What’s keeping your marriage together

What’s keeping your marriage together

Whats holding your marriage together?

Have you ever stopped to really think about that.

Is it the kids, or is it finances? Is it guilt, or fear? Or is it commitment, or love?

There is at least one marriage out there that one of these things above is what they feel is holding their marriage together.

But what happens when the children grow up and move out?
What happens when one feels like they now make enough money to be on their own, so finances are not a factor?

What happens when the guilty party  doesn’t have the guilt anymore?

What happens if someone breaks the commitment?
Or what happens is the fairytale is over and it feels like the love has faded?

Is there still a marriage, will you stay and work it out?

Or has the key ingredient to holding your marriage together been missing all along?
Me and my husband learned not too long ago that even if we didn’t feel like we loved each other at times, if we truly loved God that was enough to work through anything.
How does that work? You ask let’s see.

If God put your marriage together, he’s going to keep it together because anything He appoints He anointes.

Matthew  19:6.  Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.(kjv)

1 Peter  4:8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.(kjv)
  (“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:8)

Ecclesiastes  4:12  And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.(kjv)
(“Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” – Ecclesiastes 4:12)

Ephesians  4:2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;  4:3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.(kjv)
(Be completely humble and gentle; Be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace.”- Ephesians 4:2-3)

So basically what all theses scriptures have in common is God.

Is God in your marriage? These scriptures show us that with God in our marriages our vows till death to us part become easy.

God brought us together, but have we started making our own rules as we go let’s study or word get back to the basics and least God back into or marriages.
