The scripture of the day started while Aaron and I were getting to know each other. We were just friends and not dating exclusively. I thought of the scripture of the day because I wanted to get to know the real Aaron, and also (don't tell him) I wanted to have an excuse to talk to him :) every day. When it was my turn, I shared a scripture and then I explained why I liked the scripture and what thoughts came to my mind as I was reading/studying it. Then when it was Aaron turn, he would do the same.
Every other day one of us had to share the scripture of the day. Let me tell you, I looked forward to this time of the day with great anticipation. We could share it at any specific time, it just had to be during that day, and it could be a verse or a chapter if you wanted to. I looked forward to hear Aaron's scripture of the day, I was always inspired by his testimony, his love for God and his willingness to obey. Now that i look back, the scripture of the day opened many doors for me. For instance, our conversations were always meaningful, and we could talk about anything (even girlie things). Due to our conversations, we got to know each other very well and there was no room for pretending. I love that!. More than anything, i got to know Aaron's soul and fell in love with the real Aaron ( I LOVE him more and more each day. I'm so blessed to have the best husband!..cheesy... i know but true).
We kept sharing the scripture of the day throughout our entire courtship and engagement. We kept at it for a few months after we were married. But then we both got really busy and did our personal study on our own.
However, "the scripture of the day" is back! During the week, our time is so limited and we hardly get to see each other. The scripture of the day is helping us know exactly what's going on in our hearts and minds even when we are away from each other, just like old times.
Try it, it's wonderful....
