Praying for Your Spouse: Attitude
“A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones”—(Prov. 17:22, ESV).
This. Is. My. Biggest. Struggle. I’m a planner. I like things to go as planned. That about says it all. On the other hand, my husband’s job (a dentist) is a lot of pressure and requires him to be very precise, yet his feathers are seldom ruffled. He is the calm in any storm! I am certain God gave us to each other to balance each other out! Those of us who are “oaks” are sure to be made into willows as the Lord molds us to be more like Him, and I do think He has done that in me and in our marriage.
Let’s pray for our spouse (and ourselves) to seek the Lord for His direction even if we are in the midst of making a plan. It’s important to thank the Lord for differences in our personalities and to recognize the many reasons we are good for each other and how God allows each of us to balance the other. Praying for the Lord to use us for His glory even in the character traits that we’ll probably work on for the rest of our lives is actually refreshing… because He’s given us each other to work together… for a lifetime. Thank you, Lord! We don’t have to “do it alone”! THAT is good medicine for joy!
