Today, Sheila at To Love, Honor and Vacuum is tackling the dangerous tendency we ladies have of comparing our husbands to other men/husband’s out there (or even worse characters in romance novels and movies)
I have fallen into this trap before. Thinking how nice it would be if my hubby was more “romantic” like Jack or more “in tune with my needs” like Bob or more “outgoing” like Jim.
Hmmm, selfish much?
Because here is the thing…when we wish or daydream about our husband being someone or something other than who he is we are, in essence, telling God that He didn’t do a good enough job in choosing and creating our mate.
It is truly a matter of perspective.
When I choose to be thankful for the man God gave me I am more apt to notice the ways He is perfect for me. Trust me, not just any guy could live with me!
He is patient.
He is calm.
He is the one that holds my kite strings so I can soar yet not fly away.
He is the one that can handle my intense emotion without taking it personally.
He is the one that thinks things through before giving an answer.
He is the one who holds my heart.
He is the one that takes that privilege seriously.
God knew what He was doing when He made Mike. i know that God made him with me in mind and vice versa. I have no doubt that we were meant to be together. A team. Two becoming one and together living out God’s purpose for our lives.
Avoid the trap of the enemy that is comparison. Instead, ask God to open your eyes to the gift that lies next to you every night.
