13 years and counting…all I can say is WOW! 13 years nowadays is like a milestone. Couples are not staying together for decades anymore.
You know sometimes I sit and think about where we started and where we are now. All, I can say is the Lord has definitely been a strong active member in this marriage.
We have faced so many ups and downs, that when I think about it I always wonder “how did we STAY TOGETHER?” Joining two people of different backgrounds, different upbringing, and different personalities will breed a complicated union.
Marriage is hard and sometimes you think the easiest thing to do is to just run & hide. We must not allow that stinking thinking to consume us.
I was listening to Jaheim and Ledisi new song, “Stay Together” and was reminded that true love and committed people can stay together.
There is a verse in the song that just resonates in my body when I hear it:
I know (I know) whatever comes our way
You know, (You know) you and me, we gonna stay… together, (together)
Baby we’ve been through so much (so much)
Our love is so strong, you know, (you know I know)
ohhh you and me, (we gonna stay) We gonna stay, (together) together, oh yeah
This verse speaks loudly about the commitment this couple has made to one another. Nowhere in the song are there any negative or wavering statements about their love and commitment to each other.
The tongue is a powerful tool. We can use it for good or bad. Use your tongue to speak positive statements and affirmations over your marriage and your spouse. Allow your words to confirm your commitment to your spouse to STAY TOGETHER through sickness and health, through the good times and the bad times.
The words you use will control your actions, your attitudes, and your motives.
How are you going to use the power of your tongue today? Will it be to condemn your marriage and your spouse or will you use it to uplift your marriage and your spouse?
It’s your choice! I choose to STAY TOGETHER!
