As a person that is very religious and that believes your relationship was sealed in the presence of Christ you will easily notice when you aren’t sharing the values of God as much as you used to. It really is okay because the pressures of daily life sometimes causes us to move further away from the core values that we need to keep our relationship spiritual and in tune with God. It is sad to see that couples are no longer attending church together and that there are so many divorces happening today. How do we avoid it? There are a few ways to renew your relationship in Christ which will give you a strong and present foundation to keep things going.
Remember that the ultimate love is God
Your love for your partner will grow stronger once the both of you realize that God is love and that first and foremost your love should be for him. This will allow your relationship and the love you have for each other to get stronger. Loving with a Christian heart means loving completely and going back to those values will make your love humble and selfless again. In sharing your love with God, your partner and your children you will feel the warmth and coziness that comes with loving and inner peace.
Go to church and mingle with other likeminded couples
There is nothing better than being with individuals or couples that feel as strongly as you do about their religion. You will sometimes see what is missing from your relationship by looking at other couples which will give you time to discuss your shortcomings with your partner and in turn listen to theirs. Have fun excursions with your religious friends and enjoy worshipping God together. Click here to find out why it is good for couples to go to church.
Make special dates
Life is incredibly busy and we tend to forget to take a few hours out of our schedules to spend special and quality time together. Make at least one date with your partner a month. This must be a night or day where it is just the two of you. There must not be any distractions and it should be special for the both of you. Take a look at http://dateandsimple.com/ for some great dating tips. It is important to spend a lot of time with your children but as a couple you need the adult time for reflecting on your lives and just falling in love all over again.
Instead of rushing your morning prayer and quiet time while you get ready for work take the time with your partner in the mornings or evenings and say a prayer together. This is a great way to bond with each other and with God. This is also wonderful to air all your dirty laundry and ask for the help you need with the problems that you are experiencing in your relationship. Click here for some great prayer inspiration.
