AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH; so they are no longer two, but one flesh. Mark 10:8
Today is me and my wife’s anniversary, married 12 years ago on the shore of Jamaica. We’ve been together for 20 years now and it would be hard to imagine life without her. We complete each other, and she’s supported me and brought out the best of me. And with our wonderful kids, we have built a family that feel so blessed to be part of and thank God every day.
When people say “their better half” this is from the principle in The Bible “Two become One Flesh”. When you get married you make a covenant with your spouse under God that is sealed by your confession of your love for each other. Specifically, your wedding vows. When you say your wedding vow, you’re making a confession or proclamation of your covenant with your spouse.
“What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.” Mark 10:9
Marriage is full of love and joy, however there will be times when your marriage is tested. That’s when you are your spouse should stay united and let no one separate you. When you continue to practice the principle “Two become One Flesh” you understand whatever you do to harm your spouse , harms you.
I thank God that he led me and Heidi to find each other. And he blessed us with our two children. I’m thankful that he gave me the opportunity to be a husband and a Father, and pray that I can continue to lead, support, defend, and encourage this family with love in Jesus Name Amen!
