A unique vow, Explicitly intended to be binding Until death separates us. More than a contract that can be Broken by paying damages.
The words “For better, for worse; For richer, for poorer; In sickness and in health” Take into consideration The probability that It will not be easy to keep. Marriage is hard at best; Disagreements and Difficult adjustments abound. A binding oblation To love, honour, And cherish one another For as long as we shall live Because God has asked us to do so.
“For better, for worse,” we pledge, Through sickness and through conflict; We’ll keep these vows for life By the help and grace of God.
Be still, and know that I am God (Psalms 46:10a NJKV)
GOD answers GOD blesses GOD cares GOD defends GOD forgives GOD heals GOD helps GOD loves GOD provides GOD redeems GOD responds GOD saves GOD sees GOD speaks GOD supports GOD teaches and GOD watches over us.
Be still and honour GOD.
The Hebrew verb, “raphah” is translated to ‘be still’ or ‘stop striving’. This Hebrew word means to slacken off, to leave alone, to become weak and even to fail. We see that God is saying ‘relax, be weak, stop’ so that you can have some time out to recover, rest and repair.
