Has The Third Strand Been Pulled Out? Part 1

By: Jenifer Metzger

Has your marriage been hard lately? Does if feel like you and your husband are being attacked on every end? Do you wonder if you are going to make it?

When we enter into marriage, there are three parts: you, your husband, and God. As you marry, these three parts become closely braided together. But when marriage gets hard, we have to ask ourselves one very important question; has the third strand been pulled out?

Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him.
And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
Ecclesiastes 4:12

When we are knit together, all three parts, we are strong, not easily broken. But when that third strand is pulled out, we are weak, open for attack.

A few years back my husband came a little too close to major injury, even death, all because of a weakened rope. He works construction on tall buildings. He takes every precaution he can. But one day his rope became weak, a strand in his rope broke. Had he not caught it, he could have fallen to his death minutes later.

Friends, that third strand, God, is vital, life saving, to your marriage. If your marriage is missing the third strand, it is time to rebraid adding God in.

*Next week we will talk about how to put God back into your braid.
