Awaken Love ~ A Review

Awaken Love: THE SONG Couple’s Devotional is a 6-week book for couples to help awaken love in their marriage. With daily relationship insights and prayer points drawn from the Song of Solomon, this couple’s devotional will help couples to grow in their relationship with God and one another. THE SONG  is available as a Small Group Study, Pastor’s Kit, Devotional, and Participant’s Guide and all are a candid exploration of God’s plan for relationships, love and marriage. With straightforward Bible teaching through the Song of Solomon from pastor and bestselling author Kyle Idleman, THE SONG addresses real-world relationship issues like dating and romance, intimacy, conflict, restoration and cultivating true commitment.  THE SONG is also a full length movie.

 

Awaken Love-cover        Marriage is hard work. I may have only been married for 5 years, but in that short time I have no doubt that the one thing I know is that, this is not an easy thing to do. It takes a lot of time and work. It takes lots of intentionality too.

This is a very short devotional. Meant to be used together, each day’s devotion is rooted in Biblical wisdom straight from the most beautiful love letter ever written.

The day begins with a scripture from the Song of Solomon and then moves towards a short reading. These are typically, an example of the topic at hand for the day, followed by ideas for application in your own relationship. I love “the Bridge” at the end, where Kyle where there are some very cute, sometime cheesy, ideas to go along with the devotion. Sometimes they are ideas for how to make more time for each other; some days there are thoughts for prayer.

Certainly we all have days in our marriages that challenge us; again and again in these readings there is the reminder that we need to make time. We need to step out of our comfort zone (we all get comfortable and maybe a bit lazy at times right? lol)  Do that little thing that shows our love; open our mouth and share a fun memory; something you really love about your other half. 🙂

 

With weekly topics such as rediscovering that romance, faith, fighting, and strengthening that commitment this devotional will definitely help  couples to grow in their relationship.
