Day Twenty: 30 day husband/partner encouragement challenge

Filed under: 30 day husband/partner encouragement challenge — by my3boysandi @ 7:01 am

“And be kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ

also forgave you.” Eph. 4:32

It’s time for some heart examination. As you continue in this 30-day challenge, have you

found any roots of bitterness that are contaminating your relationship with your

husband? Do you understand that as long as you are unwilling to forgive your husband –

by God’s grace and in His power – you will not be able to encourage him? Your own

resentment will keep getting in the way. Now is the time to deal with any unforgiving

attitudes. Forgive him, even as God has forgiven you.

Is your husband a forgiving man? Does he keep short accounts of your problems?

Express your thankfulness for such a man.

Does your husband – rightly or wrongly – harbor grudges against you? Again, are there

things you need to change, or do you need to ask for his forgiveness for an offense?

Help your husband be more forgiving by quickly forgiving him for his mistakes.

I live one day at a time. Forgetting yesterday and starting fresh day afresh. Although we have our ups and downs I cant think of anything I need to forgive Mr Wonderful for at the moment.  No one except Jesus is perfect but Mr Wonderful is wonderful 🙂

  1. Jen, it is not the forgiving that is hard for me to do it is the forgetting.

    Hmmm…I will keep working on that.
