The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.
If there is one thing I have learned after nearly 19 years of marriage, it’s this: I don’t know.
I don’t know the right answers. Sometimes I don’t even know the right questions. I don’t know how to do it all. I don’t know if I want to be able to anyway.
I don’t know why some days everything gets on my nerves. I don’t know how to keep the laundry caught up. I don’t know how to make coupon-ing fun for me.
But most of all, I don’t know how to have a solid marriage without the wisdom that comes from Christ.
Our marriages don’t really need one more seminar or Bible study or couples retreat … what our marriages need is Jesus. And that comes only as we submit ourselves to Him and make spending time with Him the priority — as individuals, as couples, and as families.
Lord, place inside us a desire to seek You first. Fill our hearts with a longing for Your presence and time spent with You. Cause us to seek You and to know the wisdom that comes only from knowing You. May You have the priority in our hearts and lives. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
