From my Reading Corner -On Marriage-

I am reading, Sacred Marriage a book by Gary Thomas; my heart is being fed and my soul challenged: What if God designed marriage to make us holy more than to make us happy? This is the question the author addresses through the book.

So here, I want to share some quotes with you.

“How can I tell my children that God’s promise of reconciliation is secure when they see that my own promise doesn’t mean a thing?” (p.35)

“If my marriage contradicts my message {of reconciliation}, I have  sabotaged the goal of my life: to be pleasing to Christ and to faithfully fulfill the ministry of reconciliation, proclaiming to the world the good news that we can be reconciled to God through Jesus Christ” (p.34)

“Yes, it is difficult to love your spouse. But if you truly want to love God, look right now at the ring on your left hand, commit yourself to exploring anew what that ring represents, and love passionately, crazily, enduringly the fleshy person who put it there. 
It just may be  one of the most spiritual things you can do”         (p.51)

So I close this post here, I will now go and write my Man a letter; I want to tell him all that this ring on my left hand still means to me.

Only God can empower us to love passionately, crazily, enduringly. Only He has loved us that way!

Why not shut down your computer right now and gaze at the ring on your left hand and write a love letter to your man?

If you no longer have a ring on your hand go to Jesus and gaze at His love, and write a prayer to the One who is the author of love.

  1. Beautiful post, Becky. We celebrated 45 years of marriage last Saturday and it hasn’t always been easy but we have always been in love and realized the source of our love and our strength–only through Him!

    Now, I am going to go gaze at this ring for a little while.

    Thank you,
    D.
