This month's topic is wide open. Boy, if you want to give someone writer's block, tell them they can write about anything they want. I have thought about this since Friday and I have so many ideas swirling around in my head, it's crazy. I look forward to seeing what other participants come up with.
Marriage is one of God's love letters to us, perhaps His greatest. From the very first man and woman, God recognized our human need for companionship, and He created marriage. The woman is not only a helper for the man, she is part of him. And right after her creation, God sets the standard for all future marriages: For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. (Gen. 2:24)
In the New Testament, the purpose of marriage is further expanded upon. Marriage is a living example of Christ's love for the church (the body of believers). A successful marriage is a beautiful foreshadowing of what our future in Heaven will be like. Knowing how much my husband loves me, and how much I love him, that just blows my mind, for it's only a pale imitation of how much Christ loves us.
Is any marriage perfect? Of course not. We're all human. But when we give control of our marriage to God, He will show us the most wonderful things about His love for us. Are you eagerly anticipating our Wedding Day? I know I am!
