Welcome back to our Marriage Monthly Mission. Our goal with these missions is to make little changes that will prayerfully make big differences in the atmosphere of our marriages as we pursue God’s heart and seek to glorify Him in all we do.
Each month I will check in and share with you how the previous month’s mission went in my home and invite you to check in and share in the comments how the mission went in your home.
Acknowledge God as our Father-in-Law.
This mission has impacted me more than any other. Seeing God as my Father-in-Law altered my perspective. It forces me to look at how I treat my husband in light of how I love his heavenly Father.
Marriage Monthly Mission – April 2017
Submit to our husbands’ leading.
“When I rely on my husband to lead, he relies on God to learn how.” Jen Weaver, A Wife’s Secret to Happiness: Receiving, Honoring, & Celebrating God’s Role for You in Your Marriage
Submitting to Tim’s leading doesn’t come naturally. I love going my own way at my own pace.
This is best illustrated at the mall. Seeing a new display at Bath & Body Works sets my heart pounding and my feet walking. My senses heighten at just the sight of Yankee Candle. Can’t miss the samples at Teavana. If it’s just me I dart to my next favorite store.
But being at the mall with Tim means hands holding and walking at his pace. The benefit to me is we get to experience it all together. Well, sometimes he gets impatient of my sniffing and testing and waits on a bench outside the store. But we walk to the next store together. : )Marriage Monthly Mission: Submit to our husbands' leading.Click To Tweet
