Delight In Your Husband!



We have mentored some unhappy couples.  We've known many people who have gotten divorced.  The sad thing is that most of these couples who are unhappy with each other and argue all the time or have gotten divorced are nice people.  One-on-one with the wife is a wonderful time spent with her.  She's a good woman.  Talking with the husband, I can tell he is a good man, also.

What happens?  Why do two nice people end up fighting and getting divorced?

They stop learning to enjoy each other.  Life is short!  It is too short to make any body's life miserable.

Take my parents, for instance.  They argued all the time when I was growing up.  They are both nice people.  Now they enjoy each other {better late than never}.  The same goes for Ken and me.  All four of us are all nice people.  We just forgot to keep enjoying each other.

I write this blog, because I want more couples to enjoy each other and stay together.  It only takes one person to stop arguing and start smiling.  Why not it be you?

I am mentoring one young woman.  She's only been married four years, but so regrets not knowing all that I am teaching her  a long time ago.  I tell her it is better now than never.  It is never too late to start enjoying your husband and having a better marriage.

Realize he isn't going to change.  Stop letting little things that he does bother you.  Start encouraging him.  Lighten up and start having fun.  Thank God for him every day!  A thankful heart accomplishes much.

I believe most couples could have a good marriage as long as they aren't married to a truly evil man or woman.  All it takes is a decision of the mind to start thinking good thoughts about the other person.  Your actions flow out from your thoughts.  Renew your mind with God's truth.

Set your mind on enjoying your husband.   Don't get offended easily or hold grudges.  Make the decision to walk in love. Decide to be joyful and not argue anymore.  Start serving each other.  This is what being truly rich really looks like...

Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.  Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Philippians 2:2,3
