Husband Encouragement Challenge-Day 8

Day Eight:
How are you doing with the "30-Day Encouragement Challenge"? In case you've forgotten, here's the challenge:

You can't say anything negative about your husband . . . to your husband . . . or to anyone else, about your husband.
Say something that you admire or appreciate about your husband. . . to your husband . . . and to someone else, about your husband!
". . . but who can find a faithful man?" Prov. 20:6b

Faithfulness is a wonderful, but rare quality today, especially in regard to marriage. Do you understand how important this quality is? Your challenge is to continue to root out all negative speaking, and plant seeds of encouragement instead. You may be amazed at what will grow.

Contemporary culture often entices men to be unfaithful to their wedding vows and spiritual commitments. Appreciate your husband's faithfulness—how he is loyal to you. Let him know that you are glad he has "stick-to-it-iveness" in your marriage.

Appreciate his faithfulness to God. (If you have an unfaithful husband, this is a difficult area for you. Pray, speak the truth in love, remain faithful yourself, and discover ways to encourage faithfulness in your mate. The Bible says that husbands may ". . . be won by the conduct of their wives" [1 Pet. 3:1]. You may also want to seek counsel from a mature, godly individual or couple.) : I am so thankful to have a very faithful, and loving husband. I know he would never be unfaithful to our wedding vows, he is 100% loyal. Please bless my husband for his faithful heart dear Lord.

Currently walking painfuly beside a friend with an unfaithful husband THIS is NOT a difficult thing for me to appreciate and I have told him already multiple times how grateful I am!

Faithfulness is marriage is a HUGE thing. It makes me mad at how hard satan consistently works to lead our men astray. One day he will pay.
I am thankful for my man and I know you are too.
I will continue to pray for the protection of his mind and eyes.
