5 Simple Ways To Create Biblical Marriage Bliss
As a Christian woman, you know that God wants you to have a happy and healthy marriage. But what does that look like? How can you create “biblical marriage bliss” as the Bible talks about? Here are 5 tips I recommend. I promise these are all things I try to do with my husband too and I can honestly say we’ve never been happier.
1. Pray Together Every Day
One of the most important things you can do for your marriage is to pray together every day. This creates a strong spiritual bond between you and your husband and allows God to work in both of your lives. Prayer is also a great way to deal with conflict in your marriage; when you’re feeling angry or hurt, pray for God to help you forgive your husband and move on.
Also, make it a point to pray for each other. Ask God to lead your husband in the direction He has chosen for him and ask Him to provide strength and guidance. Pray about his stress at work, his friendships, his relationship with Lord, etc. The Bible tells us to “pray without ceasing” so make it a priority in your daily life.
2. Communicate Well
In order to have a happy and healthy marriage, you need to be able to communicate well with your husband. This means being able to openly share your thoughts, feelings, and needs with each other. It’s also important to be a good listener; truly listen to what your spouse is saying and try to understand their perspective. If you’re having trouble communicating, consider seeking out pre-marital or couples counseling; a trained counselor can help you learn how to communicate effectively.
Something I do with my husband is I tell him when I want to just vent or I need him to problem solve with me. Ladies, your husband naturally wants to fix things so giving him a clear parameter for the conversation is really helpful.
3. Spend Time Together Daily
It’s important to make time for each other every day, even if it’s just a few minutes before bedtime. Talk about your day, share something funny that happened, or just enjoy each other’s company. You might also want to schedule regular “date nights” where you can focus on spending quality time together without distractions like work or kids. Regular time spent together will help keep the spark alive in your marriage!
One of the reasons we see adults getting divorced once their kids graduate and move out is because they didn’t spend time nurturing their relationship while the kids were at home. It’s important to prioritize your relationship as a couple even when you have kids. Take time for just you two as a couple.
4. Be Intimate Regularly
Intimacy is an important part of a happy and healthy marriage; it helps you physically connect with your spouse and strengthens the emotional bond between you both. Make sure you’re carving out time for intimacy on a regular basis; this could mean anything from cuddling on the couch to having sex. If you’re not feeling particularly sexual right now, that’s okay! There are still plenty of ways to be intimate without sex; just make sure you’re being affectionate with each other in some way every day.
5. Serve Each Other Unselfishly
One of the best things you can do for your marriage is to serve your spouse unselfishly. This means always looking for ways to help out, whether it’s doing the dishes when they’re tired or running errands when they’re busy at work. It might not seem like much, but these little acts of service can make a big difference in how happy and connected you both feel. Plus, it sets a good example for your kids!
