We have four days until our 3 month anniversary. October 19th was the happiest day of our lives. We may be still in the ‘newlywed’ stages of marriage, but I can say that it has been both the easiest and the hardest thing to get accustomed to. We have never lived together so we are learning each other in so many new ways, even after 6 and a half years of dating. The Lord is opening our eyes to new things about each other, and molding us to be His masterpiece. It was so easy before we were married to slip under the radar, now we are able to clearly see each other’s sins, shortcomings, strengths, blessings and gifts. As “Iron sharpens Iron” (proverbs 27:17), we are learning to humble ourselves to correct as well as be corrected, and to gain maturity in Christ together.
We are both strong willed, we are both natural born leaders, we are both artists, we are both passionate. We are now learning to compromise, learning to listen, follow and submit, learning to enjoy each other’s odd tendencies, and we are learning to be passionate together. About each other and most importantly about the Lord. We are no longer living for ourselves, but we are living for Christ and we are living for each other.
No one said marriage was easy, I know it wont be, but we can find joy in our marriage. Joy in the Lord. Ecclesiastes 4:12 says ‘… a chord of three strands is not easily broken.’ We are learning to lean on that third strand, for everything, we are strong in Him. He is our help in times of trouble. He is our provider. He is our comforter, the list goes on and on…. He is everything we need.
This blog is going to be about my pursuit. My pursuit of my husband and my pursuit of Christ. It will have recipes, fun ideas, date nights, gift ideas, scripture verses, devotionals, you name it. I am praying that this not only helps others, but that is helps me. In all that I do, I do it for His Glory.
