30 DAYS OF GRATITUDE: DAY 9 – MAKE HIM YOUR FIRST PRIORITY.
DAY 9: MAKE HIM YOUR FIRST PRIORITY
D.I.Y: Text him and tell him that he is your first priority. Clear your schedule off everything and attend to him.
Go point: Be creative. Find ways of making his heart smile.
I know we are busy women and the current trends of the society haven’t made it easier for us. We work on 8 hours straight shifts 24/7 – 365 days, we have businesses to run, people to attend to, ministry to serve, babies to care for. Our schedules are basically full.
The rut can put your husband at an uncomfortable corner. He might not feel part of your world and sadly, most husbands feel so. Everything else takes precedence before him.
Well, I don’t mean that you should sit and wait for him the whole day – I would though if it were that easy – but it’s not.
You have to be deliberate in making him the first priority. I honestly think wives should be deliberate in making their husband’s a priority. Yes, you have a bible study to lead, and he’s just arrived from travelling – my suggestion, make him FIRST your priority. You are still serving Christ in serving him. The Bible study can be lead in the meantime by another person! Why not?
Take time and make him comfortable at home. Welcome your warrior home. When he’s comfortable, then you can embark on any other task.
Some of us are always running up and down that we leave our helps taking care of our husbands. To the extent of engaging in hearty chats since we are always busy. That is dangerous for your marriage. You are giving the enemy deliberate loopholes.
Some of us again make our husbands complete with God. God is not a fellow man – but some of us make our husbands feel as if they should compete with God and Pastors in Church. Gurl! Pray for wisdom. The Lord has his Throne. Your husband, has his place too. Please don’t conflate the two!
Clear up your schedule. The coffee dates for “catch up” with the girl squad can take the back seat.
Be hit by your “husband’s first priority plague”. He is code red! He is your first priority.
I sure have CODE RED! When the plague strikes, everything else STOPS!
VERSE OF THE DAY: Colossians 2:23 Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.
I pray that this day you will enable make my husband the first priority in my life. He comes first. Help me serve him with a zealous heart all the more than anything or anyone else. Help me to make him feel appreciated and that his space is his. Give me ways of attending to him that will help him not feel in competition with anything or anyone else.
In Jesus name I pray.
