“I’m just not in love with my spouse anymore”. Did you know love is not meant to be an emotion, but an action? Love is to seek the highest good for someone. The Bible commands us to love. Action.
If you are married and feeling like you just aren’t “in love” anymore then try thinking of “love” as an action. You can literally take matters into your hands and love your spouse.
It really isn’t about me feeling loved and that being an excuse to get out. Think about your vows. I’m guessing love was in there somewhere. Try it. Love (action) your spouse in a way you know speaks his/her love language. Mine loves acts of service. Maybe yours, loves to have words of affirmation, holding hands or a back rub, quality time or some prefer gifts. If you don’t know, ask or think about what makes them perk up and then do some loving on them.
Ephesians 5:25 “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;”
Our culture has our minds tuned to self, it is easy to see why we think it’s all about being “in love” when love is actually something we do.
Go love!!! I’d love to hear what happens when you put love into action.
If quality time is in your equation, grab your spouse tonight and curl up on the sofa together and watch The Princess Bride for fun. Laugh too!
