Christian Poems on Marriage
By Dave Pipitone
Using Christian poems on marriage help build faith, love and hope. Christian thoughts for marriage are a gift to give every day. Every husband and wife, no matter how long they have been married, need to stay connected with God and each other. Why is that so?
Have you ever broken a piece of thread? It’s easy to do, isn’t it? A thread has very thin strands of fiber that are fragile and easy to break.
Now, take a bunch of thicker, stronger threads, weave them into cords and make a rope out of them. That is much, much harder to break. The same thing is true of a Christian marriage.
If you are “hanging on by a thread,” your relationship will be easy to break. When challenges come, as they do in every marriage, your relationship may pull apart. However, if you build a marriage woven around God, you will have a strong, unbreakable bond.
Let me explain. When we were baptized, we became connected to God and everyone in God's family in a spiritual way. Like a physical umbilical cord, our connection to God has three strands of life – the virtues of love, faith and hope – the life line of our relationship. When these three virtues are braided together through daily married life, your connection to God and each other is strong and hard to break.
The three strands of love, faith and hope are a “strong as rope” lifeline that helps you grow closer to God and to each other during your engagement and after you are married. Instead of making differences that every couple has into a tug of war, you can pull together so that the rope is working with you not against you. And how you remember is easy with the Christian poem on marriage on the My 3 Strands for Marriage dedication card.
The first line is "A man and woman with God's hands knit a marriage of three strands." God, the husband and wife are the three people actively involved in every marriage.
The second line is "Three cords of love, faith and hope weave a stronger bond than rope." As mentioned above, a strong Christian marriage is based on staying connected to each other with the three strands of love, faith and hope.
The third line is "One greater love, a braid of three, formed by God, my spouse and me." Love becomes more pure, more kind, more patient, more gentle, more forgiving - a greater love, when God is the third strand between husband and wife.
The last line of this Christian poem on marriage is: "May my 3 Strands be lifelong friends, with happiness that never ends." What a magnificent reality to believe and hold dear - that God, husband and wife are lifelong friends that have a happiness that lasts forever. Faith, hope and love are the greatest verses in Christian poems on marriage.
