I haven't blogged in a LONG time! We have been insanely busy, but starting next week things will start slowing down! I have so much to blog about! The Lord has and is doing some incredible stuff in my life, but more on that later. :)
I was reading a post today about marriage and came a crossed a few quotes that I found worthy of sharing!
"A happy marriage is made up of two forgivers." ~ Ruth Bell Graham
"When you marry someone, you are entrusted with the heart of another human being. Whatever else your life's great mission will entail, loving and defending this heart next to you is part of your great quest." ~ John Eldredge
"(In marriage) you do have an enemy, and it is not your spouse. The sooner you come to terms with that, the better." ~ Stasi Eldredge
"marriage is a perfect storm because your brokenness and sin collide in devastating precision with your spouse's. Yet God is in that, because He is using your marriage to transform you." ~ John Eldredge
"The moment we decide to throw more energy into fighting for our mate than with him, the crack of a fist on the enemy's jaw splits the ears of angels." ~ Beth Moore
Wow! We do indeed have an enemy that hates marriage. One who hates OUR marriage, and is actively looking to destroy it. My husband is NOT my enemy and I am NOT his!!! We are joined together through Christ, we are a God built team! He put us together for a purpose. He uses our marriages to make us more like Him! We are in a war everyday, but we war not again flesh and blood! We are called to fight, but instead of fighting one another, let's turn and fight the true enemy together, getting our strength and power from the true Victorious One! Through HIM, we are OVERWHELMINGLY conquerors!
Nehemiah 4:14 "Don't be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes."
