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

Filed under: 30 day husband/partner encouragement challenge — by my3boysandi @ 8:05 am

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

You’re moving toward the home stretch of your 30-day challenge! Just a reminder of

what you’ve committed:

“You can’t say anything negative about your husband… to your husband…or to anyone

else, about your husband. “Each day, say something that you admire or appreciate

about your husband…to your husband…and to someone else, about your husband!

“In all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works…” Titus 2:7a

Does the “30-Day Encouragement Challenge” seem like hard work? Or is it becoming a

pleasant exercise in genuine Christ-likeness in your home? You are only scratching the

surface of ways to encourage your mate.

Is your husband organized? Is he diligent? Is he persistent? These are all related to a

pattern of personal disciplines that are worthy of your praise. Affirm him for one or more

of these traits that you see in him.

Some men have not developed these qualities because they are naturally more

spontaneous. You can praise his spontaneity! Perhaps God has called you alongside to

help him with disciplines he has not yet developed – but this does not include nagging.

You can keep him organized.

Whatever the need, you can be your husband’s cheerleader, encouraging him when he

wants to give up.

Go Mr Wonderful Go

Mr Wonderful is quite an organized person.  He likes to be punctual.  This is something I have always admired in men.

He is patient and persists in helping others. He is diligent and likes to do a good job.
