For years, my husband and I wanted to regularly read the Bible together.
But we had no idea where to start.
The biggest issue was time.
We’d maybe read the Bible together and there, but if we got off our planned routine, then suddenly all that guilt set in.
After a while I think we just gave up trying, believing that a regular devotional time together was a “someday” item: you know, someday when the kids were gone and we “weren’t so busy.”
Is it possible for every couple to have this regular time of spiritual intimacy—even those wading through the exhilarating-but-exhausting parenting and career-building years?
I want to share how, yes, you can make couples devotions a regular part of your marriage.
There’s a few essential tips (plus some great marriage devotions!) that will make all the difference!
Our couple Bible time together became habitual (and powerful) when we finally said—with humble, teachable hearts—“Jesus, we know you want us to be spending time with you together on a daily basis. Show us how to do this within our crazy life.”
This meant that we didn’t commit ourselves to following a strict regimen.
Or to never missing a day. Or to doing it only at a specific time of day.
We’ve kept it open and yet still kept it a priority, continually asking God for wisdom on how to make each day work.
Instead of locking ourselves into a schedule–and tacking on all that guilt when the schedule would fail–we simply kept it a priority and sought creative ways to make it happen within that season.
