Marriage is Tough

Fireproof is a really powerful movie on marriage. It hits at the heart of some very important themes that people really struggle with as they try to build a healthy marriage. I love Tim Keller's thought that marriages are "Gospel Reenactment". I also have been reading lately John Pipers book this Momentary Marriage.

Marriage for me is the closest thing I have to a visible representation of my relationship with Christ. I can see that relationship out loud through my dedication and devotion to Adriane. I praise God we have never fought like this, but I know it can come if we choose to stop turning towards each other and selfishly pursue our own needs and wants before we pursue others.
