In this new marriage there was the baggage of more than 10 people including the new spouses of each divorced mate and not to mention all the family and friends of these involved. So the two naïvely stood before God and committed their lives once again to one another. Emily promised God that no matter what she would not divorce again.
It was like purchasing a new red two door sports coupe and loading it with the baggage that only a tractor trailer could manage. So they rode off down the road of life with the trunk filled and the luggage rack stacked high and what they thought wouldn’t fit they selfishly left on the side of road not thinking of the hurt and pain it caused.
Soon the car became cramped and they both just wanted some leg room; but there was none. They didn’t stop to think about the fact that on a long trip you need to stop for rest, so they passed every rest stop foolishly and continued only stopping for enough fuel to continue stylishly on the road trip. Soon the car could not sustain the burden of the weight the engine began to over heat and stalled out. They thought that it was fixable but some of the tools necessary they had left on the side of the road at the beginning of the trip.
Now Emily and her not so new husband stand on the side of the road feeling desperate. Not knowing what to do because they are many miles from a rest stop and feelings of bitterness have made them distant from one another.
Even God repented that he had made man. Now we are here on this earth with the beings that God was sorry he had made. When we look around and see all the disgusting things that a man (mankind) can do, it can bring a heart to tears. For some of us we don’t have to watch the television to see it. If you look around your own home, or if you look into the mirror you can see a picture of what can truly be awful. The bible says the heart of a man can be desperately wicked. Out of that heart can flow hatred, contempt, and even murders. Don’t be foolish enough to believe that because you love God you are free of all these perverse things; but rather know that you must daily submit your mind, and heart to God to be able to escape the desperate heart.
