Wish You Could Change Your Husband?

Are there things about your husband that you wish you could change? Do you understand that God made him the way he is for a reason?

Be honest, there are certain things about your husband that you wish you could change. Am I right? I have to admit, that yes, there are certain things that I have thought, "you know, if I keep doing this long enough, he is bound to change."

To Change Or To Control

I know that is a control thing and if I am completely honest here, I never thought of myself as controlling. Oh, I do not want his personality to change, but, little things like actually getting his dirty clothes into the dirty clothes bucket. Or if he takes the lid off of the garbage pail because it is too full, then go ahead and gather it up.

I am learning, yes still, even after 30 years of marriage, that we are to be accepting of one another. In marriage, as with any relationship, you are going to get on each other's nerves, step on one another's toes, etc. However, to be accepting of one another is to overlook all of that. You love your husband, warts and all as hopefully, he does you.

Romans 15:7 NLT 

Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory.

The thing that I need to remember is that just like me, T is perfectly imperfect. I need new eyes to see him the way that God sees him so I do not always see the things that gets on my nerves. I need new eyes to see the best parts of him and not get bogged down in other areas.

Show Compassion And Forgiveness 

God is the only one that will ever be able to love us unconditionally. He is love; after all. We love because He first loved us. We have the ability to show love and compassion to others because He, Himself loves us. He loves us so much that He sent Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. If you believe this to be true, then you know that your sins have been forgiven. God loves us that much. He forgave our many sins. To show our love for Him, we need to show the same forgiveness to those in our lives.

Let's Pray: 

Dear Father,  

Thank You so much for my husband. I honestly don't know where I would be without him in my life. Father, please forgive me for the times that I have tried to be controlling. Forgive me for thinking that I can change him in any way. Please give me new eyes to see him the way that You do. Help me to be as loving, accepting, forgiving, compassionate towards him as You are towards me. Thank You for loving me so much that You sent Jesus to die for me. In Jesus' name, Amen.
