Day Fifteen: 30 day husband/partner encouragement challenge

“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…” 2 Pet.

3:18a

Sometimes we live so close to our spouse that we fail to see him as others do; we only

see our husband’s faults. But take a step back. Perhaps he is growing spiritually in ways

you have failed to appreciate. How can you encourage his growth in a fresh, new way?

Remember – your husband is accountable to God for his spiritual development. You are

accountable to God to encourage and not hinder that growth.

Can you identify an area of spiritual strength in your husband? Does he pray or read his

Bible regularly? Does he like to read about or discuss spiritual matters? Does he go to

church with you? Is he a spiritual leader? What do others say about him? If you can

identify a specific area, praise him for that.

If not, pray earnestly that God will work in his heart, and watch for signs of spiritual

growth in the future.

Mr Wonderful does go to church with us sometimes. I am praying that God works in his heart. I think it took me a long time to realize we were unequally yoked. I pray every day. I know im not the only one and that helps. I appreciate the fact that Mr Wonderful doesnt have a problem with me and the boys going to church. I remember thinking that My home schoolers dad did have a major problem with it. At least Mr Wonderful doesnt do that. He also is friends with many of my church friends. We share a lot of the same friends both male and female. I am thinking of one in particular and I know that God could hope Mr Wonderfuls eyes though that man. I was emailing my cousin about our dilemma a couple of days ago. Im thinking it may be a good idea to talk to our friend about it.

  4. I think it’s a positive sign that he doesn’t discourage you and the boys and even shares church friends with you. You never know who or what God will use to bring him to salvation – praying for you guys.
