Psalms - Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other.
Marriage is difficult, life is difficult. Having a person by your side every day for the rest of your life to grow in faith with and to share the ups and downs and every moment in between is worth the work. Our children witness much more than we sometimes realize and we not only owe it to ourselves, but to them and their future spouses as well.
And the second is like it: Respect the gift of life God has given you and be true to yourself as well.
Ask God into your marriage and keep Christ the center of your home. Today I am grateful to be married to my best friend. Darby, each and every day you make me smile, laugh, cry, cringe, soar and grow. Thank you for the happiest eleven years of my life and for the years and years to come. I know that no matter what triumphs and heartaches come our way, they will be possible because YOU will be by my side.
Thank you for loving me regardless of my flaws, stretch marks, insanely compulsive ways and my daily shenanigans. Each day you make me proud to be your wife, grateful to be raising our kids together and excited to grow and learn together. Thank you for making our marriage and our children a priority, for being a positive, hard-working role model each and every day and for spending time with me and only me.

He knows the LORD may forgive them because he knows he has forgiven in the past.Pat Barrett ~ God Is So Good (You Are Worthy) Lyrics
Will you prolong your anger to all generations? The plea is based on what the LORD has done before. But the Psalmist cries out for restoration, salvation and revival. He knows the LORD is faithful to his covenant.
Part of the covenant is the LORD forgives the sin and transgression of those who repent and ask him for forgiveness. He is certain the LORD will speak.
Probably through his prophets.
Has the LORD spoken peace to you? Give them an opportunity to repent and be restored. The LORD did this time and time again.
PSALM 85:10-13 AMP
He did not have to send the prophets. But he did because he gives his wayward people every opportunity he can. What will this look like?
