Today marks seven years of marriage to Abigail. To say that we’ve had a perfect marriage and that we’ve always been happy in our marriage would be a lie. But to say that I am more faithful to God because of my marriage to Abigail would be the truth… and one I need every day.
Gary Thomas is famous for saying:
“God designed marriage to make you holy, not happy.”
I would agree. Because of Abigail, I pursue Jesus more faithfully and fervently than when I was single; more joy is found in our home; and in the laughter and tears, I have my best friend.
It doesn’t seem like seven years, and it certainly doesn’t seem like long enough.
