We recently celebrated our third anniversary :). As we looked back we realized that so much has happened in three years; it’s a long-short time. We are definitely not the same as when we got married. Marriage has refined our edges. The things that used to make us edgy no longer do. It’s been a daily heart boot camp.
I am fond of love stories. Hearing how people met and courted makes me happy. What saddens me though, is that something happens a few years down the line. The love that had set their souls ablaze is just but a candle that lights on some days. When you ask what happened, they can’t quite put their finger on it. It’s been a slow fade over the days and months and they didn’t realize how much things were changing until they woke up one day and couldn’t recognize the person lying next to them. Yes, they knew their name but that was about it. They’d become too self absorbed to follow up on what the other liked, loved or even loathed. Basically, they were strangers living in the same house. Relying on the spark that was present when they got married (before life happened) to keep their hearts ablaze.
Love doesn’t just happen. It takes work and sacrifice.
When you find the one that your heart loves,pursue them daily.
Love is a choice that you make daily.
Peter is Still The One. The face that I wake up to each morning, the One I choose to love each day
Last year I shared two precious lessons I had learnt over the two years. A few days leading up to the big day, I begun to ask God what the lesson was this year ( I believe that the school of life has many lessons to teach). As I reminisced over the last couple of years I realized that seasons have changed but He has remained the same.
God revealed to me that HE IS STILL THE ONE!!
He is CONSTANT regardless of the good and bad times that life throws your way.
He is still the One at the throne
He is still the One who holds us together (Colossians 1:17)
He is STILL I AM.
Lamentations 5:19 (NLT)
But Lord, you remain the same forever!
Your throne continues from generation to generation.
Some things never change; God remains the same.
This morning as I got Miss K ready, I started singing ‘Great is Thy Faithfulness’ and as she hummed along, I realized that it is He who has sustained us. He is still faithful, His mercies are new every morning.
May He be All that you need this week.
