The Mystery of Marriage

AwaitingtheKing_2010

There is mystery in romance.  What is that initial spark that draws two people together?  How does that initial spark turn into a blazing romance?  How is that romance sustained over a lifetime through the seasons, the challenges and the monotony — wherein two people who are so “other” become one?  Every romance, every marriage that has weathered the years all point to a greater love…Your divine love.

Jesus,  I feel Your ache for oneness.  It is a mystery why Your heart would burn with such passion for broken humanity.  Yet there is no denying that Your heart is an eternal raging fire of divine love.  What else would have compelled You to exchange heaven for a humble stable, to be born for the sole purpose of an excruciating criminal’s crucifixion?!   At Your core is romance, the longing to be one with me forever.  I look forward to spending eternity going deep into the mystery, the joy, the fulfillment of being married, of being one with You Jesus.  Amen
