Marriage {The post I didn't want to write}

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy
John 10:10a

Marriage is difficult.
Marriage is beautiful.
Sometimes you wonder how you ended up together.
You wonder how you lived without him for so long.
Some days it's as simple and breathing.
Other days it's like chewing, swallowing and digesting nails.

Marriage is sacred. Yet thrown away so easily.
It's challenged, stretched and impossible.

I didn't want to write this post.
I didn't want to.
But the words kept coming to mind. 
Over. And over. And over.

The past few months I've seen this beautiful, challenging thing we call marriage to be killed and destroyed. 
To be torn apart while children are left carrying the baggage.

I've been there.
I wanted to leave.
I was dying to leave.
I couldn't breathe.
I couldn't look at him.

Thankfully God and my husband wasn't letting go.
God can repair. 
God can heal.
God can make our mess into a beautiful, real message.
He can take those broken pieces and make a beautiful masterpiece.

Therefore what God has joined together, let no man separate.
Matthew 19:6

I know it's tough.
I know it's easy to justify your choices because of their actions.

I'm asking YOU, yes YOU
pray for your marriage like never before.
Pray for their marriage.
And their marriage.

This love is
Special. Sacred. Difficult. Lovely. Amazing. Impossible. Crazy.
