A Blessed Marriage That Honors God

A Blessed marriage. Do all marriages honor God? That is debatable in so many ways. This Christian poem outlines God’s intention for marriage as outlined in His Word. There is so much more to consider when it comes to a God honoring marriage. Even male and female unions can get out of control. This leads to divorce. Violence, despair, and adultery are just a few of the many reasons couples get divorced.

A Blessed Union

A blessed marriage- man and woman holding hands facing each other and smiling

He and she were then there made.
God was creating, yes, on the 6th day.

She from he was created by Him,
To be a helpmate, lover, friend.

Be fruitful and multiply was then there told.
History begins as futures they unfold.

Many know the blessing it brings
To share a union between her, him.

Let your future be a thing of grace.
Jesus wants your sins to erase.

So, take today by its two horns.
Fully make your spiritual reform.

In His word then do there abide.
Hope will now in your heart reside.

Confusion, no longer bed be making.
No day seen Christ hasn’t overtaken.

Evil knows the time here is short.
Heavenly things it will try to thwart.

It is a lovely thing when truth is found.
From death to life, no longer bound!

Scripture References:
Gen 1:27-28 “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created he him. Male and female created he them. And God blessed them. And God said unto to them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it:…”

Gen 2:24 “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”

The enemy knows the time is short/heavenly things it will try to thwart.- We see this more and more. LGBQ rights and same-sex marriages. These things ought not to be. Does God still love those who go against His word? Absolutely, God is love. Does God still love me when I go against His Word? Absolutely. But He still desires a right relationship with us. That involves repentance.

I didn’t always hold my husband’s heart in high regard.

I lied. Especially regarding finances. I kept the budget, paying bills on time and things of that nature. When things got tight, I charged groceries, gas, other stuff without his permission. Then I was so ashamed, I let it get out of hand. I handled things poorly and when things got out of control, I didn’t know what to do. So continued to hide our debt. Granted, he never kept me accountable. But I should have come clean sooner than I did.

In my newest devotional book, Redeemed Reflections:  I wrote a poem: “Marriage, truth is key,” and did we think to access heaven through lies and falsehood?

(Teaching Christian Poetry / Christian Poems)

A blessed marriage is one that’s between a man and a woman and one that protects each other’s hearts and stays away from falsehood and lies.
