Would you like to have an intimate marriage? Then make time to talk and listen. Plan a daily ‘sharing time’ with your spouse. Couples who have a time to sit down and talk each day have a higher level of intimacy than those couples who talk ‘whenever and wherever.’ Isn’t that also true in our relationship with God? If you have a daily quiet time with God in which you listen to Him as He speaks through the Scriptures and then, you talk to Him about what you have heard, your intimacy with God will grow. The same is true with your spouse. You schedule time for lunch. Why not schedule time for daily conversation? Communication leads to intimacy and intimacy leads to a growing marriage.
