Sunday Morning: Marriage ♡💑♡

by - April 29, 2018


Hello my beautiful people, welcome back!

Today the topic is going to be Marriage and what that means, what comes with it and how to be sure that is the one or the correct partner for you. Lets start with what is marriage?Marriage is, according to the dictionary, the legally or formally recognized union of two people as partners in a personal relationship. Actually is more than a recognized union, is it's commitment, fidelity, dedication, sacrifice, loyalty, effort, dedication and a lot more that no one tell you before get married or maybe they tell you but you just didn't listened. Above all things means love, love for each other, love for God, love for the life. And what is love? Love is God and just like his word say 

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8;13

It's important to scrutinize the word of God and understand that not everything is literal, within his word we find many metaphors. You have to read His word carefully and let the Holy Spirit speak to you through them. For example:

"Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot sweep it away. If one were to give all the wealth of one’s house for love, it would be utterly scorned." Song of songs 8:6-7

"Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands" 1st Peter 3:1-5

In Son of Songs 8:6-7 we found a deep description of the love, the love for your other one and the love for God. It's intense but it's beautiful too the way the person describe the love with passion. In the Peter verses we could see how he tell us (wives) what we have to do to be a better wife and make your marriage work. But we have to be careful on how interpreted His word, because the important thing here (for me at least) is the message that this verses are transmitting. What is the message? Like I said at least for me, is that we as wives or partner have to be the rock of the house, specially when He said submit. With submitting, it doesn't mean that the husband or your partner have all the power in the relation and the home or that you don't have a say and matter. It's means that you're an important piece for make the marriage work, I could said that the most important, because as a wife or partner you have to be there to bring support, be his/her safe place when something goes wrong or is a bad day. 

With the marriage comes beautiful and "perfect" days but also comes bad days because nothing and no one is perfect. It's perfectly normal, but the important thing is how you and your partner manage the situations. In God words you can find a lot of verses that can help you with your marriage and understand the purpose that God have with him like you can saw in the Peter verses. For example in this verse God tells husbands that they have to take care of and respect their wives in the same way that commands wives to respect their husbands and be a rock of the home.

"May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth. A loving doe, a graceful deer may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be intoxicated with her love." Prov. 5:18-19

"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her; In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself." Ephesians 5:25, 28

"The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down." Prov. 14:1


God sends us to rejoice in us as a marriage, to be one as a couple. For a marriage to prosper there must be commitment on both sides, because both have a purpose in the relationship, a purpose that God has given it and put into their hearts. As women in marriage, we are the rock for our husbands, just as our husbands are our providers, guardians and heroes. The fact that in the word of God says that the man is the head of the house and the provider doesn't mean that as a wife we can't contribute and help with the provision of the house. It's important to be able to maintain a balance so that things work and always maintain an open communication. 

How do you know that him or she is the right person for you? God will let you know believe me, He would talk to you in different ways, sometimes He would whisper to your ear he/she is the one. But they're some questions that you can ask yourself

1. He/She make you grow as a person?
2. He/She bring you closer to God?
3. Are you ready to commit yourself to another person, to give your time, energy, and even make sacrifices?
5. Are you ready to be one as married couple?

If your answers to these questions are yes or mostly yes then you're ready to said I do. If your answers are mostly no, you should talk with your partner and ask for God guidance. If you have some questions, you can ask me anytime. I'm here for anything you need! Also I recommend the book "The Resolutions for women" by Priscilla Shirer, is a great book. It has really help me in all the process to build my relationship with God and my husband. 

Happy Sunday and God blessed you all! ♡♡
