The Beauty of the seemingly mundane ~

"Everyday love" in marriage - and our relationship with the Father seem so similar. Days go by, things get familiar....we get to know His word more and more and it becomes us......and in the marriages that I admire most - the couples seem to KNOW each other so very well that they can read the slightest eye flicker, or hand gesture or know that a laugh is merely a "courtesy" one, when everyone else hasn't got a clue. (ie...if you're Steph, you buy the coffee with all the favorite/specifics that Tex prefers.)

I think that that is what makes the deep love in marriage such an amazing thing to behold...
And likewise, the intimacy of truly knowing the LORD.
By knowing God's word well, our disposition changes......and without even perhaps our needing to consciously think through things, we walk away from those things that we know He would not be pleased to see us do - Because we love Him.
We don't need to make a list of reasons TO DO or NOT TO DO something before our feet start moving in the direction we KNOW would please Him. It is the way of the Spirit of God in guiding our steps. The deepest feelings of love are solid because they are based on growing knowledge of the one loved.

Christ IS the knowledge of God
2 Cor 4:6
"For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ."

Col 2:2
"being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God's mystery, which is Christ......."

We love him because we've known "Adam knew Eve and she conceived and bore a son."

Of course, this thought came to my mind by Ozzie Chambers, and well, Rascal Flatts.... :) Their song "Everyday Love"
Love in marriage usually causes me to think of Christ and His church.......
The true eternal romance.
