Every married couple has experienced distance in their marriage.  It’s not a matter of will it come, but when will it be here.  Life encroaches on our relationship and the enemy attacks marriage and family every single day; we’re out-numbered.  As I was reading my devotions this morning the Lord lovingly reminded me of the wisdom of Saint John Paul II, one of the great guardians of marriage and family.

This morning I want to share a couple of scriptures and prayers from my devotional.  May these prayers strengthen you for the journey this week.

~Mathew 19:4-6

[Jesus] said in reply, “Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife and the two shall become one flesh’?  So they are no longer two, but one flesh.  Therefore, what God has joined together, no human being must separate.”

Loving Father, I want to love you more and better through my love for my husband.  Let me see opportunities to become one with you by serving him.

~Genesis 2:23-24

The man said:  “This one, at last, is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; This one shall be called ‘woman,’ for out of ‘her man’ this one has been taken.”  That is why a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife, and the two of the become one body.

In those time when I feel distant from my partner, help me to cling to him.  May our love be united even when we feel the challenges of the world pulling us apart physically and emotionally.
