“A Marriage Resurrected”
Just a few days ago we celebrated a very special day, Resurrection Sunday better known as Easter. This holiday is all about commemorating the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Death could not hold Him down! Jesus Christ is Risen and He lives! Because He lives, many have been changed and will never be the same. He specializes in taking dead situations, people, things, relationships and brining them to life. I have seen Him do it! This week, I want to share a very special testimony about a marriage that has been resurrected.
The marriage is near and dear to me, because the husband and wife are my grandparents. Mr. Edward and Mrs. Delores Lucas were married many years ago. Their marriage lasted for about 10 years and then they divorced in 1958. They were divorced for 35 years and one day my daughter invited her great grandparents (my grandparents) to come to church to see her dance. After the service, my grandmother and grandfather started talking to one another. The talks lead to seeing each other and the next thing we knew, God did it! He reconnected my grandparents. After being divorced for 35 YEARS, God put them back together again. “Won’t He do it!” My grandmother said; “Since this is a marriage resurrected, we should get re-married on Resurrection Sunday.” Its been over 10 years now, and they just celebrated another year. To God be the glory!
Today, my grandfather is 88 years old and my grandmother is 83. My grandfather is still moving well however, my grandmother is no longer walking and is in a Senior Care facility. I believe God knew that they would be great company for each other so, He put them back together for such a time as this.
I share this testimony because every time I see my grandparents together, I am reminded that with God, all things are possible (Matthew 19:26) . Somebody needs to be reminded that there is nothing too hard for God. You may be dealing with a dead situation, dead person or a dead relationship, but God can bring it back to life with His Resurrection Power. Don’t give up! Know that God is able! He can do exceedingly, abundantly above all that you could ask or think. . . (Ephesians 3:20)
God is still in the RESURRECTION business!!!
Until next week . . .
