Husband Encouragement Challenge-Day 17

Day Seventeen: "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding." Prov. 9:10
Are you a wise woman? Do you open your mouth with wisdom, as Proverbs 31:26 suggests? As you continue in your 30-day challenge, remember that a wise woman encourages her husband. Is your husband a "wise man?" Does he have a godly perspective that comes from knowing God and walking with Him in obedience? Does he have a sense of purpose for his life and vision for your home? Tell him how much this means to you.
If you are not sure about your husband's vision for your home, ask him, "Honey, what do you want to accomplish with our marriage and home in the years to come?" and "How can I help you accomplish that?" If he does not have a vision, your questions may inspire him to develop one.
If your husband is not walking with God—or perhaps, does not know the Lord - you have the opportunity and responsibility to practice your faith and create a thirst for God. Thank God for giving your husband a place in his heart that only He can fill, and keep praying that he will turn to the Lord to fill that vacuum! : Dear heavenly Father, please continue to watch over my dear husband all the days of his life. I love him for the precious hopes and dreams that he has for our marriage, and our future. Eddie is a wise man, and he gets his wisdom from You Lord. Thank You for having a very special place in Your heart reserved for my sweet husband. I love You Father.

I know couples who go away at the end of each year to write down the goals they have for their marriage.
It is so important for us to be on the same page.
Keith and I are learning a lot about this now.
