At the moment I am reading Sacred Marriage by Gary L Thomas.
I was online looking at books etc and this stuck out at me so from God’s prompting I bought it.
When it arrived I was very excited, been married before in the world before my walk with him began. I thought I knew a lot, well I don’t.
Reality check, time. I started reading and I can’t tell you the amount of times I have put it down because BAM it stops me in my tracks. Me a person who can read a book in a day or so, it’s been three weeks and I am only very close to 3/4 the way through.
What I mean is you think your ok, that you know what to do and how to treat people.
We never ever stop growing and learning, we are a work in progress.
What I love is, I was prompted to get this book to face myself and see where I went wrong before.
I remember once looking at my backyard (years ago) and their were pots, frying pans that I would pitch in absolute frustration. Yes I was immature and extremely bad-tempered, thank God he is changing me. (I married to get out of home, my words at the time. “If I have to marry the devil I will to get out of here”).
You know you have to watch what you say, words have power, yikes. (Long story) But it all went very very wrong rather quickly and I am not innocent here either.
Anyway thankfully I am on the right road, I know he is preparing me for what he has. Whether that be a husband to come or not, I was a captive audience one day and I heard the words “how can you be someone’s bride if you cannot be a bride of Christ”. That was then my goal to be his, then if he blessed me all well and good but it is not my main focus.
But if your thinking of marriage or if your lucky enough to be, do yourself a favour and have a read.
But be prepared, it might hit where it hurts, but if you grow from this, what a bonus.
