“Also, teach the older women to live the way those who serve the Lord should live. They should not go around saying bad things about others or be in the habit of drinking too much. They should teach what is good. By doing this they will teach the younger women to love their husbands and children. They will teach them to be wise and pure, to take care of their homes, to be kind, and to be willing to serve their husbands. Then no one will be able to criticize the teaching God gave us.
You should be an example for them in every way by the good things you do. When you teach, be honest and serious.”
Titus 2:3-5, 7 ERV
Ahhhh, the struggle is real. I have read this and highlighted it and reread it, but live it? I am probably considered an elder by some, especially those new to marriage but I don’t feel like it. I’ve been with my husband 37 years and I by no means an expert on marriage or relationships but I am aware of them.
My heart has been grabbed lately by marriage woes.. my inbox, my text messages, social media and just life itself. I’ve been touched enough to reach out.
I only have one thing to say today, Trust God! Trust the God who created heaven and earth, the God who loved you enough to send his son so you could be free. Trust him with your heart, your soul and your marriage.
“And I pray that you and all God’s holy people will have the power to understand the greatness of Christ’s love—how wide, how long, how high, and how deep that love is. Christ’s love is greater than anyone can ever know, but I pray that you will be able to know that love. Then you can be filled with everything God has for you. With God’s power working in us, he can do much, much more than anything we can ask or think of.”
Ephesians 3:18-20 ERV
