Do we go buy a fire extinguisher AFTER our house is already on fire? Do we put on our seat belt AFTER we have already crashed our car? Do we put on a life-jacket after we have already drowned? NO we don’t!! We do all of these things before tragedy strikes. Not after. So why do we wait until our marriage is in turmoil before we start working on it? My husband and I are part of a couple’s bible study. I view it as a type of vitamin boost to our marriage. Not because we’re having trouble…because we’re not…but because we don’t want to have trouble. We realize that we are 2 broken people but we want to be broken together. We don’t want to look back and say, “If only we had worked on our marriage…” Marriage is a sacred bond, ordained by God, and, IF SEALED BY God’s protection, can NOT be broken. But we have to ask God’s protection over it and continue to maintain it. It’s when we neglect it that Satan finds an opening to creep in. So I’m encouraging you…don’t wait until there is a fire, invest in your marriage now. And if it’s too late for your marriage, ask God if it’s really too late or if that is just Satan whispering in your ear. Because it ain’t over until God says it is!

I'm a busy mom, submerged in chaos but infused by the saving grace of God. And while some days it feels like I am hanging on by a thread, I know that everything will always be ok as long as the thread that I'm hanging onto is His. Matthew 9:21-22 For she said to herself, "If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well." But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, "Be of good cheer daughter; your faith has made you well." And the woman was made well from that hour. View all posts by Tonivandewiele
