Marriage Monday: The Sanctuary of Christian Marriage

It’s first Monday of the Month and I thank the Lord for giving me this opportunity to join other Christians sharing thoughts how God has touched their marriage. This is my first time in Marriage Mondays and I felt so blessed to be here.
As I read Andrea at Embracing Him, I was really inspired and encourage writing a post about my marriage. I am still young to be sharing about my marriage but I know this is all for the glory of God.

A sanctuary is a place of refuge and protection; shelter. Our marriage should be a place of refuge and protection for each other. It is allowing your partner to feel that with God’s help they are safe with you no matter what the situation may become. In scarcity and in abundance, in sickness and in health or no matter what the situation may be. It is allowing them to know that they still love you and accept you no matter what.

Two years ago, my husband has been diagnosed with Mitral Valve Prolapse (MVP) and suffered a lot of uncomfortable moments at that time. He can’t enjoy life the way he wanted to and he did come to the point of being depressed. I was with him during that moment but sometimes I get affected with how he feels and ending up not understanding his situation. I just end up praying and praying and praying, and God’s grace was so abundant in our lives that He allowed me to feel what my husband is going through. I praise God that he healed my husband from that sickness.

I can say that our marriage can only be a place of protection, a place of refuge when God is in it. When God is involve in every aspect of our marriage we can never get wrong with everything we do. We can always have a sanctuary in our marriage.

2 Corinthians 12:9 “ My grace is sufficient for you for my power is made perfect in weaknesses

1 Corinthians 2:3 “I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling,

    Nice blog bogs! I agree with you.

  2. I enjoyed your post today! I have only been married 2 years and in the first year and a half of our marriage, my husband (who was only 40 at the time) had to undergo a total right hip replacement (as a result of having juvenile rheumatoid arthritis years earlier as a child). I can totally identify with what you have been through with an ill spouse. I pray that your husband is getting better each day!

    Keep up the great posting on Marriage Monday!

  3. Very nice post sweetie.

  6. Thanks for joining us at Marriage Monday! I enjoyed reading your post. Thank you for being so transparent and giving us a glimpse into your life.

    My favorite part of your post was this sentence: It is allowing your partner to feel that with God’s help they are safe with you no matter what the situation may become.

    I never thought of my husband feeling “safe” with me, but this is exactly what the sanctuary of marriage provides. With God’s help we are safe with one another!

    Thank you for giving me so much to think about! I enjoyed my visit here today!
