Effortless would be the word I’d use to describe my dating, engaged, and newly married experience.
Walking through life with an emotional high.
Things were simple.
Grace came easily.
Kindness was a natural by-product of being in love.
Spending countless hours getting to know his heart wasn’t a sacrifice of my time, in fact, there wasn’t anywhere else I’d rather be than by his side.
How I longed to see him. Hear about his day. Look into his eyes. Hold his hands.
It was all effortless and the word, ‘intentionality’ seemed like an absurd concept to this gal who was in love.
Every new relationship and marriage runs on emotions, but at some point, the emotional gas tank starts to become depleted because the man is no longer new and neither is the concept of married life. This is a natural course for all couples.
He gives us instructions in His Word to help us go from the initial emotional-guided marriage, to a Spirit-guided one.
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Galatians 5:25
A Spirit-guided marriage has the Holy Spirit guiding our actions and attitudes, drawing us closer to emulating Jesus Christ. It is through this process of laying down our ways, for the Lord’s ways, that our marriages become Spirit-guided. And when a marriage is Spirit-guided, it just so happens to be a marriage this is not of this world; a marriage that is fulfilling, thriving, and passionate!
