Thursday has arrived, again! Weird how that keeps happening, huh?
As I’ve written before, I think having a quiet time is great for everyone. It brings us back to center, clears our head, reminds us what’s important and is a great refresher for the brain.
Today, as part of my Summer of Growth series, I want to share with you something Billy and I have been talking about doing.
I think this post is mostly speaking those of you who are spiritual and in a committed relationship of married.
I think its important for a couple to be on the same page spiritually. If not, I think it would be hard to connect on that next level that comes with serious relationships. If one of you is a follower of God and the other isn’t, one will always be bringing the other down. Whether it be mentally or physically.
I think it would be hard to walk with someone, in hopes of the same destination,when each of you are walking different paths. Eventually, something will cause distance between you. Does that make sense?
Billy and I are both Christians. We love going to church together. I love the closeness it brings and I love the strength our faith seems to bring to our relationship.
One thing I wish we could do is attend Sunday school or a couples’ Bible study together. Alas, our church is an hour away and making the drive more than once a week does no good for our gas budget.
We have come up with a solution, however. We’ve decided to start sharing a quiet time. Every night, Billy and I usually have a couple hours of alone time after Lilie goes to bed.
That gives us ample time to fit in a little Bible study/quiet time. Nothing huge; just 15-20 minutes of time spent together with the Lord, each night. We’re in the process of picking a study out to start.
I’m looking forward to starting this with him. I’m excited to see what it does for a faith and for our relationship.
I just feel so incredibly
lucky blessed to be with a man that actually wants to do this with me.
Do you think being on the same spiritual page can affect a relationship? I’d love to hear your opinion.
