Marriage Challenge-Day 3- Perspective

DAY 3 CHALLENGE: PERSPECTIVE
Your challenge today is to ask God to help you see your husband through HIS eyes. To look at him with the expectations of what God expects of a spiritual leader, and not the mental picture we may have in our head. To not compare him to other husbands, who we think are more spiritual, Godly, or perfect, but to pray for God to move in our husbands heart, so that he can begin to embrace his role, as spiritual leader, as well as, physical leader. To keep praying for his heart, if he is not a believer, and trusting that God is working in ways, you cannot see yet.
Going forward, seek out the Holy Spirit’s guidance, to clearly see the little ways, that God is changing your husbands heart, instead of only looking for the obvious, outward, more noticeable changes, in behavior, or actions. God may be at work in small ways, that can eventually turn into big ways, and it will be well worth the wait.
Please remember that if your husband is abusive in any way, seek immediate professional help.
