Teachable Thursdays… Look at Your Man….

 

IMG_3306

Alright Ladies… Are you married? How long? I bet long enough that the heart thumping has left you when you hear your man’s voice, huh?

Tonight at church I picked this book up by the recommendation of a friend, and have had a hard time putting it down… I want to type something that has really struck me, and I want to challenge you to it.

Are you in love with your husband? Not, Do you love him? I know you do. He has been around a long time, and you’re used to him. He is the father of your children. But are you in love with him? How long has it been since your heart really squeezed when you looked at him? ….. Why is it you have forgotten the things that attracted to you to him at first?……. Your husband needs to be told that you love him, that he is attractive to you. By the grace of God, I want you to start changing your thought pattern.

Tomorrow morning, get your eyes off the toaster or the baby bottles long enough to LOOK at him. Don’t you see the way his coat fits his shoulders? Look at his hands. Do you remember when just to look at his strong hands made your heart lift? Well, LOOK at him and remember. Then loose your tongue and tell him you love him. Will you ask the Lord to give you a sentimental, romantic, physical, in-love kind of love for your husband? He will do this.

Ladies, this is your first challenge! LOOK at him.

First off I want to start off by saying thank you.....it's mid-night Thursday night and I can not sleep so I thought, I had not checked Shannon's blog recently so lets see what is going on. Wow, I think I'm going to have to get that book you are reading, what a powerful challenge. I had tears in my eyes as I read it. If reading that one section you posted had that effect what kind of effect will the entire book have. How true that statement is, I've been married almost 18 years now and when is the last time I actually looked?
