Day Thirty:30 day husband/partner encouragement challenge

“…This is my beloved, and this is my friend…”

Song of Solomon 5:16b

Friends can be completely honest with each other, but friendships are strained when

truth is not spoken in love. How are you speaking to your beloved? Are you so “used” to

him that you don’t appreciate the wonder of his friendship? That is your challenge today.

Is your sweetheart your best friend? Does he know this? Have you told him, or do you

assume he “just knows”?

Friendship is something that is cultivated through the good times and the bad. Friends

can share their hearts, but they don’t step on each other’s hearts.

The way to have and be a good friend is to cultivate and celebrate the relationship. As

you end this “30-Day Encouragement Challenge,” celebrate your friendship with your

husband. Get alone and reflect on your beloved friend. Write him a letter, listing the

qualities you admire and appreciate about him. If you are creative with words, write and

frame a poem about him.

Perhaps you can prepare a special meal, just for the two of you, and read the letter or

poem to him. Ask if you can pray for him, and if he is willing, thank God for your love

and friendship, asking for His blessing on your home.

Encouragement, as you have seen these past 30 days, is a synonym for love in action.

Mr Wonderful is not only wonderful he is my best friend 🙂
