulfill the desires of your heart so that the weight of responsibility doesn’t lie on our spouse’s shoulders. What our spouse provides is an opportunity to grow closer to the image of Christ.  What if we were able to just love our spouse for who they are and not for who we wanted them to be.   What would happen? What if for one week, each of us chose to unconditionally love our spouses. That’s right…“as is.” What about the fulfillment of our heart’s desires? Well, I guess we’d have to leave that in God’s court.  God is the ultimate heart changer and the ultimate heart fixer. We have grown together, healing together, and our faith is being exercised every day! We are reminded by the scripture Proverbs 31:11-12  “The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.” To all young couples that are married we want to encourage you to honor God, love God, and serve God so that He gives you clear instructions how to Honor your spouse, love your spouse and serve your spouse!
