Many people ask what it takes to have a good and lasting marriage. There are many things, but most importantly, there must be three in a marriage: a husband, a wife, and our Lord. Dr. Billy Graham was once asked for advice by an engaged couple. Listen to his wise answer..." What difference can Christ make in your marriage? First, He will give you a new love for each other -- a love based not on your own selfish needs and desires, but on what you can do to help each other. That type of love -- the type Christ has for us. In addition, Christ will help you stay pure and committed to each other, because you know He brought you together and is always with you. Jesus said, "Therefore, what God has joined together, let man not separate" (Matthew 19:6)." Wise words for all couples.
It amazes me that even before God created me, He knew that one day I would meet the one "whom my soul" would love and we would eventually be joined in marriage. It amazes me that even though we lived in different areas of the world and at times on different continents, the Lord knew that one day we would cross paths. I am so very thankful that our Lord planned for this little girl to one day meet this little boy and fall in love.
