Dangerously in Love

Beyonce said she is “dangerously in love” with her man! We know it, or at least from the distance of our flat screen, we see it. Does it seem to you that she is dangerously in love with Jay?  Yes I realize the song “Dangerously in Love” was written over ten years ago but it seem so befitting based on the perceptions of their marriage.

Now shift gears and get into the driver’s seat of your marriage – ask yourself the question, am I dangerously in love with my spouse? This question obviously can be answered many ways, so lets provide a fair standard that we can all use as a measurement – the lyrics.

Baby I love you, you are my life
The happiest moments weren’t complete if you weren’t by my side
You’re my relation and connection to the sun
With you next to me there’s no darkness I can’t overcome
You are the raindrops I am the seed,
With you and God, who’s the sunlight I’ll bloom and grow so beautifully Baby I’m so proud, proud to be your girl
You make the confusion go all away from this cold and messed up world

Cause I am in love with you, you set me free
I can’t do this thing called life without you here with me
‘Cause I’m dangerously in love with you
I’ll never leave just keep lovin’ me the way I love you loving me

So, are you dangerously in love? You’re probably saying, ‘I used to be dangerously in love at the beginning of our marriage.”  If so, what will it take for you to get back to being dangerously in love?  I want that for your marriage and I believe it can happen.  Consider the verses below and share your thoughts on what couples can do to be dangerously in love.

Revelation 2:4-5 Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first.

Last minute Valentine’s Day shoppers, this one’s for you!

Hey men, listen! Don’t stand in line today for that dull, ordinary Hallmark card that you’ve waited till the last minute to buy. It’s not worth the $2.89 you’ll spend. Plus, your wife will keep it on the shelf to please your ego and will soon store it with all the other thoughtless cards you’ve given her in the past. Instead, I have the perfect inscription for the card that will last a lifetime.  You probably never thought you could find the perfect description of your wife. The card that says it all! Perfect words, spoken so eloquently, never fading, never dull, simply perfect!

Open your Bible. Yes, I said your Bible. Just bear with me.  As a matter of fact, click here and read Song of Solomon 4:1-7. Ok, now I hope you believe me. These words by Solomon have to be the best love letter, poem, and Valentine card ever written.

So if you can’t make you wife a card with these words, then just open the bible and read it to her after that special candlelit dinner you prepared for her.  And ladies, if you’re reading this, and not sure if your man will, email it to him – here’s the link: http://wp.me/p1Ne14-2O

And finally, continue to work on the “Rekindling the Flame in Your Marriage” by taking a look at the next three commandments:

3. Thou shalt be attractive
Work to be attractive physically, mentally, and spiritually.

4. Thou shalt compliment each other
Listen to the compliments in Song of Solomon 1:15-16 and share them with your spouse.  

5. Thou shalt set aside a date night
With the busy schedules families face every day, finding a free moment to connect with your spouse can end up feeling like one more task on your already full plate. But if you put off spending time together until a “better time” comes along, it will eventually lead to emotional distance between you and your spouse. Make spending quality time with your spouse a priority – tonight!

So how are you showing your love for your spouse today, and hopefully every day? Share with us in the comments below!
