Holy God, You are all-powerful. With You, I have nothing to fear. You are my conqueror and redeemer. You know the cries of my heart and the injustice around me. Overwhelm my heart and circumstances with Your justice so that I may rest in You despite the fear and turmoil in my heart. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Marriage is a beautifully messy entanglement of two people’s vulnerabilities. A husband and wife can bring healing and joy into each other’s hearts more deeply than any other person can. But because the core of that intimacy is rooted in transparency, honesty, and trust, a husband and wife also learn the strategy and accumulate the arsenal for how to destroy one another. This is why anger in marriage can be so damaging. This is why we must practice forgiveness and self-control.

Thought for the Week: Mark 2:1-12

Lord, so many concerns take first place over my need for You. Forgive me. Sit with me, Lord, and sift through my wedding to-do’s, my daily routine, my growing anxieties, my distorted emotions, my physical pains, my shadowed perspective, and my imperfect relationships. Let the un-urgent and the trivial fall away. Leave me instead with a vital understanding that my greatest need is You. Then all else will fall into its proper place on my priority list. You are enough. Be enough for me today. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
