Love Your Husband Challenge: Day Four

“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” Colossians 3:13

Has your husband wronged you? Regardless of the offense, carrying unforgiveness in your heart is a burden the Lord does not want you to bear. Cast your cares on the Lord today. He loves you so much. Choose to forgive your husband for all things, large and small, and you will reap the reward of peace in your life!

Faith-Filled Idea:

Take just a moment to ponder how greatly our blameless Lord has forgiven you. How much more should we, fellow sinners, forgive our husbands? Pray and ask the Lord to help you forgive. With Him, all things are possible! If it helps you to release the burden of unforgiveness you bear, write your burden on a slip of paper, light it on fire, and drop it into a glass jar. Observe the ashes left behind and be encouraged; Jesus makes beautiful things from the ashes in our lives! Whenever you feel like picking up that burden again, continue to lay it at the foot of the cross. It is not yours to carry, sister.

Prayer:

Lord, please heal my heart. Show me how to forgive my husband. I give you my burdens now and do not want to pick them up again. Please bring healing into our marriage.

Hi! I’m Tara, a mama to three wild, wonderful boys on earth (and one tiny boy in heaven) and wife to one handsome husband for sixteen years. When you see someone has had a hand in writing a book for moms, you immediately assume they must have it all together. I do not. Maybe you don’t either. But I have some good news for you…we have a perfectly gracious Savior who loves us so very much, imperfections and all!

Together, we can learn who He is and who we are in Him, and together, we can take this one little life He has given us and pour out His love in a way that changes hearts, especially our own!
