Your Husband, Your Teammate

B & L at sunset

Today I celebrate 16 years of marriage with my love. 

Life hasn’t always been easy.  Marriage hasn’t always been easy, but we are a team!

When tough times come, it is tempting to allow circumstances to put a wedge between you and your husband.  It is easy to feel distant, as if you are living separate lives in separate worlds.

However, marriage is supposed to be the most intimate, united relationship on earth.  When God put man and woman together, they became one.

Got that?

They became one.

Genesis 2:24 - Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

When you married your husband, you became one with him.

You are teammates.
You are two halves of one extremely important covenant.
You share life together.  You share dreams together.  You share possessions.
You raise children together.
You bear with each other’s weaknesses and rejoice in strengths.
You are companions, friends, and lovers.
You are one.

If you are having a hard time in life, remember that your husband is your teammate.  He is not your enemy.  He is your most prized possession.  Ultimately, he is on your side, fighting for you and with you.

I am so thankful for the teammate God has given me!
