I choose to breathe life into my marriage by leaving encouraging messages for my husband on a daily basis!
Hopefully you have been on the receiving end of a powerful, encouraging word. Can you remember how it made you feel inside? Words carry life giving power that can transform the way someone views their day, their circumstances or even the value of their life and contributions to this world. Your words can make a tremendous difference! Encouraging messages and empowering affirmations are free to give and can be a treasured gift to someone that you love.
Don’t let your man fool you…even the roughest, toughest, manliest man needs to hear that he is loved, adored, respected and appreciated by his wife and family. You may think he knows your heart already and that you don’t need to tell him on a daily basis or even routinely for that matter, but guess what?
You absolutely do!
Never assume that he knows the beautiful truths that you believe about him that live in the deepest caverns of your soul. What you believe about your husband, how you feel about him, how he makes you feel, what you respect about him and what he means to your family are all things your husband needs to hear from your lips each and every day. Never keep these things hidden from him.
Shout them from the rooftops and share often!
Why Is Leaving Encouraging Messages For My Husband So Important?
The world is a noisy place to live. There are so many people and things competing for our time, attention and our affections. People are inundating us with their opinions and trying to sway us to believe, act and respond in favor of their “truth.” I never want to make assumptions in my marriage especially concerning my feelings for my man! I never want him to doubt his place in my life or his position in my heart! I want him to walk out of our home each morning feeling confident, loved, encouraged and inspired!
Satan hates marriage! He would love nothing more than to plant doubt in your relationship while he stands back and watches it grow and multiply. Doing whatever you can to safeguard your marriage against Satan and his merciless attacks is well worth the investment over time.
Building Your Husband Up Does Not Have to be Complicated
Intentional communication has always been a priority in our marriage whether it be for problem solving, daily logistics or encouragement. If we don’t make time to share what is on our mind or in our heart, we are missing out on a valuable opportunity to strengthen our marriage and our intimate bond with our husbands. Leaving encouraging messages for my husband takes only seconds each day but it pays off dividends in the overall health of our marriage.
We use a lot of words each day (especially us girls!) Can I get an AMEN? Each time we share words with the world and those that we love, we have a choice to build up or tear down. We can use our tongues to speak life or we can use them to nag, criticize and manipulate.
What will you choose to do?
When you speak life and truth from your heart, you can never say the wrong thing! Encouraging messages for my husband do not have to be complicated, fancy or lengthy. My words are meant to empower him, increase his confidence, cheer him up, comfort him, help him persevere and remind him of his worth in Jesus Christ and his value to me and our family.
Never Take Your Husband or Time for Granted
Families today are busier and more fragmented than ever before. We are running around from commitment to commitment and activity to activity. Some days, we are lucky to even brush shoulders with our spouses much less find time to share encouraging messages with one another. We tend to wear our busyness like a badge of honor but unfortunately, if we aren’t careful, all this busyness can become a barrier to heart to heart communication and connection with our spouses! Don’t let distraction and busyness become excuses for not taking the time to build up your spouse!
Time is a precious gift and one that is limited. Each moment can be made meaningful or it can be a missed opportunity. Take advantage of the time you are given, because life can certainly change in an instant.
By intentionally creating moments of connection now, you can prevent regret in the future for things left unsaid.
Besides knowing what encouraging messages to share, we need to think about how to share them! I would encourage you to get creative but don’t over complicate it! You want to actually do it and do it consistently. The goal is to find ways to incorporate these messages into your daily routines! It isn’t something that you try for a week and decide to check off your list!
My prayer is that this practice will become a regularly reciprocated rhythm of your partnership with your spouse!
