Day 504 ~ Goals for your Marriage? (XVII)

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge o the Holy One is understanding.'" (Proverbs 9:10) 
  • You can't say anything negative about your husband . . . to your husband . . . or to anyone else, about your husband.
  • Say something that you admire or appreciate about your husband . . . to your husband . . . and to someone else, about your husband!
Are you a wise woman? Do you open your mouth with wisdom, as Proverbs 31:26 suggests? As you continue in your 30-day challenge, remember that a wise woman encourages her husband. Is your husband a "wise man?" Does he have a godly perspective that comes from knowing God and walking with Him in obedience? Does he have a sense of purpose for his life and vision for your home? Tell him how much this means to you.
If you are not sure about your husband's vision for your home, ask him, "Honey, what do you want to accomplish with our marriage and home in the years to come?" and "How can I help you accomplish that?" If he does not have a vision, your questions may inspire him to develop one.
If your husband is not walking with God—or perhaps, does not know the Lord - you have the opportunity and responsibility to practice your faith and create a thirst for God. Thank God for giving your husband a place in his heart that only He can fill, and keep praying that he will turn to the Lord to fill that vacuum!    
Day 17 ! . . .    
I'm going to keep this simple and not let it get too wordy.  


This gives me something to think about.

We've always talked about having a beautiful house, and now, growing The Blessed Spoon...  

But I have never asked my hubby what he wants to accomplish in our marriage.

Yes I am supportive.

Yes I have been encouraging and thanking him each day.

And just thought that "living happily ever after" was the goal... chuckle, chuckle...

"What do we want to accomplish in our marriage?"


This is definitely not a "one-day" conversation.  Guess what we'll be working on...?

[here's to you finding your... ]
