Jesus, be the center

The worship team at my church will play this song every once in a while and every time I hear it, I can't help but tear up. I have never heard truer words, "from my heart to the heavens, Jesus, be the center. It's all about You! Yes, it's all about You!"

Israel Houghton is the original artist to sing this song, but I found a clip of one of my church's worship leader's singing it. "Jesus At the Center of it All" I encourage you to click on the link and give it a listen.

As I prepare to enter marriage in just a few short months, I've really been thinking about what I want my marriage to mean. What do I want people to see when they look at Browning and I growing and living life together? I want them to think of the words, "Jesus, at the center." I know my marriage won't be perfect. I know at times it will be hard, but no matter what we go through, Jesus, be the center.

Nothing I do in this life is worth anything without Jesus. I could get by with being an "okay" wife without Him, but it's His love that gives me the ability to love my husband the way he needs to be loved. It gives me a purpose to fight for my marriage, making it the most important thing in my life. It gives me the hope that we will not become the dreaded "one out of every two marriages fail" statistic.  People can look at me like I'm crazy, but it truly is all about Him. The more I grow closer to Him, the more I realize this life is nothing without Him.

From my heart to the heavens, Jesus, be the center.
