Amen!

I can do nothing without God.

Today, I was very frazzled at my first day back at work (I am en educational assistant). I realized that I had not taken my usual meditation time in the church before work started. I immediately had to stop, collect my thoughts and my spirit, and pray for God's guidance. Because, without Him, I go in too many directions and get nothing useful done!

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

BLESS YOU ALL. GOD IS SO GOOD TO ME, AND HE HAS BROUGHT ME
FROM ABUSE TO LIFE ABUNDANT LIFE. WITH A MAN OF GOD WHO LOVES ME FOR
WHO GOD MADE ME TO BE. SO JUST KNOW THAT GOD HAS A PLAN, IT MAY NOT BE
WHAT YOU WANT IT TO BE, BUT IF YOU STAND STILL AND OPEN YOUR SPIRIT TO HIM
HE WILL LEAD YOU, GIVE YOU THE WORDS TO SAY, SHOW YOU HOW OR WHICH WAY TO GO. THAT IS WHY I LOVE THE LORD SO MUCH. emoticon

I agree

Lord help me remember that nothing is going to happen today that you and I can't handle together.

If ignorance is bliss why aren't more people happy

AMEN,

ONE THING I HAVE LEARNED IS THAT THE MORE I UP LIFT MY HUSBAND
THE BETTER I FEEL ON THE INSIDE. GOD PLACE ME IN HIS LIFE TO BE A HELP
MEET AND YOU KNOW I AND SO THANKFUL. WE HELP BALANCE OUT ONE ANOTHER. SURE WE CAN SIT AND POINT FINGERS, BUT THE TRUTH IS GOD IS GOING TO WORK ON ME AND YOU AS HE WORKS ON OUR MATES. THE LORD HAS BLESS ME WITH A WONDERFUL HUSBAND AND WE KEEP THE LORD AS OUR FOCUS IN THIS MARRIAGE KIND WILL CHANGE THINGS, AND I KNOW THAT PRAYER WILL PULL YOU THOUGH. .

Your Encouragement May Be What He Needs
by Proverbs Wife

I truly believe that we are either building our husbands up or tearing them down.
Encouraging or discouraging.

Tearing them down can come in the form of a snide remark and building them up can be something as simple as saying, “I trust you” when there’s a decision to be made.
It’s important for me to encourage my husband. It helps build his character, his faith and his confidence.

Now please don’t get it twisted…Germaine was going to be a great guy with or without me as long as he had Christ in his life. This I know, but he’s an amazing husband, father, and friend because of what I add to his life through encouragement.
Because I encourage him he can trust me with anything from his money, to our children, to his heart.

Because I encourage him, I‘m his second most valuable source of advice.
He trusts me with his heart because he knows I will always protect it and never hurt it.
Mine is the second loudest voice he hears cheering him on in life.

I’m his second biggest cheerleader and it’s a role I cherish. The influence of a wife can be used for good or evil. I choose to use mine for good.

Your encouragement may be just what he needs!!

Are you withholding encouragement from your husband out of bitterness or resentment? It’s time to stop. You’re only killing your marriage and hurting everyone involved.

Withholding encouragement from your husband is like shooting yourself in the foot.
Decide right now if your marriage is worth fighting for and fight for it, not against it.
I don’t have the perfect marriage. Nor am I a perfect wife, but I know a God who has been able to take imperfect people and use their marriage to inspire others.
