Pray for Marriages (Love Renewed)


Marriage, the Simple Truth

We fell in love.  We got engaged.
Invitations we did send!
We just assumed we’d always feel
The way that we felt then.

A wedding, honeymoon, and house
Were high upon our list,
We checked each box and filled that house,
And thought our life was bliss.

But soon we had some hills to climb,
Slipped into valleys too,
Resentment came and love was crushed,
Each spouse said, “Must be you!!”

We pondered different exit plans
Consulting with the best.
What happened to this life we planned,
Our comfy little nest?

Just when I thought all hope was lost
I fell upon my knees,
And pleaded with the God I knew,
Then grace was poured on me.

His flame of love transformed our hearts,
Our commitment we renewed
“Conform our will to yours dear Lord,
For we do trust in You!

An unknown peace now entered in,
A joy now filled our hearts,
Each hill we climbed, each challenge faced,
No longer pushed apart.

His light illumines us each day,
We often make amends,
For stubborn as we often are,
We know we each must bend.

We learned a wedding’s just one day
But marriage is for life,
So take the helm our dear, sweet Lord,
In you there is no strife!

Keep praying prayer warriors!

Peace, Joy, and Love,

Share hope.  Pass it on!
