A friend messaged me from Idaho and invited me to join her in building habits of serving our husbands with respect. The idea sprung from this blog post here - we will be holding one another accountable in focusing on one a day as well as praying the scripture over our husbands and marriage!
As I thought about this more, I grew so encouraged by her to do this. So often I read inspiring blog posts or articles. But that's it. I forget within an hour. So let's put this into action!
Will you join us in this?
Today is Choose Joy. How can we actively and very obviously choose joy to bless and respect our husbands? How can we have an attitude of gratitude, loving life to the full? In this it's not simply choosing joy but choosing against lack-of. How can we avoid moodiness and grumbling and rude remarks? How can we prevent ourselves from manipulating?
Loren is so blessed when I choose joy -- when we are bitter and angry and frustrated, we aren't very pleasant to be around. Bless your husband with joy today.
The verses to pray over your marriage: "Always be joyful." 1 Thessalonians 5:16 "Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! " Philippians 4:4
