20 Wonderful Years (Acts 20:24)
Acts 20:24, But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
On this day, back in 2000, Joy and I became husband in wife. And Yes! If I had to do it all over again, I would have married her again. I’m so grateful to God and to her parents. I’m thankful that she fears the LORD (Proverbs 31:30). Her name speaks for itself and supersedes the value of great riches (Proverbs 22:1).
Joy has faithfully stuck by my side for 20 years, undoubtedly representing the term “helpmeet”. Anyone can love while living on the mountain peaks, but it takes grace to love someone and to remain in love with them while down in the valleys. It is easy for people love the LORD while the sun is shining, but when the dark clouds are overhead their love begins to decrease and fade away. I give God the glory and praise for these 20 wonderful years. Had it not been for Him our marriage would not have thrived and survived.
Here are some reasons why.
Here are 20 more:
PRAYER: LORD, I thank You for allowing me to marry a wonderful person. I praise You for giving me a woman of character, devotion, and integrity because she has deepened and developed our marriage. May our marriage bring pleasure to You and may others see You in our marriage. In Jesus name. AMEN!
