Remember the movie Urban Cowboy, and one of its hit songs “Lookin’ for Love” (Johnny Lee)? Bud and Sissy are “lookin’ for love in all the wrong places,” and get so hurt in the process.
But don’t we all. We get wound up in knots looking for a kind of love we believe must be there, but somehow can’t quite seem to find.
Two people getting married naturally believe things are going to be perfect from that day on. And then they too often become disillusioned when things get difficult.
The intimacy of marriage can be scary, and it can also be incredibly healing. That’s how marriage was intended to be: for two people broken in different ways, going through life with each other CAN bring healing to our brokenness. It’s one of God’s best methods of helping us become what He knows we can be.
