Not In My House: Taking a Stand For Your Marriage
All around us worlds colliding. Love once gloriously wonderful torn apart.
Hearts breaking. Children numb. Waiting 20 years to cry.
Husbands are settling. Wives are talking.
Christian marriages are hardly different than the masses. Hope is lost.
Not in My House. Not on my watch. I’m Fighting for you. I’m not settling.
We’re not settling. Not us.
Perfection I don’t know. Only forgiveness, both forgiving and being forgiven.
Persevering I do know. Healing I know as well.
I have to fight. I have to set boundaries. I have to be honest even when it hurts.
I will, even when it hurts a little.
I have to cherish, to remember, to honor and to lead. I will not be passive, ignorant or arrogant. I will lead humbly.
I will not overspend, overwork or overindulge.
I will learn self control.
I will be here. I will be here for you. I will be here for them. I will be here for Him. I will be here so the world can have hope. The way it could be is….different. And it is real.
