The Husband’s Baggage And The Wife’s Luggage

Andy and Sandy were so much in love in their courtship days. They were the quintessential campus love birds. Their love was palpable. Their eyes shone in ecstasy at the thoughts of each other. Barely can thirty minutes go without getting in touch for one thing or another. They looked forward to the wedding and they knew it was going to be so blissful.

The wedding happened and life began to happen. Differences emanated from nowhere and screamed at their love story. A love story filled with laughter and flowers, with dimples without pimples, soon became a love song punctuated with moods, cries, and tales of regrets.

What really happened?

They both brought their invisible baggages into the marriage. Baggages collide with luggages. These baggages were filled with junks and emotional dirts accumulated over the years growing up from abuses, negative words spoken, attacks and misconceptions that have been fed to them.

After the wedding, emotional baggages, sexual baggages, physical baggages and even spiritual baggages are brought to the table.

They now begin to deal with these, and sometimes for years, some of the contents of the baggages have not been revealed. Howbeit, the consequences of the baggages contents begin to take a toll on the couple, opened or closed.

Every anomaly and inconsistent behavior in marriage is drawing strength from that bag.

It is for this reason Jesus made one of the most powerful statements ever.

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Mat 11:28 (KJV)

Instead of carrying the bags around and messing up relationships, go to Jesus and let Him give you rest.

I love the Passion Translation:

“Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis.

Mat 11:28 (TPT)

Have a great day!

I lay down all baggages at the foot of the cross.

Ask the Saviour to help you.

Matt 11:28 (MSG) “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest.
