MARRIAGE ISN'T WHAT YOU THINK



What cross are you carrying?

True Love is loving a person, someone that you love with all your soul...and they betray you or hurt you. Loving them in spite of that. 

I'm learning that type of love now. And it's only through the Holy Spirit and his strength in my weakness that I am able to do this.

In this time I am truly learning about what Love truly is and How much Christ loves us!


It hurts so bad...but I know I am being sanctified and he is allowing me to carry my cross for his glory. So he can purify me.

Love is Not  the fairy tale stuff we been lied to by the world and Disney movies. I have a desire to be a wife one day and God has revealed to me that I will be a wife and mother one day. So I am learning about marriage.

And Oh em gee he is PREPARING AND TRAINING ME FOR IT NO DOUBT.

Marriage is an example of Christ's relationship with the church. Point blank period. That is it's main purpose.

Not to have sex.
Not to have someone to always love you.
Not to have a family.

Yes all those things are attributes of marriage and are beautiful additions to it, BUT NOT THE MAIN REASON.

MARRIAGE IS ABOUT DYING TO YOURSELF AND SERVING THE OTHER PERSON, EVEN WHEN THEY ARE RUDE TO YOU, EVIL TO YOU, PISS YOU OFF, DON'T TREAT YOU HOW YOU WANT TO BE TREATED...IT'S A Dying TO YOURSELF CONSTANTLY.

MARRIAGE IS AN EPIC TOOL GOD USES TO SANCTIFY AND PURGE AND PURIFY HIS CHILDREN. HE CHOSE THE PERFECT PERSON THAT WILL AID IN CHISELING SIN OUT OF YOU.

I't's about women learning to submit and fight against that controlling spirit that wants us to dominate. Women learning to submit to their husbands as they do Christ. Why? It will purge us. It will perfect us. Because only the PURE IN HEART WILL SEE GOD! This is no play thing! We must be Holy It's about men learning to be leaders and to sacrifice his life for his bride to present her to Christ without spot our wrinkle.

LOVE IS NOT YOU GIVE 50 OR I'LL GIVE 50. OR IF YOU DO FOR ME I'LL DO FOR YOU. OR I'LL TREAT AND SERVE HIM IF HE TREATS AND SERVES ME. I'ts giving 100 when they are giving 20. It's serving the other person when YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE IT AND THEY ARE HURTING YOU.

GOD IS BLOWING MY MIND WITH THIS REVELATION. NOT JUST 'MARRIAGE LOVE'..THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE ALL LOVE IS LOVE.

LOVE IS NOT A FEELING..IT IS AN ACTION. YOU DON'T FALL IN LOVE OR OUT OF IT. YOU CHOSE TO LOVE SOMEONE.

Then he said to the crowd, "If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me." -Luke 9:23

TAKE UP YOUR CROSS
A CROSS MEANS DEATH
A CROSS MEANS DYING TO YOUR WILL, ENDURING THE PAIN SO THAT OTHERS MIGHT HAVE LIFE! 

Matthew 10:38
Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me.

ARE YOU WORTHY OF CHRIST? 

LOVE IS PATIENT.
LOVE IS KIND.
LOVE DOES NOT BOAST.
LOVE DOES NOT INSIST ON IT'S OWN WAY.
LOVE NEVER FAILS
LOVE DOES NOT KEEP A RECORD OF WRONGS
LOVE REJOICES IN THE TRUTH
IT ENDURES ALL THINGS.

It is easy to love those special people in your life when they are good to you...but what about when they hurt your feelings? What about when they lie to you? What if they cheat on you? What if they hurt you?

Are you out?

You must heed the voice of the Holy Spirit in this hour! Tell him who needs to be in your life and who doesn't . Ask him he will tell you. HE WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO LOVE. HE WILL SHOW YOU WHO TO LET GO.

AND HE WILL BLOW YOUR MIND.

YOU REALLY WANT ME TO LOVE THEM? BUT IT HURTS GOD.

"he was bruised for our transgressions"

THEY DON'T DESERVE IT GOD

"I loved you while you were yet a sinner..I died for you"

IN THEN IN THAT MOMENT GOD SHOWS YOU YOUR HEART. YOUR FILTHY HEART THAT IS SELFISH AND DEFILED. 

AND IT LEADS YOU TO REPENTANCE AND IT HUMBLES YOU...


But if you have a desire for something...you never idolize it..but you do train and prepare for it.. like a boxer would do preparing for the big match. Like a student would preparing for a test. You might not know exactly what to expect..but you will be well trained...

Here are some videos and blogs I've been reading to prepare me.
