It’s been awhile since we had a Sunday reflection – life has just been crazy!
Mr. FFF has been traveling all over the country for interviews, I just found out we are going to Costa Rica on Wednesday and then it’s the Holiday season – which means things are BUSY!
But, Sunday reflections are not to talk about the business that goes on behind the computer, they are about talking about how God has been working in my life – and I always LOVE it when you leave comments about how He is working in yours!
Last reflection we talked about “SOAPS” and I explained how I had starting reading the Bible that way for my devotions, and how I had really been enjoying it.
Well, Mr. FFF has been taking notice and he asked me if he could start doing them with me!
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like he never did devotionals. We just always did them separately.
You guys. Spending time in the word (before we zone out in front of a mindless Netflix binge for the evening) has been SO amazing.
Mr. FFF has been more honest with me about things going on inside his head than ever in our almost 4 years of marriage, which has grown us closer even just over a few weeks.
It has also kept me more accountable to actually live out what I read and apply to my life from each day. We read the scriptures together, write down our SOAPS, and then we have to read them aloud to each other and discuss them.
This means that Caleb knows that things that I am wanting to apply to my life from what I read, which means he is able to call me out when he sees that I am NOT DOING that.
It was also really funny because the FIRST day that we started doing SOAPS together, the reading JUST so happened to be Corinthians 7, which is THE scripture for marriage.
Funny how God works like that right?
That’s really all I have for you today. I know it’s not really a “reflection,” but doing these together really has shown me the importance of building a spiritual life with your significant other, and not just focusing on your OWN relationship with God.
Both relationships are just as important. And having God truly as the center of my marriage, even in just a few weeks, has already changed it.
So, if you aren’t spending time in the Word as a couple, I highly encourage you to start doing so!
See you next time!
