What if your husband is ungrateful and hard to please? Your model of unselfish support is a testimony to your trust in God. If your husband takes you for granted, pray the Holy Sprit will convict him of his need for appreciation. A supportive attitude attracts your husband to your heart. Trust the Lord will grow him in grace and gratitude. A woman of prayer wisely waits on God to work, without rushing ahead with sincere solutions.
"I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened..." Ephesians 1:18a
Support him when he is mad and your patient smile will make him glad. Support him when he is sick and your compassionate heart will bring quicker healing. Support him when he is successful and your unselfish celebration will cause mutual joy. Support him in his work and your loyalty to his labor will grow his feelings of significance. Above all, support him as your spiritual leader, as your validation gives him courage to continue.
As a husband you may seem self-sufficient, but you are really not a lone ranger. You are one flesh with your bride and you need her help. So, acknowledge your dependence on God and your need for your wife's support. Invite her into your hopes and fears. Be vulnerable with your emotions that are hard to express and receive her comfort and counsel. It's bad to be alone at home with your wife, but it is very, very good to have her selfless support.
"He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD." Proverbs 18:22
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thanks for loving me so that I can love and support my husband.
