How wonderful this sharing is. In the age in which we live, this truth is known by the few women who have come to know The Lord's Salvation experiencially. If you have not been made familiar w/these truths in your childhood, teenhood and young adulthood, your understanding and behavior will eventually become altered if you enter into a genuine relationship w/The Living God. If you view these truths from a legal aspect without experiencing The Holy Spirit's leading, you will assume that these words are an effort to try and manipulate you for your spouse's benefit. (The males in your life) I got saved after I was married. In fact, one year later as I began to realize that the vows I took didn't seem possible to honor as I found myself less than satisfied w/my marriage. My 18 year old mind had concluded that marriage to a handsome young man would fullfill that deep longing in my heart. I think most married people can confess that "it wasn't what they thought it would be". Thankfully, I did discover that it is God who fills the deepest part of our souls and the peace and joy and real love grow out of that wonderful relationship. I was very blessed that my young husband came to also know The Savior several years down the road as well. Being arranged according to God's beautiful, fulfilling relationship that He has for us has taken years of adjusting and learning to yeild to one another in Love and be honest and transparent w/each other to get through the rough spots. I'm so very thankful for God's Love and Mercy and Patience in working through His Holy Spirit to make me his female vessel to bless my male counterpart. It is definitely not a hardship in any way but The Cross of Christ definitely has to be applied to my untransformed soul. It's an awesome exchange to get the Best God has for marriage! I boast in The Grace of God through Christ Jesus My Lord and Savior!
