I am going to do something a little different in the month of April. I will do a few of my normal post, but for the majority of April I will be focusing on a devotional I was recommended from one of my favorite bloggers (Kaitlyn @ Wifessionals). I hope you will not be scared away with the fact that I will not primarily focusing on fashion, but I feel with the baby coming very soon this was a great time to reflect on my faith and relationship with my husband.
I hope you enjoy and will learn something about yourself through this next months post. Today is the first day of going through my devotional and I am not going to lie I wasn't sure what to expect. I feel like I have a great marriage and garrett and I have a great relationship with each other. But I know things are going to change once Tatum is in the picture, I think this devotional is a great way to reflect on everything before she is born.
Wife after God is designed to walk you through a journey with god, that is tailored through the role of being a wife. I am going to go day by day and reflect on my relationship with god and my husband. I will not be summarizing days or writing the versus that correlate. But I will be journaling and using the refection questions to help me go through this next month.
So here we go.
Day 1: God's Purpose for Your Marriage
Why is it important to know god's purpose for your marriage?
I think it is important to know gods purpose for any marriage, because this lets you live life to the fullest. You will know that you were made to not only represent yourself but to represent him. Through my actions and my life I am doing this on a daily bases. Do I like the way I represent god? Also this reminds me I needs to imitate Jesus selfless love towards my husband and he can do the same towards me.
How does this knowledge change the way you look at your life/marriage?
I think this makes me look at my husband and my life as not two separate entities but one.
What is one thing you will do differently in your marriage knowing that you are reflecting god's love story?
At this time I don't think I want to do things differently but I want to continue to grow with my husband. As we start a family I want to make sure to take time to be with one another, and continue to show love towards each other as we start this next chapter of your lives.
Day 2: Marriage By Design
In what ways does your husband show you love?
My husband shows me unconditional love in many ways. They might be small or big but it doesn't matter which way it is, as long as he continues reaffirm his love for me.
What is one thing that makes it hard for you to respect your husband?
I think for me the challenge of respect lies with in my own insecurities. Sometimes if I could be more open I think we could both respect each other more.
What are some ways you can show your husband respect?
I hope that I show my husband respect in many different ways, I do this through my words and actions.
