Day 8- Husband Encouragement Challenge


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

* You can't say anything negative about your husband . . . to your husband, or to anyone else.* Say something that you admire or appreciate about your husband . . . to your husband and to someone else.

"But who can find a faithful man?" (Proverbs 20:6b)

Faithfulness is a wonderful but rare quality today, especially in regard to marriage. Do you understand how important this 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.

Contemporary 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 that 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, remain faithful yourself, and discover ways to encourage faithfulness in your mate. The Bible says that husbands may "be won by the conduct of their wives" (1 Peter 3:1b). You may also want to seek counsel from a mature, godly individual or couple.

*My husband is faithful to me and always has been. However, he does struggle like most men. I am very blessed to have a husband that overcomes his struggles instead of giving in to his own self. He does this in numerous ways, not just physical. He also supports me and defends me and believes that I am the answer to his prayers. (His words, not mine). I do not take this lightly and I try so very hard every day to be the wife that he deserves. Because of the love that we show each other and the respect that we have for one another, our marriage is truly wonderful. Not that we do not struggle, but we always try with everything within us to put each other first. And, that makes for a wonderful and truly faithful marriage.

Please join us in this "Husband Encouragement Challenge"! You will see great results!
