Commitment of a life time

Colossians 3:19, Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. Ephesians 5:24-25, As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church.

Marrige is amazing! Marriage is work! For some it is or has been Hell! But are you ready to love some one like you never have before,like Jesus loved the church. That’s what we are called to do HUSBAND’S.  Love and cherish our wives as Jesus loved the church. He loved the church so much that he actually gave his life to save it.

I don’t say this because i figured this out but I say this because this is the fiight that I’m fighting daily, to wake up and make the decison to love my wife no matter what I feel or think, no matter if we’ve argued or agreed. I desire to wake up everyday tring my hardest to Love my wife like Jesus loved the church. After all she has blessed us with two amazing girls and another little on the way. After all she does take care of our home, and  pour her life into our girls everyday. After all she does love me even when I seem or have seemed unlovable.

Are you at a fork in the road? Are you hanging on by a thread? Are you turning things around and your feeling like the “honeymoon stage” again?  Are you willing to fight for the love of your life? Are you willing to take a look at yourself and stop blaming your wife, husband, or everybody else? Are you ready to take responsiblity and be the leader of your home?

When Jess and I got married almost 12 years ago we took a vow much like everybody else has. It went something like this. "In sickness and health, for richer or poorer, until DEATH do us part! I want my leaving my home to be when I go to meet Jesus. Marriage is a commitment to your wife and to God. We can’t necessarliy change our spouse but we can change us. By God’s grace we can do something to move our relationship in a positive direction, sometimes YOU have to be the one to make the first JUMP, not your spouse.

Jesus bless this day and the marriages that are all around us. thank you for your love for us and your grace. Will we begin to look at us and see where we need to change or work on those thigns that keep us from loving our wife ir husband like you’ve asked us to. Thank you for your grace and your mercy. Thank you for and amazing wife and family. Bless them today. I love you, Thank you, AMEN!
