Do you find your marriage growing stale and in need of revival? Perhaps you desire more intentionality as a wife? Sister, I can tell you that this challenge will change things for you, just as it has for me. Commit with me to hiding these Scriptures and new habits in your heart this week. Just growing more purposeful in these small ways will awaken beauty in your marriage!
“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly, but the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness.” Proverbs 15:1-2 (NKJV)
Do you find yourself speaking harshly to your husband? It is so easy to do, but our words have the power to either destroy or to create new life in the heart of our husbands. Choose life! When you speak words of life, you will be filled with peace as well.
If you feel like making a negative comment to your husband today, close your lips and instead open your heart to the Lord in prayer. It is better to say nothing than to say something damaging or regretful. Speak only kind words today and for the remainder of the week. Choose one thing you can thank your husband for or compliment him on each day. This new habit will become easier and easier as you practice.
Lord, give me words that bring life to my husband. Fill my heart with self-control, that I would be able to honor You in all I say and do in my marriage.
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!
