Trust: That our trust in our love, in each other, and in God never fails
But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.
Endurance: That our loves endures all things and never ends
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.
1 Corinthians 13:7-8
Wisdom: That we grow wise and that our hearts seek the wisdom of God
Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding.
Humility: That everything we do be done in love for others and the Lord
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
Friendship: That our friendship is always a pillar of our marriage
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.
Protection: That the Lord protects our home and our family
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust”.
Oneness: That we grow and act as one inseparable heart as God intended
So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.
Commitment: That our commitment to one another guides us through life
Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
Thankfulness: That we are mindfully thankful of our blessings from a loving God
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.
Blessings for the Home: That the Lord blesses our home and marriage
but he blesses the home of the righteous.
Blessings to you and your marriage, whatever stage it is in!
