PEOPLE Magazine recently did an interview with Bon Jovi and his wife about how God’s Faith has kept them together in such a hectic business, this is what they had to say:
Jon Bon Jovi is a rock superstar. He has been like that for over 25 years, but it is his wife that knows him the best. Most people don’t know that Jon Bon Jovi and Dorothea Hurley were highschool sweethearts and spent every waking second of their youth together. Whether Dorothea went, Jon followed – and vice versa! From shows in New York City, to nights studying for tests, the pair were attached at the hip!
“She’s the glue. I’m the crazy visionary with all kinds of things flying, and the seams are all splitting. She’s the one following me with the glue and the thread and needle, keeping it all together.” He then went on to say that their faith is one thing that kept together for so long.
Over the decades, Jon and Dorothea’s love only grew deeper. Even the hoards of obsessed female fans don’t phase Dorothea, as she explained to PEOPLE.
“I think it’s great they love the music. They love the band and are so loyal.”
Millions of women pining after Jon probably would’ve bothered any other woman, but Dorothea knows Jon is devoted to her!
It is this devotion that has kept them together, and their faith strong. Their life may be a little different from other people their age, but Jon told PEOPLE that he wouldn’t change things for the world!
“Somehow I became the poster boy for a long-married rock star. But I’ll accept the mantle because I’m so happy.”
In a World where divorce is high and considered common…is a World without God and His Love. You see, when 2 people are equally yoked in the Word & Faith of God; things change, the world around you changes and your eyes become open. You begin to see your wife or husband as a life long partner that’s with you in this journey called life. Some of you reading this might doubt this or are completely unknown to it but there is something you must finally realize and that is; God is Love.
It’s not magic, it’s not about saying positive phrases to yourself all the time….it’s about accepting and allowing the Holy Spirit to fill your heart and start listening. Remember, it’s Satan, who wants to destroy your relationships and cause friction and turmoil. It’s Satan who places temptations in front of you to destroy your marriage or relationship which is why we need the Holy Spirit in us to fight and defend ourselves & loved ones. This just doesn’t apply to intimate partners but also to family members that you may have trouble loving.
If you’re wanting to know if God is really real then give Him a chance, start a small conversation with Him, ask Him not to teach you Love but ask Him to Love through you. Ask Him to guide your life and keep asking Him. A journey with God is life long and sometimes things happen over night and sometimes it takes time to overcome a certain obstacle.
In a recent post we talked about Steve Jobs and how he didn’t realize God’s grace and love until he was near his death. We recommend you read that article because the worst thing that can happen is having regret in your heart when you know your death is coming.
Below is a prayer you can say privately or out loud…you must truly want this to happen, God knows where your heart is:
Dear Heavenly Father, I ask you to fill me with your Holy Spirit, I know I can’t take on the evil in this world alone, I ask to please change my heart, I ask that you love through me. Allow me to see the good within (my partner/friend, sister,name someone you have trouble with) and to not focus on the bad. I ask you to not just change my heart but to help change (his/hers) as well. Helps us to focus more on you Father and your ways. Fill me with your spirit Father.
