What I have come to discover as an absolute truth about marriage is that, marriage is all about serving. Yes, being a servant and living out a heart position of intentionally aiming to serve our spouses on a continual basis. Especially, when we are trying to have a marriage God’s way opposed to the worlds way. But yet, what I have also come to know as an absolute truth is that, serving is God’s business. Meaning, serving is something that can only come from God and His overwhelming overflow of love, and our yielding to Him to give it. And since serving can only be produced from God in its authentic form, truth is, if we are not going to the Father on a consistent basis to be loved on by Him that we may in return give it in its purest way then guess what, we’ll be giving only a form of love. And that form of love of course, is merely temporal and it constantly looks for a return in everything… In fact, loving out of a form opposed to the authentic ness of God’s love will only eventually cause us to become exhausted, hurt, disappointed, ineffective etc. All because of again, trying to give and do in our own strength opposed to giving and doing out of the overflow we have received from the Father.
Therefore, just as I am praying for you, I am also praying for myself, that we will begin to see our need in a greater way of loving out of the overflow of that which is produced from our Heavenly Father instead of that in which we are just scraping up to give. It is also my prayer we will give everything and do all God would have for us to do with our spouses.
May God continue to bless, strengthen and encourage you while you are on your faith journey.
