Liar Liar...Marriage is not a bowl of Cherries

Dear Reader: Often we have been lead to believe that marriage is just two people in love and living together happily ever after. Well unfortunately it doesn't quite work like that!

Marriage is however the union of two who have surrendered their lives and will to each other in commitment, to fulfill and complete their lifes. It is the life commitment that makes the difference. In sickness and in health, some of the vowels read, til death do you both part. Yes marriage does have ups and downs, troubles, tribulations, disappointments, and even some surprises. But after all that, marriage is the revelation of God's union with mankind. Surprised? I know, but it's true. God really fashioned the Church after a Marriage, says Ephesians 5:24,25.

Marriage is the process of two people becoming one!. The process of Death, Burial, and Resurrection, just as Christ did.

Death: We must die to our ways and self-centeredness to open the door for our mate to now become a part.
Burial: We must forever bury (not hide) those things (hurts, fears, disappointments of the past) that would interfere with our communicating with each other.
Resurrection: This is the result of . . . .no more twain, but one flesh. Matthew 19. Then will your marriage spring forth like a new day., and no matter what crops up, together you are able to walk with Victory and Confidence because together you have won! Praise God! Now that's what I call MARRIAGE GOD'S WAY!

Stay Blessed!
