Encouraging Your Husband - Day 3

Happy Friday!!


I couldn't be more thankful that Friday has arrived than I am today!  It seems like ever since I took on this Encouragement Challenge from Revive Our Hearts I have been put to the test in my marriage more than ever! Even the smallest situations that we would never concern ourselves about have been turning into mountains!  So if you have decided to join me on this 30-day challenge to become a more loving and supportive wife be warned - this is not for the weak! You will want to give up every single day along the way, but if you somehow manage to just get through it I know it will make a life-changing difference! So here we go again...
 
Day 3:
 "...love suffers long, and is kind..." 1 Cor. 13:4
"And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Phil. 4:19
Love indeed suffers long and is kind. As you consider your Encouragement Challenge, determine today that you will not say anything negative to or about your husband. Speak kindly to him with words of genuine encouragement. If your husband is considerate of your needs, let him know that you have noticed. Thank
him for his kindness and consideration. Thank the Lord that your husband knows how to be both tough and tender. Sometimes it's difficult for a man to be gentle, kind or tender - especially if he hasn't had role models in these areas. If he's not a considerate person, appeal to him for help without complaining. Let him know that it's hard for you to handle some things alone. Then, when he moves in to help, don't insist that he do it your way. Be glad that he is responding, and express your gratitude. Ultimately, you can't expect your husband to make you feel more secure, loved, etc.
Remember that only God can meet the deepest needs of your heart.


 I wish you all the best in this challenge and am keeping your marriages in my prayers, hope you'll do the same for me :)

P.S. - Epcot pics coming soon (for real this time)! We had such a great time there and pictures are so wonderful because every time you look at them, it brings you right back into that moment when they were taken! Hope you all have wonderful weekends!!!

love always,
