Mind, Body, Spirit


Kristine Cucinotta Murphy

Love must rule in Spirit, mind and body
That’s what makes a covenant marriage holy

It’s willfull work to serve your spouse
To serve the Lord, me and my house

There’s no formula, scheduling or routine
Love must rise above all to cover over everything

It is work by the sweat of his brow
It is putting his hands to the plow

Sometimes it feels wonderful and good
Sometimes you have to humble because you’re just not in the mood

Building her mind with words of affirmation
Giving her body complete affection
Allowing the Spirit of God to keep her covered in Salvation

Her head, her covering, her shepherd
Never bitter towards her, so the love due to her is never hindered

Sanctify her with God’s peace
To keep her blameless

Teach her well by walking the walk
Season her well by your gentle tender kindessness talk

Yeah, she may not deserve it, but neither did you
That’s God’s grace that he has called you to do

To show the world his covenant with you
With the one you vowed to love and said I DO

1 Thessalonians 5:23
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Matthew 22:37
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
