Grateful For My Marriage { Words Of Life }

Luke & Ashley Photography

Words are powerful.  One word can breath healing.  One word can turn a not so good day into something better.   Words can be life.

Words also have the opposite effect as well.  They can tear down.  They can cause division.  One word can stand the test of time from childhood into the adult years defining that individual.

Words are powerful.

I am constantly reminded how I need to use my words.  When I speak… I choose life or death.

In the early years of my marriage I spoke what was on my mind.   Constantly.

I would tear down, criticize, and hold onto resentment.

Over time I began to realize just how much my words were affecting my marriage and my life.

Then God began to soften my heart and guide me to a more gentler approach.   Revealing  when I speak positive how not only does my relationships improve but also me on the inside improves.

As we are gearing up for our Thanksgiving Holiday I know it may sound cliche to say that I am grateful.  However, as cliche as it sounds, this time of year slows us down and reminds us how much we really do have.

And this Monday I want to focus on my marriage.  Today I am going to choose to speak life into my husband and let him know just how much I am grateful to him.  I know I can make a list of many little things.  But today I want to focus on 3.

3 Reasons I am grateful for my husband:

  1.  He is a Dreamer. – He keeps me on my toes and keeps my eyes on things ahead.  When the going gets tough and we are in the trenches it is he that keeps my head above the water reminding me of the better things coming.
  2. He always Provides–  His decision to get up each and every morning and work his job to provide for me and the kids speaks volumes to me.  He is not lazy and he will do what he has to to make sure his family is taken care of.
  3. He is my place of rest-  No matter the emotions that run through me it is he that can calm the storm within and his embrace is where I find my rest.

Today I want to encourage you to speak life into your loved ones.  Rather it be your husband/wife or significant other.  Rather it be a friend, coworker, or child.

I challenge you to choose today and everyday to Speak Life.  And share below 3 reasons why you are grateful for them!  And after sharing be sure to tell them today!
