Day One! Welcome. And thanks for joining us as we begin this 8 day adventure to deeper intimacy with God and your spouse. Know that we are praying for you, and trust that God is going to strengthen and enrich your relationship with him while bringing you and your spouse closer together.
Let's begin by going over, quickly, what we're going to do over the next 8 days. Our goal is deeper intimacy; a deeper intimacy with God AND a deeper intimacy with your spouse! This involves first, a commitment. You and your spouse are committing to setting aside time in these next 8 days to accomplish 4 things...
For the next 8 days, we will post everything you need for your journey right here in the blog. Our goal is to post each days blog by 9:00 a.m. EST. Be sure to visit the blog each day. Follow the readings and discussion questions, and enjoy some quiet time together.
Our goal is deeper intimacy. A deeper intimacy with God. AND a deeper intimacy with your spouse!
We realize that not everyone is able to participate in this adventure this week, so here is what we are going to do. If you are taking the 8 day challenge this week, let us know so we can be praying for you! If you are planning to do the challenge, but this week doesn't work for you, simply let us know when you do begin, so we can pray for your then!
Okay, with all that said, let's do this!!
Here is the Day One, 8 Day's of Intimacy post!
- What strikes you as you read through Genesis 1, in terms of who God is?
- As you read verses 26-28, what would you say was God's design and plan for the man and the woman, at this point?
- Do you remember those feelings of young-love early in your relationship? Here in the first chapter of the Song of Songs/Song of Solomon, we hear to the early words of affection from this couple in love. What do you remember from those days in your relationship? Share some of those memories and remember what it was like when you were falling into love.
A Prayer for Both of You
Dear God, You are the creator of all things. It is You who created the man and the woman and placed them into a relationship with you. Help us to see Your power in our lives, as we begin this adventure to rediscover intimacy with You and each other. Allow us the opportunity to share time in your word, time in prayer, and time together. Help us to fall deeper in love with you and with each other. Amen.
Remember, you can add to this prayer time by praying for the needs and asks that you have for your relationship and family.
Now Go and Be Together
Day One has been about remembering the beginning. First our beginning with God as the Creator, and then in Song of Songs with the beginning of an exciting love affair. As you begin your adventure of physical intimacy, remember those early days when your love was passionate and exciting! When a touch from your lover was electrifying. When a kiss made you melt. When being together made the world stop spinning. Enjoy your lover once again!
