What Does Marriage Mean to YOU?

What all hear various definitions

†of what marriage means.

Not realizing the consequences

†this often brings!

Thereís often a lack of commitment

and faithfulness.

Many still looking for a true source of happiness!

This institution, that God set up as a husband and wife.

Needs to have his spirit,

†to guide our life!

Itís no wonder why, thereís many falling apart!

Itís causing heartache and many broken hearts!

No court in the land can wash away sinís dark stain.

When adultery happens, things arenít the same!

May we all seek to ask God

†to strengthen our home!

Heís there to help us!

†When we feel all alone!

We need the blood of Jesus to daily cleanse us!

He wants to do this!† Because he loves us!

Jesus remains committed, faithful and strong!

His word will teach us whatís right and wrong!

May we seek HIS guidance and council!

Youíll find, that he is always most helpful!

Please JesusÖ Heal the broken families

†across this nation!

For only you can provide

†a much needed foundation!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
