Are you finding it difficult to secure a time to really communicate with your spouse on a regular basis? Have you been challenged to locate a prayer time together? Are you avoiding exercising? If your answer is “yes” to any of the above then I’ve got a solution for you? Try taking your marriage on a walk. Start by mapping out several courses around your neighborhood.
For example, Mary and I have our “short walk” which is a little less than a mile. The short walk is for when it’s getting dark, we have a short window of time or it’s too cold for a longer walk. Our next walking route is 2.8 miles. This is the one we really aspire to do as often as possible (2-3 times a week). And our final course is 3.2 miles. The latter one is for those “perfect” times, i.e., the weather is right, there is plenty of time and daylight. During these walk times we take turns openly communicating with one another and then with our heavenly Father. All the while, we’re enjoying some needed exercise and intimacy. Try taking your marriage for a walk this week; you’ll feel better as you connect with each other and with God.
