Whether you are single or married, this poem’s intention is to help you look more deeply to Jesus to either better your current marriage, or prepare you for your future marriage.
”It’s impossible” said pride.
“It’s risky” said experience.
“It’s pointless” said reason.
“Give it a try” whispered the heart
Marriage is like the Army, everybody complains, but you’d be surprised at how many re-enlist.
“Love is a verb, not a noun. It is active. Love is not just feelings of passion and romance. It is behavior. If a man lies to you, he is behaving badly and unlovingly toward you. He is disrespecting you and your relationship. The words “I love you” are not enough to make up for that. Don’t kid yourself that they are.”
― Susan Forward, When Your Lover Is a Liar: Healing the Wounds of Deception and Betrayal
