What is in Your Heart?

Have you ever noticed how all the TV shows make dads look like bumbling idiots and the moms have it all together? Have you noticed all the jokes that make the man or husband the butt of them? Do you complain about your husband to other people? Do you have friends that do that?
There is a verse in the Bible that says that our mouth speaks from the overflow of our hearts. What is our heart full of to make us speak those things? To all you married women out there, I ask you to do one thing. Make a list of all the wonderful and positive things you can possibly think of about your husband. Don't show them to him, this is just for you. What are the things that drew you to him before you got married? It could be physical things like cute curly hair, or gorgeous eyes, but also things like gentleness, or a caring attitude.... Add to this list as you think of new things.

Then, I would ask you to read this list to yourself every day for 30 days and then once a week after that. Fill your heart with the blessings of your husband. Make opportunities to do special things for him. Leave little love notes on the mirror or in his lunch.

Then when we speak, our heart will be full of the blessings that our men truly are to us and all that other stuff will fade. Pray for your husband every day. He has a lot of responsibility on his shoulders that you will never understand. Then reach out to him as his helpmeet, friend and lover. Show him how much he means to you.
