Husband Encouragement Challenge-Day 19


Day Nineteen: Read this description of a wife's description of her beloved—Song of Solomon 5:10-16
Criticism leaves scars; but encouragement can bring healing. Remember that today as you focus on your "30-Day Encouragement Challenge." Almost nothing is as devastating to a man as the belief that his wife finds him repulsive. Sadly, many women unwisely criticize their husbands' bodies.
Have you ever considered how wonderfully God designed men and women? No matter how a man looks—by the standards of the world - a loving God designed them all, and they are all "beautiful" in His sight. Encourage your husband today by praising his uniqueness.
As you look over your husband's body, from the tip of his toes to his bald or bushy head, thank God that your husband is "wonderfully made," then admire your husband verbally. (Strong arms? Hairy chest? Firm hands? Big feet? Rugged chin? Wide shoulders? Compassionate eyes? Broad smile?): When God created Eddie, He created a beautiful masterpiece. He is wonderfully made, straight from Gods heart. I love holding hands with him, his strong and firm hands make me feel so protected. I could drown in his sexy, and sweet loving eyes. His smile not only lights up the room, but lights up my heart as well. Thank You Lord for creating my precious lovebug.

Once again words so well timed! My husband struggles to with his weight. I worry about his health. I struggle at times to keep quiet when I should. I am going to remember these words! Thank you!

Indeed, encouragement CAN be healing. In so many ways --sometimes you don't even realize it. And your words you share with us each entry ARE to be taken as encouragement from your heart.

Thanks for the compliment...it means a lot to me.

Happy Tuesday.
