I know every couple will say that the foundations of their marriage have a different meaning. Here’s where I share the specific foundation of my marriage to my husband. In addition, my husband will share his meaning in a his guest post for next month. Of course he will be making several guest appearances. This blog would not be available here on the internet without him.
Our my marriage stands firmly on our relationships with God, and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. After dating for 6 months, I told Randy that he treated me with the upmost respect that I had not seen much before. He treated me with respect as human being and as a black woman. I was so grateful to God for the day we met. He never treated me like a sex object as so many other men had done in the past. Randy looked me straight in my eyes. With a tone so sweet he told me that he honored women according to the words in the Bible. He explained that his mother taught him to honor women since he came from a woman. In addition, he said when he entered a relationship that he knew would be eternal that he stood by 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.
A couple of weeks later, I opened my Bible one evening for it to fall open to 1 Corinthians. I quickly flipped to verse 13. I read it as I had done so many times before. Yet, this time around after reading the entire chapter, I was literally in tears. Soon as I made it to verse three, my mind went right to this amazing man of faith in God. He was a man who had unexpectedly entered my life when I wasn’t looking for love. I knew at that moment he was every part of the universal definition of love in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. By the time we got married, our marriage had been solidified in by his love actions. Each love action was that of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.
If we had not meet that day in Publix, I don’t know where I would be without him. I don’t know where I would be without his love. You see I only had one other relationship before we met that I was extremely serious about and that was with my oldest son’s father. Eventually we parted ways because of his reaction towards my experience of postpartum depression after our child was born. To be plain, I honestly do not know where I would be if I had not meet the man who exemplifies God’s love.
In order to express how my husband exemplifies the foundation of our marriage a 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 man, I will have to give an explanation with extensive details. An explanation with details of how he exemplifies each verse in our day to day marriage. I will share those beautiful, honest, tear jerking details with you all in next month’s marriage blog post. I don’t want to give away the whole story in this post.
So until next time beautiful souls of God!
