Vows, Covenants and Promises- For Better, For Worse
probably already have some great stories to share. There is a street near downtown Kansas City that is notorious for having lots of potholes. The city works and works, but the road is rather rough. When I lived in the City I would avoid this road. At the time I drove a small sedan and every time I would hit that pothole it would rattle my car. Even though it was a regular road that I had to travel on I finally decided to take another route. So many couples in marriage feel like the "for worse" seems to be a rocky road they travel on all too often. For worse means that you will stick it out during the rough spots, the tough times. If you are going through a tough time right now in your marriage, talk to someone. Find a good marriage counselor, talk to your pastor or some other trusted Christian friends. Talk to some people who have been married for at least 20 years. They might know a thing or two about longevity in marriage. All in all, you made a vow and under God to be there during the good times and the bad. Be there for each other and work out your struggles. Do not let a small argument or disagreement turn into years of frustration and anger. Pray and read your Bible together. Go in peace and go with God.
