"disagree". Put two people together who have lived life their way for so many years and then have to learn to bend and mold to a new life, to answer to another person...well its hard.
We can be a bit stubborn and selfish...headstrong and so much more. I have to be honest with you, I can totally see how people, if they dont have Christ at the forefront of their marriage...I dont see how they can stand these storms in life. I can see how one, when things start to get rocky, turns to anothers arms or walk away completely from their vows.
The movies about feelings and how we should follow our heart...rubbish.
It has created such a disaster in how marriage life should be that no wonder we have so many failed marriages out there.
Since we met, Seth and I have committed to life. That when we walked down that aisle, we knew it wouldnt be temporary or an opt out option. I think maybe thats why, for awhile, I was so on edge, so emotionally rocky...because I knew this person, this man..was my forever.
I knew what I accepted now, what I knew to come, was it. Agreed to never utter the word of separation or divorce..to never even think about that..for it wasnt in option.
Think of it this way, would you go about thinking if your kids got you mad, you would ditch them? Walk away from them and say,"ok, look, its been great, but Im just not feeling it anymore...I like so and so's kid better..so I am going to trade you off for them."
Yeah, most likely not, right? Well...its the same with your spouse. That person you walked down the aisle with, you said I do too, and vowed to be with them in sickness and in health...well..Trading them for a different model should NEVER be an option..NEVER.
Do you think that thats how God intended marriage to be? Something convenient? Marriage is just like our walk with Christ. When the going gets tough, do we walk away? When things get hard and we get hurt, do we give up?
No...You know what I have learned...that the last few years, God has been building me up just for this. Seth and I have and continue to still have great obstacles we can/will go through..but the harder we pray, the more we cling to God through this storm, the more I love this man every day. We argue...then we talk. We share our struggles..we share whats on our minds..we never go to bed angry and we wake up kneeling together by our bed. Who knows what will happen between that time..but God is our super glue that will hold us together..forever.
