2016 is already bringing in so many changes for my husband and I. I am in my last semester of graduate school and therefore my hours are extremely tied up with schoolwork and my placement requirements at the hospital. I love the work I am doing, but coming home late and having little time to spend with my husband is an area that I wish could change.
My husband has always been so supportive of my dreams to become a social worker, and I am 3 months away from completing that dream, but the time in between is busy, stressful, and expensive!
I attempt to cherish anytime I have to just relax with him and talk about other things beside school and work. I need this time to de-stress and I am so thankful for every chance I have to do so. For Christmas, we were given a Couples Devotional Bible from my grandparents, and it has made our quality de-stress time even more valuable. The opportunity for my husband and I to share our ideas and read the Bible together is something that allows us to grow together and with God.
“And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:9-11)
I give my husband a lot of credit for working around my busy schedule and supporting me. I am so thankful that we have these times together so I can continue to show love to my husband and allow for God to strengthen our marriage.
I encourage everyone who has a spouse or a serious relationship to look into doing devotionals together, this can be a great opportunity for growth in God and help give you a better understanding of your significant other.
