Sex, Marriage and Fairytales

I was automatically moved after watching this video and couldn't wait to share it with you.  It's a video that really hits close to home for so many of us.  I can count on one hand the number of couples who are in the midst of separating or divorcing in the past few months.  It hurts my heart, I can't imagine how Jesus felt.
Take the time to watch this video.  Listen to the words, replay it over and over again.  The fundamental message for me was do not put your spouse on the level of God.  Pursue Jesus as your foundation first!  Don't raise your partner with the expectation that they will never fail and if they do it would be the end.  In the message it talks about how we would not abandon our children if they spilled something on the floor or hurt us.  So why is it that we do that with our spouses?
It's not the love that sustains the promise, it's the promise that sustains the Love.  Until Death do us Part does not mean, until the feelings go away.  Stand firm on the Word, keep your eyes fixed on Him and He will reward you with a lifelong friend and partner.  Do not give up, on one another.  I encourage you to read Ephesians 5 and press into the word of God.  He will be the Foundation that will get you through anything.
