Now there are a lot of people who don’t believe in God, but there are many of us out there that do. I believe with everything within me that he exists and sustains me. With that being said, I believe in keeping him first in every aspect of my life especially my marriage.

Marriage a beautiful thing, but it has its shares of difficulties, from time to time. One reason is that you go from being a single individual to be a married couple. And though you may share a lot of things in common, you are still two different people trying to bring two individuals into one world.

I believe in putting God first because he provides you with wisdom and patience to be able to bring these two individuals into the one world. Also when difficulties arise he brings gives you wisdom and patience to overcome those obstacles too.

Let’s just put it out there. No marriage is perfect, but God makes it perfect for each couple. You don’t have fairytales like on tv where you never have any trouble. God gives you a marriage that teaches you how to work through the troubles.

God is love. He provides a perfect example of what it means to love and forgive. Jesus loved us all the way to the cross so that our sins could be forgiven. If what he did for us was not love, I don’t know what is. He teaches you how to love your spouse and forgive them if we feel like we may have been wrong.

I could write more on why it is important to let God be first in your marriage, but I am pretty sure by now that you get the picture. Just know that worshipping, praying, and loving God together, brings many many benefits to your marriage.
But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder (Mark 10:6-9 KJV).”
