A few nights ago, we had our couple’s bible study. Since it was so few of us we decided to talk about: When and what makes us fell closest to our mate.
After each person shared some good tips from:
When my husband helps around the house.
When my wife sits and tells me about her day.
When I can vent and not be judged.
All these tips were good; but the next morning in my quiet time, God showed me: we “feel” most content in our intimate relationships, when we don’t look at the other person to make us happy or to make us “feel “ a certain way. When we live our life “Unto Him”- and show love to our spouse or others without expectation, when we go the extra mile without expectation; just unto him… that’s when we feel the closest to Him and ultimately closer and more full-filled in our relationships with others.
When we love God first and others second and become selfless, life continually gets better.
Matt 6:33 -But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Father, help me to put you first and live more self-less. I can’t do this in my flesh but with the love and help of your Spirit, I can be a vessel for you to move through.
