Day 8 ~ 30 Day Husband Encouragement Challenge for Wives

How are you doing with the "30~Day Encouragement Challenge"? In case you've forgotten, here's the challenge:

*You can't say anything negative about your your husband...or to anyone else, about your husband.

*Say something that you admire or appreciate about your your husband...and to someone else about your husband.


"...but who can find a faithful man?" Proverbs 20:6b


Faithfullness is a wonderful but rare quality today, especially in regard to marriage. Do you understand how important that quality is? Your challenge is to continue to root out all negative speaking and plant seeds of encouragement instead.  You may be amazed at what will grow.


Comtemporary culture often entices men to be unfaithful to their wedding vows and spiritual commitments. Appreciate your husband's faithfulness - how he is loyal to you. Let him know you are glad he has 'stick-to-it-iveness' in your marriage.  Appreciate his faithfulness to God. (If you have an unfaithful husband, this is a difficult area for you. Pray, speak the truth in love, remian faithful yourself, and discover ways to encourage faithfulness in your mate.  The Bible says that husbands may " won by the conduct of their wives" {I Peter 3:1}. You may also want to seek counsel from a mature, godly individual or couple.)


Prayer for the day:

Pray that your husband will work hard to provide for your family, to the best of his ability. Pray that the character qualities necessary for a sucessful career and ministry will be a growing part of his character --persistence, decisiveness, strenght, an analytical mind, organizational skills, positive relationship with people, determination, etc. (Rom 12:11; I Cor. 15:58)
