30 Day Husband Encouragement: Day 17

22 Sep


Day Seventeen:

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One
is understanding.” Prov. 9:10

Are you a wise woman? Do you open your mouth with wisdom, as Proverbs 31:26 suggests? As you continue in your 30-day challenge, remember that a wise woman encourages her husband. Is your husband a “wise man?” Does he have a godly perspective that comes from knowing God and walking with Him in obedience? Does he have a sense of purpose for his life and vision for your home? Tell him how much this means to you.
If you are not sure about your husband’s vision for your home, ask him, “Honey, what do you want to accomplish with our marriage and home in the years to come?” and “How can I help you accomplish that?” If he does not have a vision, your questions may inspire him to develop one.

If your husband is not walking with God – or perhaps, does not know the Lord – you have the opportunity and responsibility to practice your faith and create a thirst for God. Thank God for giving your husband a place in his heart that only He can fill, and keep praying that he will turn to the Lord to fill that vacuum!

    Okay, so just being real honest here I haven’t done very great on the encouraging thing the past few days. I feel a little (or alot) like that verse in proverbs that says something like ‘a wise woman buildeth her house, but the foolish plucketh it down with her own hands!’. ((Sigh)), yes that would be me. And yeah life happens and we’ve had alot of frustrations come up but that’s not exactly an excuse for being horrible. SO I’m trying to determine…again…to get back on track and be more encouraging for the sake of my marriage. And I’m very thankful that the Lord’s mercies are new every morning! 🙂 Just wanted to check in. Still enjoying reading all the posts….even if I haven’t been doing the greatest job at following them!
    Have a great day.

      I must still continue the series… I just faded a bit due to the fact that I wasn’t being very encouraging… Its harder than one thinks. I haven’t got a “My Husband Rocks” t-shirt, I really want one though!
