Day 16 ~ 30 Day Husband Encouragement Challenge for Wives

"And the LORD God said, " It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him." GENESIS 2:18


God says that it is not good for man to be alone. But thte way some women critize their mates, the husbands may long for solitude.  Be careful today and not critize your mate, but look for ways to encourage him personally and publicly.


Speaking of communication, does your husband communicate with you? God has made you a companion and helper for your husband, and part of being "one flesh" with him is the privilege of sharing and discussing personal needs and concerns. Thank God for that wonderful gift. Thank you husband for communicating with you.


If your spouse does not communicate with you as you wish, look for ways that he communicates that are normal for him-smiling at you, nodding his head, even a pleasant "grunt!" - and than thank him for letting you know he cares. Perhaps he needs to be lovingly taught to communicate. Be patient with him...and listen when he does speak.


Prayer for the day:

Pray that your husband will choose healthy, God honoring activities. Pray that he will not live in bondage to any questionable habits or hobbies, but that he will experience freedom in holiness as he yeild's to the spirit's control. (I COR. 6:12, 10:13, II TIM. 2:4)
