Marriage Monday-How We Survived A Marriage Crisis

Perfect topic for this time in our lives, of course God's timing is always right on time. All of you know the crisis we went through, and survived back in December through May, with my dear lovebug. Now, we are right in the middle of another crisis, this time with my health. How are we surviving it? Like we do all areas of our life, we are clinging tightly to one another, and of course, clinging tightly to our precious Father. We have no clue what tomorrow holds, but praise God, we know who holds our tomorrow. We have been together almost 26 years, and our love is rock solid, due to the fact that it is built upon the Rock of ages. Going blind is a scary thought, but lovebug is deeply imprinted inside my heart and soul. I will forever see him through eyes of love. On the way home from seeing his dad last night, who by the way, was moved into a regular room today, praise God, a song came on the radio called, I need You Jesus. I started lifting my hands in deep praise, singing, until I lost my voice due to the amount of crying I was doing. Tears were running down my face, my emotions were totally going wild. Lovebug, of course, became very concerned. He pulled me over next to him, and embraced me. He asked me what was wrong, and how could he help me. I said, just keep loving me, no matter what happens, please do not leave me. When, and if the darkness of blindness comes, please do not leave me in the dark alone. I need you lovebug. He said, I promise, I will never leave you, never. I will light your dark places as much as I can, guide you, hold your hand, do whatever is needed to keep you feeling safe and secure. That is love, tried, and true love, forever. Thank You Father for my marriage, thanks for being our source of light and love for eternity. I do need You Father, so very very much. Please come to my rescue, be with me tomorrow at my eye appointment. Trusting You always, in all ways. I love You Father with all I am.

Ohhhh Denise... (sigh) You bless me so with your Lovebug & you! This is so beautiful! Shows not only your love for one another but your peace and Your Rock as you draw from one another and Christ! I'm so glad that you both have each other to ride the waves of these storms and find your anchor in Jesus!

Your Father goes with you and He is Your strength and Your shield. Your Rock, Your Light. He loves you so much and so do I! So many do. I'm going with you too and praying all the way...let us know.

Trusting and believing,
Peggy

I will be praying for you and your husband as you go to your appointment tomorrow. God will see you through this, as He always sees us through everything. This is a tough one, but God is faithful, as you have so often testified. Praise Him for giving us wonderful husbands who are supportive and kind. We are all praying for you.

Oh my sister, I have been praying for you. I must admit that I have cried on your behalf. I know the unknown in my own health issues makes me cry at times and blindness seems like a frightening word. I thank Jesus for your lovebug standing next to you and for Jesus being faithful to walk you through whatever the doctors may say. I continue to pray for complete healing. I love you so very much!!

What a wonderful marriage you have! He sounds so sweet! Putting God as the head of your marriage you can't go wrong. :)

Rebecca said...

I thank God with you for your Lovebug. Praying with diligence for your eyes, but also that your faith not waver or fail you!

Wow! Your post brought me to tears! It is a gift to be loved like that!

My mother was diagnosed with colon cancer in June (the day after Dave's dad died!) and it's been very hard for me. Dave lost HIS Mom to cancer 4 years ago and he is such a rock for me. Sometimes all he does is hold me close to him and that is enough! Men are fixers and he knows that HE can't fix this one for me.

The love and commitment of a good and Godly man are to be celebrated! Praying for a good report!
