I can’t count the number of times my husband and I have been asked to tell the TRUTH about how marriage is….let’s just say, if we got umm 20 bob for every time we were asked we would….okay you get my point.
So back to the question at hand, “How is marriage? Tell me the truth.” We proceed to tell them the truth but many people do not seem satisfied with the truth. Perhaps there should be a meme created for the face they make. I digress….What is the truth you may ask? It is that marriage is beautiful. Yes…we have all heard the not so beautiful…heck…very ugly stories out there but there are some exceptions. Does that mean we walk on sunshine every day, well, not exactly, it just means that there is Someone greater than us who holds all things together (read: our marriage together).
Colossians 1:17 (Amplified Bible) ‘And He Himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (cohere, are held together).’
This video below by Louis Giglio shows just how much Christ holds the world together.
It is humbling to know that Science proves that He LITERALLY holds us together. Laminin is God’s Cellular glue that shows just how He holds our bodies together.
The truth about marriage is:
Ecclesiastes 4:12 (English Standard Version) ‘And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.’
Different couples may say many things about how to have a successful marriage…many subjective things.
However, the objective thing about marriage that I have found constant in the marriages that I know of that are thriving is, if Jesus is the center of your marriage, if He is the main strand in that threefold cord. He will hold it together. Yes, He will hold the marriage together.
