Bill and I were like every young married couple. Madly in love and our marriage was invincible. But after 13 years, our marriage fell apart and I sought a divorce. Our daughter was six years old. It was one of the worst times in our lives! I became cynical. What is love, anyway, I asked.
One reason I divorced Bill was because our daughter, Jessica, had not only NEVER been in church, but I was losing my once strong faith. You see, we met while we were in a Christian ministry group, called “Christ is the Answer.” After we left the ministry, we married and then left the church.
So as soon as we divorced, I not only dove into church, but into God’s Word, the Bible. As I searched for God’s will for Jessica and I, I discovered not only what love means, but what LOVE is! These scriptures were part of my return not only to the Lord, but to reconciliation to Bill!
That was 23 years ago, on August 19, 2012! Happy Anniversary Bill! I am ever so grateful we were able to remarry and live happily ever after!
1 John 4:13-16 This is how we know that we live in Him and He in us: He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent His Son to be the Savior of the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.
