Action: Give her space
Launchpad: We have this notion that when a woman accepts a man’s proposal to be his wife and ultimately settles down with him, she no longer has anything to herself, including space! It is sad that some men take the role of an Emperor and rule their families with an iron fist. I refer you to http://ourmarriagechronicles.com/2016/06/17/the-narcissistic-husband/ for more. They control every move the wife makes.
They monitor every actions. They make their wives account to the last penny of their expenditures. If she doesn’t answer his calls, there will be a showdown in the evening. He dominates every conversation and argument, making sure that he emerges the winner.
He always wants his way no matter the cost. Such husbands are very controlling and manipulative. They will always have an excuse for bad behavior or decision made. But my question is; why should you gain the whole world and lose your family? Is it worth it?
Your wife needs space for herself.
Space to be herself.
Some quite time to meditate and sink in everything that’s happening around her world.
Sometimes you will understand and sometimes you will need the grace to understand.
But she definitely would do with some space.
She needs space to fulfill God’s purpose in her life. Maybe God has called her to be a leader in her social or public space. Catalyze it instead of suffocating it.
She needs space to study and build her career. Walk with her through this journey.
She needs to express herself in her own language. Be there to listen.
Sometimes she needs space to heal and reconcile with herself.
Yielding your hard stance for a better and healthy family is a worthy gamble.
Sometimes we just need to let our wives be. Give her space.
By these I don’t mean abandoning her and letting her go. No.
Your presence must always be there.
You gotta keep tabs of what’s going on, support where you can, contribute if necessary, facilitate where there’s an opportunity to. This is our noble and lovely duty to God and to her.
To the Glory of God the father.
Bible Verse:
1 Cor 13:4-7; 4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;  does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;  does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;  bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Prayer:
My Heavenly Father, it’s my desire to nurture every gift that you have put in my wife. Today I purpose to create room for your purpose in my wife to be fulfilled. Forgive me for the times I have acted otherwise.
In Jesus name I pray.
Amen.
