Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24

Busyness is the uncaring culprit of inconsistent communication in marriage. Couples exhausted from a calendar of frantic activity have no emotional energy at the end of the day to engage in meaningful conversation. Like two sleepy ships they pass through the night unaware of the other’s tattered soul. However, hearts that dialogue daily are intentional with intimacy. It may be only 30 minutes of focused conversation after dinner, but wise couples stay verbally connected.

Often woman starve for words and men lack language. So husbands, make sure you unselfishly express yourself to your sweetheart. Ask the Lord to give your conversation clarity, compassion and depth. And wives, be patient with your man who wants to share his heart, but his speech needs a safe environment for expression. Your respect and approval frees him up to speak freely. Daily dialogue gives couples emotional connection that facilitates trust, security and love.

Set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12

Make sure your children know your priority of communication as a married couple. Tell your little ones that mom and dad need to grow their friendship with each other, so they can become better parents. Teach your children to respect the space you need as husband and wife to grow a healthy home. Next to salvation in Jesus, the best gift you can give your son and daughter is a maturing marriage. Hence, growing relationships require regular doses of meaningful discussion.

 

Have heart-to-hearts and your heart will grow fonder and your faith will grow fresher. When you talk with each other make sure you talk together to your h

Heavenly Father. Communication with Christ as a couple draws you closer to Him and to each other. Words birthed out of prayer build up and bring great joy. Love is the language you employ to engage each other’s heart, mind and soul. Indeed, dialogue daily and like dollar cost averaging, your relational equity will compound.

 

How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Psalm 119:103

 

Prayer: Heavenly Father I pray for an open, loving heart that shares daily with my spouse.
