Marriage is something that can be a challenge even in the best of marriages. Many times due to life changes our marriage has to take the back seat to every other obligation we have. The one pattern I have seen throughout the years in successful marriages is the ability to continue to love deeply every day completely throughout your life together with your spouse. One of the ways that I ensure that I do that is with marriage devotions of various different kinds. That’s why I was pleased when I was given the chance to review Awaken Love The Song Devotional from FlyBy Promotions in exchange for an honest blog review.
Awaken Love The Song Devotional Marriage Devotional
Awaken Love The Song Devotional is a six week marriage devotional that will help couples “awaken their love” for each other. This book focuses on the Song of Solomon book from the Bible. It puts into perspective many of the verses from that book of the Bible into how it relates to our marriages in our society today. They cover topics including desire, intimacy, fighting, romance, commitment, and faith. All of these things are about awaking the couples love for each other.
Love Deeply Every.Day.Completely.
To love deeply EVERY.DAY.COMPLETELY. requires digging in your heels and striving to show your spouse your unselfish love and desire to have them in your life. I’ve mentioned my love of the Love and Respect Dare Series to you many times. I have stressed that I fail at loving completely myself; so, I’m definitely no better than anyone else in this arena. However, I do make a conscious effort to love my husband with an unselfishness that I don’t normally possess.
Awaken Love The Song Devotional does a good job of making the reader remember what their relationship was like when it was brand new. It’s easy to love a spouse when things are new and fresh and when there isn’t outside issues to deal with.
The real challenge of loving someone comes into play when you have to shower them with love during the hard times of life. Some of the life challenges that can make a marriage crumble are unemployment, health issues with the couple themselves or immediate family or even close friends of the family, moving, and figuring out the best way to raise your kids together. This devotional reminds us that we were a couple long before all of these issues and the goal is to be one when these issues pass (and they always do in some form or another.)
It also reminds us of the importance of time being love and loving like there is no tomorrow. I am a huge fan of those principles and know the value of them. You could hand me a huge mansion, and if it was empty of love I’d be miserable. I think in our society today we spend far more time enjoying the finer gadgets and strive to earn the top dollar for fancier houses and cars that we don’t spend enough of our time loving those that we share our lives with.
Overall I do recommend the Awaken Love The Song Devotional. It’s not overly preachy at all, in fact other than mentioning the verses they are referring to, it is really like reading Kyle & Desirae Idleman’s true love story. We all know I’m a sucker for a true love story because I praise God every day that I’m living my own.
