Focusing On the Good

How often do you focus on the good that your man does? If we’ll be completely honest, we would all have to answer with, not as much as I should. It can be very tempting to see all the mess ups from our husband. When it seems like one thing after another that he does wrong, we can forget all the good he does.

 

Garbage not take out again…

Clothes left on the floor again…

A mess in the kitchen again…

 

We have to stop and go to the Father in prayer. We have to ask Him to help us stop seeing only the bad. He can help us to see the good our man does. It takes more effort to look for the good things. It’s way easier to complain about what he doesn’t do right. But…

We have to remember that we’re all flawed and imperfect.

Our husband needs the mercy, just as we do. Celebrate all the good that he does because only recognizing his failures will damage your relationship. We need to remember to treat him as we want to be treated.

Father, thank You for our men. Thank You for all the good they do, but we don’t express it. Help us to look for and recognize the good, not just the flaws. Give us the strength to lean on You when all we can see is the bad. May we remember our own flaws and how You are patient with us. We desire to be a good wife and helpmate. In Jesus’ name, Amen.


 

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

Psalm 19:14
