From Chaos to Calm: Day Fifteen

Your Beloved

Scripture Memory: “My beloved is mine, and I am his: he feedeth among the lilies.” Song of Songs 2:16

After a while married life can get in the way of your love life! I touched on this yesterday, but I want to reinforce the importance of romantic love between you and your husband.

If you have never really read the book, Song of Songs, in the Bible, you really should! God created romance and passion. Marriage is supposed to be physically and emotionally satisfying.

As a Godly woman and as a Godly wife, you should spend time each day focusing your thoughts and efforts on your husband. Get your heart ready to receive his love in the evenings or whenever you are together. Give your love to him. Show him your love – not just with your words, but with your actions.

You have heard the saying, “Actions speak louder than words.” This is certainly true when it comes to your husband. If you tell him you love him but then never accept his advances or initiate intimacy, he will feel neglected and even unloved.

Focus your heart toward him. Think of those special moments you and your hubby have shared together in the past. Just by thinking about your love and reasons why you love him will help you feel more like connecting with him on a physical basis when he is home.

A fun way to build intimacy together would be to read one chapter of the Song of Songs each night before going to bed. Talk about what you like about each other, how you like to be touched, what things you would like to do together, your dreams and common goals. Look forward to your future together. Set up a promise of love and commitment each night and pray together.

If you feel uncomfortable praying out loud with your husband (very common) practice praying out loud when you have your morning devotions. Learn to open up and be vulnerable with your husband. There is nothing more intimate than praying together!

By praying together you will be less likely to experience the sorrow of divorce, adultery, or other trauma in your marriage. Set the tone for your relationship. Problems don’t always go away immediately, but by changing your own attitude toward your husband, you will see a difference.

  3. Hi Melissa, Thanks for the series. I was expecting to be challenged on a few topics, but you have surprised me in so many areas. I think I will need to go back to the beginning and spend a bit more time on some (many, all??) of the days. My husband might not recognise me by the end of this. :-)
  4. I was able to be outside early and enjoy the devotional earlier than usual. I was trying to think about this when a news site that I read popped up on the phone here. It was about church news. OH MY HOW SHAMEFUL. We as ladies we really NEED TO BE AT LEAST TRYING TO DO THIS WITH OUR BELOVED. Little foxes can get in. THANK YOU MELISSA HOW MUCH YOU ARE DOING. We read together and hold hands and pray. Im going to check for other things to date my husband
  5. Melissa, Thank you so much for this series. It is really helping me connect with the Lord and changing my attitudes towards my husband, chores and our life. Thank you!
