Love slows down. A 7-day Devotional Based on the Book Love Slows Down

Love Slows Down – Day 2

As I went looking for our next devotional about dads, I found this one named “Love Slows Down” by Joël and Jonathan Malm. In a world where we see so much of a desire or need for instant gratification the topic of slowing down is interesting. In a world where everyone is busy and always on the go the topic of slowing down is intriguing. Today’s devotional draws us in with the statement “We were made from love, made for love, and are called to live in God’s love.” Today’s devotional is based on the book “Love Slows Down” by author Joël Malm. Looking to learn more about the book, it speaks to how packed it is with truth, guidance, and spiritual wisdom. This devotional will carry us through a week as it is a 7-day devotional. Its introduction shares how it will help us slow down and trade in anger, anxiety, and hurry for life with God’s love! I’m excited to get to see where we go.


Let’s check out our scriptures for today’s devotional:


‘There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. ‘

1 John 4:18

‘For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.’

Romans 8:38-39

Each morning I am so excited to get to see what God’s Word will say. I know God’s Word isn’t just words on a page or on a screen but rather God’s Word is alive and active and meets us right where we are at. Where are you today? What do the verses for today’s devotional speak to you? Will you cling to them? Will you meditate on them? Will you receive them?

Let’s be the dads who are filled with God’s love! Let’s be the dads who are filled to overflowing with God’s love! Let’s be the dads who from the overflow of our hearts, which is so filled with God’s love, pour love into our wives, kids, and the world around us! Let’s be the dads who are so filled with love that there is no fear! Let’s be the dads who allow God’s perfect love to drive out any threats or fears! Let’s be the dads who are so aligned with God that we are walking in faith, hope, and trust in Him rather than allowing the threats and lies of the devil to be trying to create fear of punishment when we know that “there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus“! Let’s be the dads who are living by faith, trust, and hope in Jesus so that His love casts out all fear and so that we don’t allow fear to be ruling our lives! Let’s be the dads who are “convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, nor heavenly rulers, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord“. Let’s be the dads who are with God and who are living our lives to bring our wives, our kids, and our world to Him too!
