Day 23- 30 Day Husband Encouragement Challenge

"Let your speech always be with grace." (Colossians 4:6a)
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 him or to anyone else. Each day, say something that you admire or appreciate about your husband . . . to him and to someone else.
"In all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works." (Titus 2:7a)
Does the "30-Day Husband Encouragement Challenge" seem like hard work? Or is it becoming a pleasant exercise in genuine Christ-likeness in your home? You are only scratching the surface of ways to encourage your mate.
Is your husband organized? Is he diligent? Is he persistent? These are all related to a pattern of personal disciplines that are worthy of your praise. Affirm him for one or more of these traits that you see in him.
Some men have not developed these qualities because they are naturally more spontaneous. You can praise his spontaneity! Perhaps God has called you alongside to help him with disciplines he has not yet developed--but this does not include nagging.
Whatever the need, you can be your husband's cheerleader, encouraging him when he wants to give up.: This challenge has been great, I am enjoying being an encouragement to my husband. I will forever be his biggest cheerleader. Go Eddie Go, woo hoo!!!
