Day 16: Thank God for the Gift of Us
I thank my God in all my remembrance of you.
When counting your many blessings, are you sure to thank God for each other and your marriage? Believe it or not, whether you’re going through a rough patch or enjoying the time of your life, your marriage is a gift from God. One of the greatest blessings of marriage is that it was designed to be an expression of Jesus’ love for His bride, the church. This love is unconditional, forgiving, fulfilling, everlasting, and so much more. This is God’s design and plan for your marriage. That’s something that shouldn’t be taken for granted.
When you truly feel and express gratitude for your marriage, you experience a deep sense of awe and appreciation for each other. It is an acknowledgement that you value your relationship and treasure how beautiful and necessary it is to you. Remember, therefore, to give thanks often for the gift of your marriage, and each other. That which you appreciate, you cherish.
