Living out “One Love”
The older I get, the more I realize how short life is and how precious the moments are. I desire a marriage so deep, intimate and passionate that our ‘one love’ is beyond our wildest dreams. I mean, why not? Why can’t I have that in my marriage? I know that God wants my marriage and all of yours to be one of the best gifts in this life that He has given us. Talking, sharing, listening, planning, praying and so on with my husband takes energy, effort and time. However, in doing so we have reaped the benefits of a protected, refreshed and thriving marriage. With four young children, work, ministry, school work, home responsibilities and everything else I juggle, it is easy to neglect and put off the effort of being one with my husband. I have been on that side and have experienced a cold and empty marriage. Now that I have tasted and walked in ‘one love’, I never want to return to the rut and disconnect that the enemy wants our marriage to be.
Connecting physically, emotionally and spiritually will bring benefits beyond words and I promise you your marriage will grow deeper and fuller for it. So as women that love our husbands and treasure our marriages, I want to ask you, “Are you living ‘one love’ day in and day out?
What can you do to embody the idea of one love in your marriage, with your friends and with those in your world?
