How to Create a Marriage Where Love Endures All Things

113 Shares

Did you go into marriage expecting a fairytale ending?  I did.  Disney really sold me on the whole idea of a brave knight on a white stead who would ride in, gallantly sweep me off my feet, carry me into the sunset… and we would live happily ever after.   Disney lied – or at least omitted all the daily things – all the things a wife endures in Marriage (yes, even a Christian Marriage).

Psssst: This is the last in our study through 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.  

To go back, click on any of the words in this list ; so far we’ve seen PatienceKindnessJealousy, Bragging, Arrogance, Disrespect or Acting unbecoming in Marriage, Selfishness in Marriage, Anger in Marriage, Evil Thoughts in Marriage, Rejoicing In Marriage and Bearing All Things, Believing All Things, Hoping All things and Enduring All things in a Biblical Marriage.

Each word builds upon the last creating a Marriage that is Rock Solid

But can a Christian Marriage really Endure All things?

To answer that question we need to understand what that word means in the original language.

Love endures all things means that Love remains in a place instead of leaving when it gets hard.

Life gets hard… doesn’t it ladies?!?!   I know I am not the only one dealing with hard things.  When his sin is living in the same house as my sin… life can get messy.  Shoot – even when we are both doing things in a godly way – thing still seem to get hard.


Do you need some encouragement to keep pressing into that Daily Commitment?   We could all use a community to help us in Reclaiming Hope & Joy in our marriages!

Why should we stay in this Marriage – when it gets hard?

It is tempting to leave, quite, try again with someone else – when life gets hard.  When we’ve tried everything and nothing helps.  How do we Stick it out?  Should we stick it out?

I want to start with the bigger picture and then narrow our focus.

My Christian Marriage is supposed to demonstrate God’s love, God’s way.

God’s love is amazing, unconditional and this lost world Needs it!  They need to know that:

A. God never leaves us or forsakes us (Deut 31:6; Heb 13:5).

B. God is longsuffering with us, slow to anger, and full of grace and mercy toward us (Psalm 145:8).

I don’t know what your life has looked like, but mine has been a mess of disastrous mistakes and deliberate rebellion.  I praise God He is an again kind of God who never gives up on me.

But it feels impossible to love like God loves.

Can we create a Marriage Where Love Endures All Things?

It wouldn’t be in God’s word if it were impossible… but it requires hard work on our part, it requires us to be intentional and in the Word of God.

Are you up for that?

Here are the First 3 things you can do today that will help create a Marriage that endures:

  1. We have to set aside the Cultures way of doing Marriage.
    • They just have it wrong about too many things – and it is proven by the divorce rate!
  2. It will require us to relearn what Love is (We’ve been doing that in this series)
  3. Forgiveness has to become a way of life for us

I remember when this was taught to me…

‘I will never be able to do all of those things consistently’, I thought.

Honestly, what seemed impossible then is such a joy now.  And it is a blessing to walk beside countless women who have chosen to be biblical wives with a love that endures!

God inspired me to write out so much of what He taught me.  It is in this Bible Study… and

  1. Amen, Sister! Such an encouraging word! And I can testify that marriage really can endure all things. God is good and gracious, even when it’s unbearable and you want to run and never look back. He loves us too much to let us!

  2. Tiffany! Thank you for putting this on “paper.” Love is such a skewed concept these days. You’re right! Forgiveness is more than the key to a happy marriage. It’s the key to a happy heart!

I'd love to chat with you about today's topic!
