Crown or Cancer Podcast

A worthy wife is a crown for her husband,
    but a disgraceful woman is like cancer in his bones. – Proverbs 12:4

Am I a crown or a cancer to my husband? Crown or cancer to those around me? Am I a healthy thing or an illness?

Show Honor

If I say he’s honored, does that mean I actually honor him? If I say he’s honored, but he doesn’t feel like it, is he being honored?

Tune in to hear what I think about these questions.

What Marriage Did

Can I start with saying that marriage is not a magic solution? What I’m saying in this post isn’t that marriage “fixed” me, but God used it to reveal things to me that I’d been blind to about myself. This really is a true statement I heard from Rick Warren, “marriage doesn’t conceal problems,but reveals them.”

Marriage has pointed out two important s’s in my life: selfish and sensitive.

Marriage has taught me that I’m far more selfish than I realized. And really that I’m far more selfish than I’d ever admit. That’s the great thing about marriage, it reveals things in you that otherwise you’d just ignore.

I’ve noticed how sensitive I am. I’m easily offended by Brandon and I’ve really become a big softie since being married. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it definitely has made me turn more emotional molehills into mountains.

Could someone point these things out to me? Maybe? But reflecting on how I respond or react towards Brandon is what really made it obvious.

Have I tried to change? Yes. Will I be perfect? Nope. How is this encouraging? Easy. I know things I need to change about myself to become a better person.

For many many reasons and in many many ways, marriage has made me a better person. It is the second best decision I’ve ever made and will ever make. It’s because of this decision that I’ve been influenced and am able to grow into a better person. If I don’t know I need to change, I won’t. Thanks to marriage I know what I need to change and through the power of the Holy Spirit I can.

My marriage reminds me of how God uses it to bring us closer to Him. It reminds me of His love for us. And it reminds me that He is patient to see us change. Think about it, I got married when I was 27? For 27 years I’d been living with this root of selfishness that God revealed in a deeper level through my marriage.

My marriage reminds me more than anything of the gratitude that I have for God loving me unconditionally and patiently.

Proverbs 7 – Standards

He followed her at once, like an ox going to the slaughter. He was like a stag caught in a trap, awaiting the arrow that would pierce its heart. He was like a bird flying into a snare, little knowing it would cost him his life. So listen to me, my sons, and pay attention to my words. Don’t let your hearts stray away toward her. Don’t wander down her wayward path. For she has been the ruin of many; many men have been her victims.
Proverbs 7:22‭-‬26 NLT

The Bible really doesn’t mix words about sexual sin. It’s quite clear where it stands about sex outside of marriage along with other hot topics we have up for debate.

We as a society have allowed the double standards we live by. Women just as much as men go right along with these double standards in life. I’ve heard women call other women choice words for sleeping with multiple men probably more than I’ve heard other men refer to them… but this post isn’t about double standards per se.

The chapter before this, Proverbs 6, says that sleeping with another man’s wife is foolish and will cost you your life, in fact that you will destroy yourself. And of course starting this post off you read an excerpt from chapter 7.

It’s a story of a young man who was foolish enough to entertain the adulterous wife who called out. Rather than ignore her, he engaged, and like a curious animal, is now trapped. He is yet another victim of hers.

So the question is, if the Bible so clearly states that sex outside of marriage is wrong, why does our society support it? There are many things our society is in support of that’s wrong, but we’re to a place now where people are almost expected to sleep together while they’re dating. How did we get here?

Movies and books have some blame for sure. But ultimately, isn’t it just our wrong desires that we’ve given in to? Didn’t we like the young man become foolish? We watched something that one time or read it and it stayed. We should’ve ignored but didn’t. And now, here we are.

The hope I have is that we’ll recognize our wrong before it’s too late. The hope I have is that even in a society that condones such sin, Christ followers will be the ones to pray for the conviction of Holy Spirit. The hope I have is that God will do a mighty change in our hearts to recognize His definition of right and wrong and choose right. This was never about double standards, but about God’s standards. Either we choose to live by them or don’t, my hope is the former.

Seven Years

Seven years goes by fast. So much change happens in that time. Changes that are good and changes that are hard.

Seven years ago Brandon and I made a decision that would lead to one of the best decisions of our lives. Agreeably, accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior is best decision number one. After that, marrying each other.

Isn’t that crazy how important marriage is? It’s not a close second to number one by any means, but it’s the most important decision after eternal life.

We decided to go on our first date seven years ago on Memorial Day. That date led to more, which led to today. Five years of marriage complete, and whole lot of love and patience along the way.

It is with joy that I greet this day, knowing what this day will always mean to me.

What I love about being married.

I love marriage because I can be authentic. We live in a world where there’s so much pretending. We pretend to be happy or sad or OK. And a lot of time, we’re not.

I love that in marriage I can’t pretend. I can’t pretend to be something I’m not, and I don’t have to. I don’t pretend to feel something I don’t, and I don’t have to. I just get to be me. Flawed and fabulous (admittedly so).

This isn’t to say that our relationships in general with others aren’t authentic. But there is no authentic relationship like marriage. When I tell you Brandon gets the raw, real deal me, he gets it ALL. And the jawdropping thing is that he still loves me.

If through marriage I am in awe of Brandon’s love for me, imagine how much God has to love me. He knows every wrong thought or desire, in addition to every wrong I’ve done. Yet, He loves me unconditionally.

What I love about marriage, isn’t just the authentic relationship Brandon and I have. What I love about our Godly marriage, is that it reminds me of how much God loves me.

Thank You Lord.

How Could You?

Proverbs 19:3 People ruin their lives by their own foolishness and then are angry at the LORD.

This verse made me think of the phrase “how could you.” More than we realize, people tend to look back on their lives and mistakes and ask God how could He?

How could He let this happen? First off, know that I’m not talking about rape or abuse or cancer. There are many things that go into that bracket that I don’t understand and only God knows how He will truly use it all for His glory in the end.

But this verse is talking about the mistakes that are in our control or the things that happen that we could’ve helped.

Sex is beautiful. A man and woman of God coming together in holy matrimony and having a child is beautiful. But if you are sleeping with someone who isn’t your husband or wife then don’t blame God when the situation goes south.

Don’t blame God for the bad things in this fallen world. And don’t look at your life falling apart and blame it on God’s non-existence. It’s times to realize that it’s just you. Your choices, your mistakes, and its your time to repent.

Disobedience isn’t a God issue, it’s your issue.
