Love Your Spouse More Deeply in 25 Days - Day 6
Song of Solomon 2:16: I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine.
How many times have you arrived at the end of the week, looked at your spouse, and said, “Man, it feels like I haven’t seen you all week”? Or have you ever found yourself in an argument because one or the other of you hasn’t had time to spend with the other?
Most of us have been in this place more than once. Scheduling time in your day to be available for yourself much less anyone else can prove to be difficult. We seem to live in a fast-paced, over-scheduled world most days. Our meetings run longer than expected, we don’t have enough time to finish everything on our ever-growing list and soon we have written our spouse right off the list.
If you see this happening in your relationship, take a moment and ask yourself "What can I pair back on?" or "What are my priorities for the day?" or perhaps visit with your spouse about how you are feeling and ask them to help you determine a time this week when you can both be available to one another.
In case you need help with the words, “Hey Babe! I believe I may not have been available to you recently and I would like to change that. Could we set aside a couple of hours one evening this week to talk?”
Or better yet, ask God to show you how to best go about making yourself available to your spouse. Maybe, you won’t have to say anything. Maybe the space in your day will just open up naturally.
Y’all have a beautiful day!
All My Love,
