Respect matters to him.

August 25, 2019

“However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband” Ephesians 5:33, ESV.

I come from a long history of women that are argumentative and combative. Women who are quick to speak their mind and make you feel like it’s either their way or the highway. They are sharp-tongued, and it doesn’t take much to set them off. But a lot of the women in my family are also divorced or had long relationships that ended badly. Every now and then, in my marriage, I see that same spirit try to rise up in me with my husband. Sometimes I’ve let it get the best of me, but thankfully, God has helped me learn His wisdom and learn His ways of doing things. 

My sister, here’s some wisdom… 

If your husband ever says he felt disrespected by something you said or did, listen to him. Don’t become defensive, and don’t give any excuses for your actions or reasons why. Don’t use it as an opportunity to say, “Well, I felt disrespected too when you…” Look him in the eyes with sincerity in your voice and say, “I understand that you feel disrespected by what I said. I understand you feel disrespected by what I did, and I apologize for disrespecting you,” and leave it there. 

As a woman of God, you have a decision to make every time your husband opens his heart to you. You can choose to be combative and fight with him, or you can listen to him and be understanding. You get to decide how you will respond. 

Prayer: Father God, forgive me for every time I’ve disrespected and dishonored the man you’ve placed in my life. Help me, Lord. Teach me how to be a loving and understanding wife, not a combative wife that has to get my way. Help me learn your wisdom and your way of doing things. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read James 1:19; Proverbs 31:11; Proverbs 14:1)

    Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are
    you using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired
    of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at
    options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Hello! I realize this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog such as yours take
    a lot of work? I am brand new to running a blog but
    I do write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share
    my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have
    any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it! quest bars http://j.mp/3C2tkMR quest

    Right here is the perfect web site for anybody who hopes to understand this topic.
    You understand a whole lot its almost hard to
    argue with you (not that I personally will need to?HaHa).
    You certainly put a fresh spin on a subject that has been written about for decades.

    Excellent stuff, just excellent!
