A beautiful marriage, a unique union…DS ©
One more day under the sun!
My prayer today is about feeling secure in the Lord. I pray that our Heavenly Father who knows all and He is a true creator bless us today and protects us from all harm, that He guides us to understand and listen to what He speaks, that we leave our own ways and follow His ways and all I prayed in the name of Jesus Christ, amen!
Yesterday I read a beautiful devotional in the magazine of UCB (United Christian Broadcasters) where I volunteer in the Prayer Line. This is what I read:
“Our marriages break down when truth is violated, integrity is forsaken, trust is broken, manipulation is allowed, self-interest is the rule, control is the goal, and time isn’t invested.”
I am not a married person however I have observed my own relationships and marriages/relationships of others and I found the above statement so true. It applies to all type of relationships where the basic values are violated and eventually the relationship will break down.
The most important “marriages” we do have, even before we get married our spouse, are our marriage with the Lord and the marriage with ourselves. Note, that the marriage with ourselves is the only one that we cannot get a divorce! We carry ourselves wherever we go, whatever we do! We can decide not to follow the Lord and run away from Him. We can divorce our spouses, our friends, our colleagues and the whole society but never ourselves.
Among all these “marriages” there is one that we might go for a divorce but the bridegroom would not apply for divorce ever. I am talking about our Lord. He created us and He has plans, good plans for us. He has promised never to forsake us. In few, He will never violate the truth, forsake the integrity, break the trust, allow manipulation, go for self-interest, try to control, and invest no time. He is the most stable, honest, beneficial and trustful person we can have in our lives. He will never give up on us, He will love us unconditional under any circumstances and He will go many extra miles for us. It is worthy to be and stay married to Him. Amen!
It is written:
“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
– Deuteronomy 31v8
I wish you a wonderful and creative day,
