How do you REALLY think of your husband?
"... let the wife see that she respects her husband." Ephesians 5:33
Last month we talked about the power wives have when it comes to encouraging our husbands.
Today I'm gonna tell you about a great resource that will help you practically live it out.
When a man accepts a recognition on the stage and spoke these words,
"I want to thank my wife first and foremost. She's the one who believes in me when I doubt myself.
She sticks with me when things are hard. She stands by me and makes me believe that I can conquer anything.
This award, really, goes to her; because without her I wouldn't be here on this stage."
Do you want to be that kind of wife to your husband? Do you want your husband to speak of you this way?
I know I do.
Now I'm gonna ask you a question:
How do YOU think of your husband?
Not what you say about him in public. What do you THINK about him in your mind?
Are they things that align with what you say in public? Are they things you would never say to him in person?
I believe every wife struggles with this. Because we are sinners.
We are so quick to point out the flaws in others (especially our husbands).
But what we think directly affects what we say and do.
If we think negatively about our husbands, what we say and do will not be as positive as we want.
We have to think differently about him before we can act differently.
That's why I created this recycled leather journal with a focus on praising our husbands, according to Philippians 4:8.
"... whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things."
How differently would we think about our husbands if we fill these pages with the good things we see in our husbands day in and day out?
Pop this journal open and start jotting down what's worthy of praise about your husband.
Soon, you will notice a difference in how you think or say about your husband.
Together we can be wives who see that we respect our husbands.
Will you be a part of this movement?
