A Holy Covenant

From Elisha : My vision for this new blog is to somehow make it into something that will help marriages by pointing them to the helper. God. Jesus. Holyspirit. Im not sure how this will all workout or connect but i have high hopes that God will shape it along the way.  Truthfully if it wasn't for the bible I would have left my marriage many times especially in the early years . As i continue to seek God and grow closer to him truth comes into perspective. My thoughts start to change. I am becoming remade. New. God shows me that true love isn't a feeling, it is sacrifice. I have come to realize many things about  marriage.  Marriage gives us a glimpse of what Jesus us did for us. He sacrificed everything. he gave up his life.  We didn't deserve it. It wasn't 50/50 it was 100/0  us getting the all of it. So when you come to a point in your relationship when your are treated unfairly, unloved and ignored. Try to remember that we did the same to jesus but he still loved us and sacrificed for us. Just step back from the situation look at your spouse like jesus did. Make a sacrifice. Pray for him and wait on God. Yes it feels unfair but its right. I have found that God always answers . I remember a specific day when i was very upset with Andrew. Then all of a sudden the still small voice in me said  Don't yell. Don't loose control. This is holy Ground. This is a holy marriage. Think on that. What you have is holy . ( ps. i am not perfect by any means I'm a work in progress)
