Our testimony

We were young.
We were in a “sort of love.” We thought it was true love. It wasn’t.
We got married.
We had babies.
That love stayed the same.
Through out the years we didn’t really know how to love each other.
That little bit of love we had, we began to lose it.
I needed a husband.
He didn’t know how to be one.
He needed a wife.
I didn’t have a clue.
Satan was the head of the household for many years.
Rebellion set in.
I began to drift away.
Hope was lost.
Trust was lost.
I was home but mentally gone.
All the broken promises.
Broken hope.
Broken…just broken.
I went farther and farther away.
He slowly tried to fight for it.
I was too far gone.
Satan blinded the heartache with sin.
Then, he had enough.
He left and the papers were signed.
My world was shattered.
I screamed.
I cried myself to sleep.
He told me he didn’t love me anymore.
I tried to fight for it.
He was gone.
It was too late.
Hatred rose up.
Resentment set in.
Two months of chaos.
But, God was working in that storm.
I didn’t see it.
I slowly began to let go.
The peace was setting in.
I had the papers.
I signed then.
I was almost divorced.
My phone rings. It was him.
He wants to talk.
He said something inside him has changed.
I cry.
God has changed us.
Three months of hell is over.
We have allowed God to be in control.
Now we are made for each other.
He changed us.
After 8 years of marriage we are finally loving with the Fathers love.
True love.
Wanting good for each other.
Learning how to be a husband and wife.
Praying for each other.
Happy to the fullest extent.
Now, here we are in our 12th year of marriage.
Knowing the Fathers love.
Certain of our purpose in this marriage.
We have changed for His glory.
Remembering the past but Rejoicing in the present.
This isn’t the end, it’s just the beginning.
Abiding in his love, forever.
