30 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 6: LOVE HIM
DAY 6: LOVE HIM
D.I.Y: Write him little love notes, tell him “I LOVE YOU”, make his favorite meal, pack his lunch, send him a gift, affirm his choices, snuggle him down – go all out for him!
Go point: Be the lovebird – sing to his love tune.
Love can only be love if translated from a noun to a verb. It’s not just the word, but the word in action.
We often assume that their masculinity makes them hardened towards emotions. But that couldn’t be further from the truth.
He needs to know that you love him beyond your career, ministry or children. Yes, children.
You see, most of us dear wives, when the kids come, we shift our allegiance. We get so engrossed in the kids and forget that our husbands too need us.
They were there first and that position is NEVER taken by anything or anyone else. We are quick to fulfill our children requests but drag theirs down the timeline.
I do not mean that you should neglect your children. No. You should be very present and deliberate- both – OF YOU in raising a godly offspring. His seat, is his.
Your children hold a different position in your marriage. Your marriage is of equal but different authorities, your children come under your banner.
Don’t neglect your husband. Yes, make it intentional to take care of his sexual needs – even when you are not really enthusiastic about it.
I have a Bible verse that I have carried through my marriage. It has helped me declare strength to myself to please my husband even when I feel weary and not so “in the mood”.
I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME! – Philippians 4:13.
Might seem odd, but I do declare that word on myself. And yes! I do ALL things – for him. Isn’t our Lord amazing!
How does your husband like to be treated when he gets home? A back rub? Foot massage? A hot cuppa tea, lying down for a minute, making love on the couch, dancing with you and the kids…
VERSE OF THE DAY: Titus 2:4 Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children…
I know am to love my husband, but sometimes I find other secondary loves drawing me in faster than my husband. It’s easy to go the easy way and not put in much effort towards knowing and fulfilling his needs.
Lord teach me to love my husband. Teach me to submit my preferences for him.
Teach me to teach my children about his authority in our family.
Teach me how to love him in a way that it will demonstrate the love of Christ to my children and to the world.
Teach me to love him into greatness.
In Jesus name I pray.
