Let marriage be held in honor by all. (Hebrews 13:4 NRSV)
A popular song in weddings is titled I WILL BE HERE. It's by Steven Curtis Chapman. The song is a simple declaration by Chapman that no matter what their marriage goes through, he will be there for his wife. Sadly, Chapman was inspired to write this song for his wife after he learned that his own parents were divorcing.
As Chapman says, "Seeing the pain of my parents' divorce caused Mary Beth and I to ask ourselves how we could prevent this in our marriage. We spent many hours together in prayer and through that process came to understand that to love and forgive unconditionally on a daily basis is the only way a marriage can last."
Dear God, forgive me as I forgive others. In Jesus name, Amen.
