"It Takes Three"

Samuel Smith


(God-the root, Husband-the stem, & Wife-the leaf)

Beauty and gentleness can attract a lover. Brains and money can make a lover stay with you. But only God can make a marriage last forever. It takes more than a beautiful face to keep a man and more than money to keep a woman. Beauty fades, clothes wear out, money vanishes, brains contract amnesia, everything else passes away, but God's love remains forever.

Just a dose of God’s love dispensed from the treasury store of God can unite "fighting couples" together. While Adam and Eve were engaged in a blame game, God was engaged with a plan to bring them back together with His divine love. As it takes the root, the stem, and the leaves to give rise to a fruit, so does it take God, the husband, and the wife to give rise to a happy relationship.

"Some of the best marriages are those that have come out from the verge of divorce and from deep struggles and hurts. No marriage problem is too deep, too complicated, or too difficult for God to solve. Even the most hot-headed and hard-hearted spouse will succumb to the saving power of God. God specializes in transforming hearts and renewing marriages. Gather the broken pieces of your marriage or relationship and bring them to God in prayer. He will mend your broken heart and heal your marriage. Yes, 'with man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible'" (Isaac Kubvoruno). Allow God into your marriage and see the smiles return once again on your faces. God loves you! (Ephesians 5:22-25; cf. Matthew 19:26; Lamentations 3:22-23; 1 John 4:18).
