I Remember My I Do Pledge
When my husband asked me to spend the rest of eternity with him as his wife I said yes, but I never at that point in my life thought about the depth of what I was saying yes to. You see I thought marriage was just going to be this enjoyable time in life where nothing would ever go wrong for me in my marriage. I wanted to life of simplicity of knowing that I was going to be the ideal wife to my husband, and that he was going to be the greatest husband in the entire world to me.
I thought that he was going to erase all the dark days that I had ever experienced in my past relationship, but instead I looked at him when things got bad in our marriage as if he was my enemy. I thought that I could negotiate things with my husband by withholding sex from him in order to get me way, but this did not work, because my husband was not the type of man that is just looking to be build up in a relationship that’s based on sex.
So he sat me down 4 year ago, and told me that I needed to honor him as my husband to remember why I chose to be his wife not just because I wanted to be his wife, but because God sent him to find me, and because I prayed for him. When I think back on that conversation it makes me that more determined as a wife to up hold my vows to be the best supportive wife that God has called me to be.
I want to challenged on the wives out there that are going through a difficult season in their marriage to think about what your vows mean to you. It doesn’t matter if you just got married or if you have been married for more that 25 years the vows is still sacred as it was the first time you spoke those words from your lips to your husband.
Whether you’re separated or your marriage might be going alright! Remember when things get tiresome, and you don’t know what is going to happened next lean not unto your own understand pray about the situation, and leave the rest in Gods hands.
