I love the title of this post because while I intended it for one purpose, as soon as I typed it, I realized that it holds a double-fold purpose, both of which I need to hear. I meant for this post to be about showing our husbands love, but we cannot possibly love our husbands fully without first loving God fully. This means for me that I am going to have to wake up earlier than necessary each morning to make time with my Heavenly Father before I spend the day with the earthly man of my dreams. And, because I have just made this public, I now have hundreds of accountability partners to ask me tomorrow if I really got up with the alarm clock.
I used to be an early riser, but I struggle with that these days. After we had our second child, I became a night owl wanting to stay up late with Nathan to be able to talk, watch TV, finish unfinished work and just have downtime together, but I require sleep, and because of that, I despise getting up earlier than necessary these days! It frustrates me to no end!
So, on that note, I’m going to have to finish this post tomorrow because my first big step in loving my husband fully, is to love my God fully which means I need to make an extra effort for downtime with my Father first thing in the morning, and the next morning, and the next morning, and the next and the next and so on and on.
