What “log’ have you added to the fire of your marriage in the last 24 hours?
Just as you must continue to stoke a campfire to keep it burning, you must do so in marriage, and that on a daily basis.
How easy it is to take our wife for granted.
Too many relationships are built on what the husband or wife does or doesn’t do for each other.
Today, husband, take your wife by the hand, look her in the eye, and share with her the reasons why you love her. Do not mention any of her actions, what she does or does not do. Share from your heart her inward qualities, her character traits.
“Sweetheart, I love you because you are . . . .”
Find a quiet place to be alone. Take your time. Be real. Enjoy the moment. Confess sin if need be. Encourage her. Be one. No finger pointing.
Then, pray for your wife with thanksgiving acknowledging the work of God’s grace in her life in the past, the present and the days to come.
Stir the embers!!
