Wife's Shield Pendant comes with a card with the following blessing and symbolism:
I WANT TO TRULY ENJOY YOU, as God intended it, in our years “together,” defined as living “as one” at the deepest soul level. Let’s truly live – together. Let’s serve well and love well – together. Let’s seek to know, love and glorify God – together. Let’s relentlessly search for God’s plan for our lives and be obedient to his direction – together. Let’s have fun and laugh and cry – together. Let’s finish well no matter what God asks of us – together. And through heaven’s eyes let’s look back on our lives with no regrets – together.
Words of commitment to my wife
MY COVENANT WITH GOD. As I have matured in my understanding of living the life for which I was created, I give you this pendant as a symbol of the covenant I have made with God to make you my greatest priority in life outside of my relationship with Him.
I earnestly pray that in the years I have left here on earth that I will be mindful that my greatest mission is to be who God calls me to be as your husband. I commit that no other human relationship will ever come between us. I desire and pray to be God’s instrument to show you His protection, His tenderness, His strength, His provision, His pursuit, and His love.
Symbolism of Wife's Shield
The Battle – All forces of evil have been set against us to divide and conquer our marriage and to destroy our most important human relationship. The pendant is in the shape of a shield as a reminder to you of my commitment and prayer to stand in the gap and to be a spiritual covering and protection for your life.
Fighting for your Heart- The sword-shaped Celtic cross is a symbol of my willingness to lay down my life for you and to fight for your heart.
Band of Brothers – The 12 bright spots in the midst of the dark circle remind me that, just as Christ chose to surround himself with 12 other men, so too should I remember not to try to fight the battle alone. I commit to surround myself with other men who will hold me accountable to making you the greatest human priority of my life.
God’s View of Us - Yes we have failed each other, but the transparency of the cross is a reminder that God only sees our flesh through the lens and perspective of Christ’s finished work on the cross. We can now live in freedom together with no condemnation. I pray that I will see and love you with the lens of God – who created you as an image of His beauty.
