TEN YEARS! ONE DECADE!Â 120 months! 3652.42 days! Â 87658.1 hours!Â 5,256,000 minutes and counting!
Won’t He do it!? I thank God for the 10 years of martial bliss!! I’ve been blessed to have been found by the only man that can deal with my imperfections and shortcomings. God knew what I needed to become who He created me to be.
I was thinking about our courtship, engagement, wedding and marriage ten years later. I can honestly say we are risk takers, thrill seekers and faith divers! We are willing to dive in “head” first in every situation we face knowing that God has led our every step and have blessed our straight ways and broken roads. Have you ever wondered why the diamond is so popular in weddings and engagements? I believed it to mean purity and pressure. I’ve done some research and come to find out, I was on the right track.Â Diamonds are the strongest and most durable substances on earth. Diamonds are the most popular choice for engagement rings and have become the symbol of true love.
Ten years later, I can attest that we have endured many tests and obstacles. Marriage by no means are for the weak. You must be able to stand against temptation and fight for your marriage. Â It is the very institution that has been under scrutiny because of the very foundation. God created marriage and He made it a good thing. What the world is making out to be is totally opposite of God. God is Love and anything outside of Him is not love it is lust of the flesh and self-glorification. The bible says, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” (Isaiah 5:20 NLT)
Being happily married for a decade can teach you some things and is definitely an accomplishment in today’s time, but it is to the Glory of God that we did not let our situations and emotions affect our relationship. Not only is marriage a feat but being married with five children can be a challenge in itself.
