Love your husband like no one else:

I am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband. I have not always appreciated all the goodness that is in my husband. Marriage is such a wonderful gift from the Lord. Just like our children, it is to be nurtured and cherished. “For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother and be joined to his wife and they shall become one (Gen. 2:24).

I don’t know about you, but “becoming one” has been my hardest part. We both walked into this relationship with a lot of “one-ness” instead of “joint- ness”. Over the years I’ve had to let the Lord transform me inside out. In the beginning I didn’t know how to love my husband the way he needed to be loved. I found it hard to give him the one thing he desired the most: Respect! Yes, respect is a big one for men. “Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband” (Eph. 5:33).

My marriage has gotten stronger over the years due to the working of the Holy Spirit in our lives. As I’ve grown in my walk, my husband has also grown in areas of his life. Remember our husbands weren’t given to us to fulfill every desire we have – God is the only one who can fill that tall order. So, let your husband off the hook. Let your husband be the man he was called to be, as you love and support him. Believe me; I’ve tried to change my husband through out the years. It doesn’t work! Remember God’s way works!

And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make a helper suitable for him. (Gen. 2:18)
