God is truly in the blessing business! Three years ago on July 5th my husband and I were married in a small outdoor ceremony. It seems like just yesterday we were exchanging our vows and meditating on 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. (NIV)
At times, I must admit that the hubs and I have done the latter. We've made grandiose family plans, complained about what each other could be doing better, and even lost sight of who IS the ultimate head of our household. I truly believe that prayer changes things and that one needs be careful what they wish for and even daydream about. Dreams can turn in to reality!
A few weeks ago we received a package in the mail from my prayer partner & BFF (every God-fearing woman & man needs one). It was a devotional, The One-Year Love Language Minute Devotional. The hubs and I had, had a convo a few days prior about finding a great devotional that we could use daily to help in our meditations and prayer time together. This was nothing BUT GOD! I hadn't spoken to her about our convo at all. BUT GOD! So, starting this month; going into out 3rd year of marriage we will be using the Love Languages daily devotional. Not only do I know this will help us keep our marriage God-centered but it will also force us to carve out 15 - 30 minutes a day for just the two of us, to pray & meditate together.
Have you ever used a devotional?
