Day Three: "...love suffers long, and is kind..." 1 Cor. 13:4
"And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Phil. 4:19
ooh, 2 verses ;)
So now I'm on to day 3, maybe if I didn't have 3 kids, I could do this daily but I think doing it weekly helps the message to sink in better. I take each task and really try to chew on it the entire week. This week I am to continue to speak positively to and about my husband. I'm to notice the things he does to help me and encourage and acknowledge them. The study says to be aware that he may not be gentle but I think he is more gentle than me sometimes. We sometimes joke that I'm the "man" because I have more muscle strength then him. I've always been the strong girl (maybe that's why no one messed with me growing up, lol).
Don't complain when he does do something for you in his way. For instance, I'd never tell him because it's just not important, I ended up redoing the dishes he had loaded up. That's what I meant when I said he got the ball rolling. I zoomed through the kitchen that day and got it all clean because he got me started in the right direction.
Nancy says: "...you can't expect your husband to make you feel more secure, loved, etc. Remember that only God can meet the deepest needs of your heart."
