Yesterday, in fact this entire week!, was a busy one.
My boss, a day ago, asked me to stay a little later before leaving and finish up a project. I had known ahead of time I would need to stay late and was mentally counting the minutes I could spare. I found a way to quickly get the task done as best I knew how and asked her if it was alright if I left not completely finishing. She consented and thanked me for doing what I could.
I knew I only had about 35 min. And each on of those precious minutes were beginning to mentally be assigned a task when I got home leaving me with 0 minutes spare.
My husband was pre-warned by me the night before he was going to be on his own today. I told him after I leave for work I won’t see him til midnight! But leaving work and having each of my minutes calculated for I just couldn’t shake this feeling that I should stop in and see my husband before zooming home.
So I did.
As I thought about it later it occurred to me that maybe that nudging was a prompting from the holy spirit. Maybe that was God’s way of telling me to pursue my relationship with my husband.
-To just stop in and see him before I rush off to the next thing.
-To take time for my husband.
-To just show I care & like him.
Maybe that was God fighting for our marriage. Apparently God cares even far more than I do. I’m not the best pursuer of relationships; I’m more of an independent, thinking of my own ‘world’ kinda gal. But God cares. He wants us as a married couple to take time for each other. He wants us to take time to talk and say “what’s up, babe?”.
And, so I did.
And it was good.
