Don’t Kearse Your Marriage

If you watched the NFC Championship between the Packers and Seahawks, it was a great game! The Packers jumped out to an early lead through the third quarter; Seahawks came fighting back and the game eventually went to overtime. The Seahawks would go on to win the game and make it to Super Bowl 49 in Glendale, Arizona. Seahawks fans and commentators would talk about how they never gave up despite how bad it looked early in the game.

But I seen something deeper as I watched all four quarters. Wide receiver Jermaine Kearse and Quarterback Russell Wilson were both out of sync for all four quarters. Russell Wilson stats were 14/29, 209 yards and 4 interceptions, which they were all geared towards Kearse.
The interesting thing is Jermaine Kearse had 1 catch for 35 yards and that came as the game winning catch in overtime!

What does all this NFC Championship Football has to do with marriage? Everything, when it comes to not giving up on your marriage. Hoping that one day things will change for the better despite throwing 4 interceptions. What are those interceptions? It can be miscommunication, lack of finances, or stepping outside of the marriage. Can you imagine the way Russell Wilson and Jermaine Kearse felt during those four quarters while losing? The thought of giving up, not wanting to go out on the field and fight again because the game is over anyway right? What about the thought of throwing another interception once the football leave my hand? As a receiver, Jermaine Kearse could be thinking if the ball is thrown my way, would I catch it? The game is in overtime with the season hanging in the balance, the Seahawks have the football. What does Russell Wilson do to win the football game? He throws the ball to a catch less Jermaine Kearse!

Have you given up on your marriage? Don’t Kearse your marriage! Are you afraid to throw the ball to your spouse because you are afraid to throw another ‘interception?’ Try it one more time….your spouse might end up making the game winning catch!
