This week my husband and I are sharing our story on the Revive Our Hearts radio program, I encourage you to listen in as we talk with Nancy Leigh DeMoss about the powerful work God did in our lives. Consider inviting your husband to sit down with you to view our marriage video and listen to the program at some point this week. It might generate some insightful discussion.
Your husband may relate to some of the things he hears from my husband. If he’s willing to watch the video or listen to the radio program (you can read the transcript or listen online) he might open up to you and share his thoughts on where your marriage is. Be prepared, you might not like some of what you hear.
If you do plan to make this offer to your man, let me encourage you to first:
Ask the Lord to prepare you for your husband’s response. Please don’t pressure him. Ask the Father to give you humility and grace to respond well if your husband rejects your offer. This might be something he’s open to do at a later time and you can always pull up the program from the archives and listen when it works for him. If your husband is willing to check out the video or radio program, ask the Spirit to be at work as the two of you listen to our story.
Wait quietly for your husband and allow him to react and share his thoughts after hearing our story. Don’t argue, shift blame to him, or justify yourself, if he shares things that you’ve done that he sees as contributing to your marital problems. Allow him to share freely. Be open and teachable.
If you can relate to what I’ve shared as a wife, let him know. If you’ve been guilty of treating him disrespectfully or not supporting his leadership, ask his forgiveness.
♥ INVITE INTIMACY
Let your man know you are willing to work on areas where you see you’ve been wrong. Ask him if he will be willing to help you by praying for you.
