“This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife and the two are united into ONE.” Genesis 2:24
Being united and staying united as ONE in marriage does not happen passively. This world pulls us in a million directions, but God’s Word pulls you into a progressively closer relationship with Him, and into a progressively closer relationship with your husband.
Today in our study guides, we were asked to pray and illustrate the “road to ONENESS” with our husbands this year. Mine is below. It is something the Lord has been showing me as we have woken up in beautiful Jamaica the past few days, enjoying our coffee on this patio:
After launching this bible study, I’ve had to wrestle with my morning priorities. Down there in paradise it was no different. Actually, it was different because the internet was very, very, slow. I felt this pressure closing in to post everyday about the study and yet have time with Jesus first AND a special routine with my husband that creates ONENESS:
An undistracted cup of coffee with him in the morning.
So here is the road to ONENESS I illustrated in my study guide:
This is my road to oneness. Yours may look different, especially if you don’t drink coffee. But one thing will be the same:
A mindset and heartset of making your husband priority of all your relationships on this earth.
Our relationship with Jesus is in a league of its own. Way above all our earthly ones!!!
As we walk with Jesus, he will help us leave what needs to be left behind and will walk us down this road to greater oneness in our marriages.
I’d love to see these illustrations and Write It Outs! Praying for all of you as we walk down this beautiful road to greater Oneness!
