Day 12 ~ 30 Day Husband Encouragement Challege for Wives

"With all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love." Eph 4:2


Part of the difficulty you may face as you continue in this 30-Day challenge to encourage your husband is that you really are fstruggling to find positive things to praise. Perhaps the problem is not with your husband. Have you checked your own heart?


Sometimes we get disillusioned because of our unreasonable or unrealsitic expectations (Prov 13:12). It may not be that our mates are doing something wrong; it's simply that we expect too much in some areas.


Our expectations must be met in God alone; and then we will have the right perspective to ask God for the healing and grace that we need to respond to others.


How sad that we give more grace to others than to those in our own homes. Today, try to look at your husband through eyes of grace. Verbally thank your husband for what he is already doing.


Prayer for the Day:

Pray that your husband will yeuld his sexual drive to the Lord and practice self control. Pray that your sexual intimacy together will be fresh, positive and with a reflection of selfless love. (Prov. 5:15, 16; I Cor. 7:3; Song of Solomon 7:10)
