BANDAGES FOR A BROKEN MARRIAGE (Part 2)
- Stop blaming, criticizing, or arguing.
- Commit yourself to repair it.
- Start Changing.
A.) Ask the Holy Spirit what areas you need to change to be a Godly wife.
Hebrews 13:5-6 “For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never forsake you.” That is why we can say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper, so I will not be afraid.”
B.) Listen to your husband, even if it hurts.
Most of the time they are really begging their wife to change in certain areas.
It is a privilege to find out what is in your husbands heart and mind.
Do you ignore your husband when he is trying to let you know what bothers him?
Remember that he loves you.
Out of all the girls he may have known, you are the one he chose to marry.
He married you to have fun with for the rest of his life.
1Peter 5:6 “So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and in His good time He will honor you.”
1Cor.7:4-5 “The wife gives authority over her body to her husband, and the husband also gives authority over his body to his wife. So do not deprive each other of sexual relations.”
- Treat him with love and respect.
Ephesians 5:33 “…she must respect her husband.”
Statistics show that when husbands are asked what means the most to them in their marriage, they say the need for their wives to respect them.
Husbands say that as much as sex is so important to them, respect is even more important.
John 13:34-35 “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” “By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
Ephesians 4:29 “Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.”
If you are using abusive language, you need to stop right now. It is a habit that you CAN control.
This kind of language grieves the Holy Spirit!
1Peter 4:8 “Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.”
A wife is suppose to be a soft pillow for her husband to lay his head on!
