You will never leave your husband; it's not even an option. You are a loyal wife.
Does your husband also have your heart? I don't just mean most of your heart...most of your love. Does he have all of it? Perhaps you have saved a tiny piece of your heart for someone else? Maybe a past love who still resides somewhere in there? Maybe a locked chamber that holds an unknown man that from time to time knocks to come out when you read certain books or watch certain movies?
I heard a great line from a movie this past weekend that brought into focus this whole topic of "Ex Prep." Read it carefully and ponder it for a minute:
"What kind of marriage will that be? Knowing I have your loyalty, but he has your heart?"
Loyalty and heart, that is what we are to give to our husbands (and they us). I'm going to outline a few truths below, and then we are going to dig into them over the next few days (yes, we, I want you to engage in this discussion with me). Here we go:
- Marriage pictures Christ and the Church.
- We can choose who are hearts go to and belong to.
- We can choose how we act.
- We can pray and God will help us.
- It is not a mistake who your spouse is.
- We cannot give our hearts fully to our husbands until they are first fully God's.
As we unfold these six truths, let's be in prayer about what the Lord would have us learn, where we need healing, sin that needs to be washed away, and how God would use these truths to grow us into more mature and godly women...and wives. Let's come with humble hearts...ready, willing, and vulnerable.
