Eight years ago we were declared one flesh. The two shall become one. What God has joined together let no man tear asunder.
There is something in the declarations of God that brings my feet to journey. Just as He declares me holy, or declares me a citizen of heaven, or declares me free, His declaration is the start of a journey to holiness and citizenship and freedom. It is a fact being worked out in my life. It is a promise I can come to when I fail seeming to prove myself far less than holy, a citizen of Hell, or a slave to sin.
And so it is with God's declaration of one-ness between a man and a woman. It is at one time a statement of fact, a promise yet to see complete fulfillment, and the beginning of a journey. Praise be to God that He sees the fulfillment before the promise is made.
Chris and I journey together. I am so glad that he is my husband. That God chose Him to declare my one-ness with. With the excitement of knowing the fun we have had and the trepidation of knowing the sorrow over our years, I am looking forward with anticipation and joy to the next years on this journey.
I love you.
