Hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving! It’s been such an encouragement to me this past week as God has had people share with either me or my wife how much they love Wade in the Word. I am so thankful that God has given me this ministry and that it is reaching people with God’s Word!
I want to conclude this little series on Marriage a Work in Progress with the idea I left off with a couple weeks ago – marriage is about the journey not the destination. It seems like posts on the topic of marriage are particularly popular. I think it’s because most people who are married- myself included- face challenges as we try and walk this life together with the person we’ve committed to live our life with.
HOW DID WE GET HERE?
As a pastor I have counseled many married couples. I can’t tell you the number of times a married couple, while sitting across from me, have said, “HOW DID WE GET HERE?” The answer to that question is usually simple … they are living together but really apart. My heart goes out to the other married couples who never reach a pastor or counselor’s office and instead find themselves sitting across from each other in a divorce lawyer’s office asking, “How did we get here?” Or, there is the husband and wife who find themselves taking their youngest off to college and as they are driving away, look at each other like, now what? Thinking, “How did we get here?” Others may find themselves saying, “We bought the dream house and all we do now is fight about it!” Asking, “How did we get here?” Perhaps you know someone facing these situations or maybe you are like one of these coupes I’ve described.
