For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable. (Hebrews 4:12-13)
As our 2nd wedding anniversary is coming upon us, I can’t help but to think of the many beautiful things Jules and I have enjoyed together.
Times we have spent dancing in the kitchen.
Belly laughs with our kids.
And serving God together.
These are just a few of the many memories that we have written in our book of life together but the one thing that will always rise to the top of the list that we committed to and shared together.
The one thing that has never ceased no matter if the song ended.
The one effort that stayed lit even when the candle didn’t.
The warmth that dwelled inside when the laughs were not there.
And how we served even when we were in dry seasons that pulled apart us serving together.
We relentlessly studied The Word of God.
Without it, we would have steered aimlessly at sea and would have never survived the storms that life manifested. We would have never been taught about true thankfulness and obedience and missed God’ intention for our covenant and we would have missed building our house with Jesus as the cornerstone.
Traditionally, the 2nd anniversary is celebrated with a gift of cotton but for me one of the best gifts I can continue to give my wife is like the 1st… paper.
The paper that expresses The Word of God.
So as we move past another milestone together, I will continue to honor the commitment we made together on the altar in which we wed and we will commit to God as our center and use His word to guide us in our journey together. (tweet this!)
