Day 515 ~ Waiting on Guidance (XXVII)

"Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the Lord." (Psalms 31:24) 
You're moving toward the home stretch of your 30-day challenge! Just a reminder of what you've committed: 
  • 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!
You have almost completed the "30-Day Encouragement Challenge." Perhaps it has taken you a tremendous amount of courage to speak words of encouragement consistently to your husband. Courage comes as we place our trust in God. Have faith that God will continue to work long after your encouraging words have been shared.
There are lots of "tough guys" in the world, but true courage comes from the Lord. Does your husband exhibit the courage to take an unpopular stand, perhaps even to stand alone against evil? Is he courageous in his faith? Does he work hard to change injustice? Is he a stickler for the truth? Does he protect you or your family from the attacks of the Enemy?
Psalm 27:14 says this kind of courage comes from "waiting" on the Lord for His strength. If your budget allows, "award" your husband with a medal, trophy, framed picture of a brave knight, or some other token that represents his courage as a man of God. Praise evidences of your husband's courage in protecting you, your marriage, your family, or your home. 
Day 27! . . .
I'm going to keep this simple and not let it get too wordy.  

Yes it has taken great strength at times to be encouraging.  Boy let me tell you! wink, wink.

I can completely understand that it takes courage to wait on the Lord for his guidance.  Courage and patience.

It is far too easy to "REACT" to certain things in life... the true test is holding your tongue and your thoughts, and waiting for the right message to inspire and guide you.

I am thankful for lots of blankets.
