The best way to have a successful marriage is to have a God-centered marriage. This only happens when both the husband and wife have God at the center of their own lives and then He can be the center of their marriage too. I have never met a couple who truly lived a life where God was the most important thing in their lives who where headed to the courthouse to get a divorce.
Meet Michael McIntyre, and his beautiful wife Tiiffany. They are the youth pastors at Faith Church in Hinton, OK. They just had their first baby, Gunner. Michael loves to hunt and fish and is frequently seen wearing camo. In fact, Gunner’s carseat and stroller are made of camo fabric. It’s super cute, by the way. So when I saw this precious picture of Michael and Gunner I made the comment that I had a hard time finding Gunner because he was hidden in his Dad. What an absolutely beautiful picture of how we should live our lives. Colossians 3:3 says “For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God.” (MSG) Living a life that is completely hidden in Christ ensures the best possible life. The second thing I noticed about this wonderful pictures was the contented smile on Gunner’s little face. I promise that even though your life will continue to have hard times when you are completely hidden in God you will be able to walk through them with this kind of contentment, trusting God to handle everything.
I love this quote, “A woman’s heart should be so hidden in God that a man has to seek Him just to find her.” ~Max Lucado
I want to encourage every wife today, truly live a life that is completely hidden in God. The rewards in your marriage will be far bigger than you could ever imagine.
