Growth- something that has grown, or is growing.
Together- companionship or close proximity.
Before two people come together to form a union with the intent of growing together for the duration of their lives here on earth, there should be a conversation concerning the disparities that may exist or that can develop from one being independent, to one sharing that independence with someone other than oneself. My wife likes to fly and explore the world and I do not, for my fear of flying has grounded me. Myself, I enjoy the comfort, the warmth, and the security that our home provides, and the chances of me falling 10,000ft from my bed is slim to none. With that said, there are times when we are not as one, for my fear of flying keeps us apart and at a lonely disadvantage as it pertains to traveling and exploring this world together. Fear, an unsure emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. With the Lord now in my life I truly no longer fear the thought of taking flight, for I have asked the Lord to take that fear. As of today my bags are packed, I will no longer need the company that fear provides while my wife and I are apart, as she will now be the company that I keep when we are away. I thank you Lord for answering my cries, for the time has come for us to take flight.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world does. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not be afraid.”
“I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from my fears.”
