Blessing Your Marriage

Are you protecting your marriage?  Remember that Devil, who prowls around looking for someone to devour?  Marriages are his prime target.  He'll use whatever device available to him to put cracks in your marriage where he can attack.  It starts small, unnoticeable.  But soon, it develops into something much bigger.  Doubts, unhappiness, anger, resentment, bitterness.  Most times you don't even know where it came from.

Your marriage is a living relationship that needs your time and attention.  It cannot survive on its own.  Would you take some time today to infuse your marriage with some new energy?  Here are some ideas:

~When your husband arrives home from work today, be the first to greet him at the door with a hug and kiss.

~Ask your husband if you can cook him his favorite meal this week.

~Write your husband a love note and place it somewhere he will find it: in his lunch, on his pillow, in a book he is reading, in his Bible

~Be mindful of words that tear him down.  Use some affirming words today that will encourage him.

~Thank him for the hard work he does to provide for your family.

~Encourage him to partake in outside activities with friends.

~And most importantly, give your marriage to God to watch over and protect.  Pray for your husband each day.

Ladies, your marriage is precious and needs constant attention.  Don't let it wither away to a hollow relationship with a roommate.

Why is it so important to me to convey this to you?  Visit me again tomorrow as I share with you how I learned the hard way.
