Things are always better with God. Amanda and I have learned the value of putting God first in our marriage. We always have the choice of going our way or going God’s way. His way always seems to be better:)
I read this scripture this morning that I thought I would share with you today:
It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in human beings.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes.
So simple, but we miss it when we face decisions in our life. I have a friend who we will call Jack. Jack seems to be open about everything when things are going good, but when he hits a speed bump in life he closes up, and cuts off all input from those around him. He reverts to trust in himself (human beings) and it always takes him down a bad road. In his mind there is some picture of the perfect marriage that doesn’t line up with the word of God. The problem is that he won’t let God in to the areas that are really hurt, from past situations, past relationships….and the hurt tends to resurface from time to time. There was a billboard that read, “Enjoyed the wedding, how about inviting me to the marriage?” We have these big moments in our life that we put so much effort towards, for example a wedding, but put little effort towards the actual marriage. Life is made up the little things, the little steps. God is concerned about the little and big things and His way is always better. What ways could it be better for you if you let God in?
