  1. Marriage Verse

    Tuesday, 14 September 2010

    You know how you can go through the Bible and take the day and month of your birthday and find "your" verse?

    I decided to try it for our wedding anniversary... 7/6 (that's June 7th for you northern hemespherians. We do it day-month, not month-day down here)

    I wanted a nice one obviously, so I discarded the ones that spoke about descendents being slaves and mistreated (Acts), four headed winged beasts (Daniel), honouring lips but distant hearts (Mark [though convicting]), deceit by friends (Obadiah) and shocking family relations (Micah). And forget a bout Job. Miserable man.

    I kid, I kid.

    There were a couple which made me stop and think... are they apt for us?

    Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet (Matthew)

    And when you were eating and drinking, were you not just feasting for yourselves? (Zechariah)

    There was a cute one...

    How beautiful you are and how pleasing o love, with your delights (Song of Songs)

    In the end, I setled on two that I wanted to speak out over my marriage.

    Firstly, from Deuteronomy;

    For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be His people, His treasured possession

    And secondly, from Luke, and probably my favourite for it's simplicity...

    So Jesus went with them.


    May you always, Lord.

    What would your marriage verse be?
    Or your salvation date (marriage to God, perhaps?)
    if you don't have an earthly husband?

    1. Oh! I love that last verse. How wonderful to know that no matter where we go or what we are going through we can have confidence that Jesus goes with us! Now I want to go look up mine. :)

      I was curious as to what Song Of Solomon would have for us but the 5th chapter doesn't have 26 verses.

      But for my birthday July 3rd) it's...well just go look it up. ;-)

      Interesting idea. I've never heard of this system for finding a verse.

      Our anniversary is 7/12
      Song of Soloman:
      Let us go early to the vineyards to see if the vines have budded, if their blossoms have opened, and if the pomegranates are in bloom-there I will give you my love.

      1 Corinthians:
      To the rest I say this (I, not the Lord): If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her. <--thankfully this one does not apply to us!!

      In Proverbs I end up right in the middle of the warning about the adulteress. I think that this system doesn't work well for me! LOL

    Thanks for chiming in :)

    I really promote conversation here, and I only ask that you be considerate of others feelings, and remember that tone doesn't always translate well over type. An emoticon can work wonders! ;)
