Day Twenty-two: 30 day husband/partner encouragement challenge

Filed under: 30 day husband/partner encouragement challenge — by my3boysandi @ 9:25 am

“Let your speech always be with grace…” Col. 4:6a

Focus today on how you represent your husband in your home, your church, and your

community. In this challenge to encourage, ask: “If all my family and friends knew about

my husband came from a filter of what I’ve said about him, what would they think of my

husband?” Do you need to change the filter?

Do you talk positively about your husband to others… or do you complain and criticize?

Your speech should reflect 1 Cor. 13 love. Your words should be kind, and should never

“rejoice in iniquity” (v. 6). Refrain from listing your husband’s faults to others. Satan likes

to trick us in this area – be wary of sharing barbed “prayer requests.”

Remember, “Love will cover a multitude of sins” (1 Pet. 4:8b). Present your husband

before others today in a strong, positive manner. Slip in a “good word” for your spouse.

Resist the urge to correct or belittle him in front of others. Some of what you say may

come back to him – and you want your words to be sweet, building him up and never

tearing him down.

Don’t forget: you are always criticizing – or encouraging – before an audience. God hears

your conversations when you are alone with your husband in your own home. May your

speech be always seasoned with grace.

While you are considering how your speech can reflect the grace of the Lord in your

husband’s life, don’t forget that your words can also encourage others. When you share

what God is doing in your life through this “30-Day Encouragement Challenge”, others

will be blessed. Perhaps other wives will be moved to take up this challenge.

Today being still sick I stayed home while Mr Wonderful took the boys to church with him. I pray they all get something out of it. Praise Mr Wonderful for taking the boys with him.

Today Im also praying for James and Daniel 2 more hubbys of ladies I know who are doing (or thinking of doing) this challenge
