I Choose You Today And Everyday

I choose you

He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord. Proverbs 18:22

Marriage is a covenant that we willingly enter into, a gift that we happily receive and a choice we freely make. God does not force anyone to get married or to marry any specific person. You may have been under pressure from men to get married or to marry a particular person but in the end it is your decision.     Adam was given options when he was presented with other animals. The bible said that, “So Adam gave names to all cattle, to all birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was found no helper comparable to him”. Genesis 2:20.  When Adam saw what he liked he exclaimed “This is now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh. She shall be called woman, because she was taken out of Man” Genesis 2:23.

From the beginning of establishment of marriage, God gave man a choice on who to marry. You were part of the decision making process of your marriage. You chose your spouse from the billions of other eligible bachelors and bachelorettes in the world. You could have married Jane or Jonah but you chose your spouse. You chose your spouse for a reason and whatever your reason was for choosing your spouse; understand that your spouse is good for you. Therefore receive your spouse, accept your spouse, honor and celebrate your spouse because in him/her your goodness is complete. Your spouse indeed makes you good.
