Beautiful words to a song regarding the love in marriage. I hope that someone might find these words as encouraging and inspiring as I have!
Love is not a Fight
Love is not a place,
to come and go as we please
It's a house we enter in,
then commit to never leave
So lock the door behind you,
throw away the key
We'll work it out together,
let it bring us to our knees
chorus: Love is a shelter in a raging storm
Love is peace in the middle of a war
And if we try to leave, may God send angels to guard the door
No, love is not a fight, but it's something worth fighting for.
To some, love is a word
that they can fall into
But when they're falling out,
keeping that word is hard to do
Love will come to save us,
If we'll only call
He will ask nothing from us,
But demand we give our all
I have only been married for 7 months now, but I've already realized the hardness and trials inside of marriage and can only imagine that harder things will come. Don't let difficulties tear apart what God recognizes as a life long commitment. As long as we are ready and willing for change in our own hearts, the Lord is here to help and guide us together. Also remember that our marriages are testimonies to those that don't know Him, showing a picture of our relationship with Christ. Let it be a good testimony!
Have you seen the movie Fire Proof?? OH, such a great movie!
If you haven't seen this, you need to! I highly recommend it, and really really want it to be apart of my personal movie collection. I will warn you though, you WILL cry! Check it out.
"You NEVER leave your partner behind."
"Wherefore they are no more two, but one flesh.
What therefore God hath joined together, let no man put asunder. "
