Marriage Monday - What Does Your T-Shirt Say?

1st Monday Every Month at Chrysalis
I am sad that one of my very good friends, Christine at Fruit In Season, is retiring her blog for an extended period of time. I will miss her wisdom, encouragement, and example very much.

e-Mom of Chrysalis has adopted Marriage Monday from Christine. She says: Marriage Monday will be meeting here the first Monday of every month, for starters. Our topic is wide open today, and I'd love to hear your marriage wisdom. Please feel free to come back any time this week to link up. If you've never participated in Marriage Monday before, here's your chance to think outside the blog and jump in!

I have loved Marriage Monday and enjoyed being a participant. For the first week at Chrysalis there is not a specific topic. Today I want to give you something to ponder.

What do you see in the picture that follows?Lovehate


This T-shirt and the implications behind it fascinate me. I stopped to consider how close love and hate could dwell in my heart. It also made me think about what my husband sees.

We who live day-in and day-out in an unequally yoked marriage struggle with the heart. We love our spouse and we love our God. At times they are diametrically opposed. Our heart clashes over loyalties and decisions. We fret over our children and their eternity. Decisions about money and entertainment can be enormously frustrating.

However, in spite of living in a spiritually mismatched marriage I am able to wear the banner of love. The T-shirt they see is love.

Psalm 51:10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

This is my prayer.

Have a blessed and awesome Monday. Lynn

Marching Around Jericho is a spiritual guide. As you read through the pages, powerful and transformative instruction and equipping takes place. We follow Jesus as he leads us around the walls, imparting kingdom truths with each passing, finally arriving at the gates of the walled-off city, our spouse’s unbelieving heart. After the circles in prayer are complete, we arrive fully prepared to command the walls to crumble and be removed, making a way for our spouse to step from the rubble of lies and captivity, into faith and freedom!
