A couple of weeks ago I heard I’m Gonna Love You Through It by Martina McBride for the first time, and I fell in love with it.
Besides its melodic appeal, this song cuts right to the core of what marriage is all about. In a world where people are jumping ship at the slightest discomfort or inconvenience, its message is a wake-up call. What makes marriage so spectacular and special is that it should be the one relationship in this world where there’s no chance of abandonment or walking away. It’s meant for life, and that’s what’s so incredible about it. That’s what creates the freedom and blessing of true, deep, and unparalleled intimacy and love in a way we don’t experience otherwise.
As I listened to this song, I knew that I wanted to feature it in this month’s Noteworthy feature because it’s poignant and a message that we all need to hear. It tells a story that will move you to tears and stir emotions in you that you weren’t expecting. Beyond just the power and significance this song has for marriages, I believe it will touch many of you on numerous levels. This story is one that has impacted us all in one way or another. There’s no way that you can listen to this song and not be moved and motivated.
I don’t want to give away what the song is about because I want you to experience the raw emotion that I felt when I first heard it. What I will tell you though is that it’s about sticking by your spouse through thick and thin, good and bad, sickness and health, ups and downs … through it all. It’s a love story that truly will melt your heart and remind you of the unique blessing and opportunity you have to love your spouse unconditionally no matter what, come what may, and through it all.
Take a listen for yourself …
