Whenever your husband walks in the door after a long day of work, what is the first thing that you say to him? There is a good chance that it’s, ‘How was your day?’ Then he probably says, ‘fine’ and you all continue about your evening.
This kind of conversation is typical. It’s expected. And I don’t really know if it’s helpful. It’s more like just going through the motions. But I don’t want a life that just goes through the motions, I want an extraordinary life. One that is full of interesting conversation and I want an exceptional relationship with my husband.
And I think I’ve found the secret to having just that: communication! I’m sure you saw that one coming. But if not, let’s think about it for a minute. If we aren’t communicating then we don’t know that the other person is thinking. We are not mind readers so we have to open up and talk to one another!
So instead of saying, ‘How was your day?’ let’s start having meaningful conversations together.
Not sure where to start? Here are 5 things that I believe that you should say to your husband every day. Use these to start meaningful conversations and stop trying to be a mind reader!
Do you know how much I love you?
Or say ‘I love you,’ ‘I adore you,’ ‘You are my everything,’ or any other mushy phrase that comes to mind! Life is short. Never miss a chance to tell your husband how much you love him!
I’m proud of you.
A little bit of confidence goes a long way. A husband’s job is not easy as he is your spiritual leader, head of your home, and best friend. Let him know that he is doing a good job.
What do you need from me?
You are not your husband’s maid, but you are his helper. You are a team and whenever he loves and respects you, you return that by partnering with him to bring glory to God together.
You’ll never know what he needs if you don’t ask! Also it’s ok to tell your husband what you need from him because he might not pick up on what you need if you don’t tell him. You are not a mind reader and don’t expect him to be either!
We live in a world where it’s all about me, me, me and we always want more, more more. But if you have God as the Savior of your life and a family that loves you then you have all you need. Thank your husband for all that he has done for you each day!
How can I pray for you?
I believe that prayer is the most important part of my day. I know from personal experience that my day is better whenever I begin it with prayer. Pray with your husband and pray for him. Ask him how you can pray for him and bring his burdens to the Lord for him. Make time with God your main priority and let God fight your battles for you.
