Encourage Your Spouse In Love

How does it feel to know there is someone close to you who believe so much in you, always inspiring you to put your best foot forward and believe you can achieve anything you want to?
 
 
It is such a beautiful thing to always know someone gets your back anytime, anyway. It is a wonderful feeling to know there is one person always there to cheer you on even at your lowest times.
 
To encourage is to inspire, minister hope and build courage in another person.
 
This is the kind of person we all should be to our spouses.
 
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. (Ephesians 4:29)
 
Rather than being the one to bring down your spouse with your words, I would rather you build them up with it.
 
Do you feel comfortable speaking harsh words to your spouse without feeling guilty? Imagine a third party outside saying those words to them, how will you feel?
 
Encouragement softens the heart and prepares a fertile ground in the life of the encouraged.
 
How Can Your Encourage Your Spouse?
 
1. Pray, pray and pray.
You can always pray your spouse into their best. This has nothing to do with whether they do the same or not. Stop complaining today and start praying.
 
2. Praise your spouse often.
Be his/her greatest cheerleader.
 
Husbands, how often do you compliment her looks? The hair she made during the festive season, did you even notice it at all? How about those amazing meals everyday?
 
Women, men are not allergic to compliments too. What about the nice shirt he wore this morning? All the stress he passes through just to make the family a comfortable one, have you ever appreciated that?
 
Find something to appreciate every morning about your spouse and you will find him/her at his/her best throughout the day.
 
3. Take time to listen.
Sometimes, all you need to do is just to listen. Why not be a listener, rather than the talker every time? Be interested on how your partner's day went rather than ranting about yours.
 
4. Be playful.
Your spouse is not just a random colleague /boss/neighbour etc, playing with your partner is allowed in marriage. Play, play and play. Have something to look forward to everyday. Make your home an exciting one to return to everyday and you will discover you both will be glowing.
 
5. Help your spouse spiritually.
Don't ever miss the family altar, it builds a special kind of bond between families. Pray with/for each other, study the Bible together.
Ask your spouse for whatever area he/she wants you to pray for him/her and be committed to praying till the actualisation.
 
Make your spouse your priority and be committed to motivating them to be their best all the time.
 
Shalom!
