4. God’s Word
Amid our relationship, we read His Word together; at times, we just read a single chapter together and we’ll talk about it.
It’s in these moments where we hear each other’s hearts spiritually, and it’s a beautiful thing.
There are nights we have just sung worship and prayed to God while we’re FaceTiming.
Granted, we still struggle with managing the little time we have together, with him currently living in Waco, and I in Dallas, but we’re open about our struggles, our feelings and where we are spiritually.
It’s during these moments that he gathers my hands into his, and he prays over us, then he’ll slip out his phone and start playing Christian music, and we close our eyes, sing together and refresh our souls.
Sometimes, keeping God first doesn’t always look so perfectly put together.
Sometimes, you end up missing Sunday service because you woke up late, or you forget to open His Word, or you decided to pray silently rather than out loud.
That’s okay; it’s the effort that counts. God desires that we dedicate time to Him, whatever that may look like for you both, so that you can walk into what He has planned for you as a couple.
