30 Day Husband Encouragement Challenge: Day 25

Seek peace, and pursue it. (Ps. 34:14b)

You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. (Isa. 26:3)

Before you consider whether these verses describe your husband, consider your own presence in the home. Do you promote an atmosphere of peace, or do critical words often flow from your mouth? Do you struggle with anger? If so, before you continue with your Encouragement Challenge, confess these sinful habits to the Lord, and determine to speak words of peace to your family today.

Does your husband bring an atmosphere of peace into your home? Is his presence a calming influence? Does he bring music, entertainment, books or people into your home that build a sense of serenity? Let him know how much you appreciate this wonderful quality, and support his choices.

If, on the other hand, he is quickly angered or he creates chaos rather than calm, ask God to give you an abundance of the kind of peace that will speak to his heart. Be patient and loving. Create an inviting atmosphere of peace, as much as possible.

  1. My favorite cake is a German chocolate pound cake. No icing…just a bundt pound cake. My mom bakes it, wraps it in foil, slips it in a large ziploc bag and mails it, padded with lots of tissue paper or paper towels. 🙂 It’s been my favorite birthday cake since I was a little girl – I was always the weird kid that didn’t want a store bought icing cake. I wanted my mom’s pound cake. LOL Now at 44, it’s still my all-time favorite cake. And she’s an amazing mom for shipping it every year. This year she actually had the nerve to ask what I wanted. “Huh? A German chocolate pound cake. Duh.” LOL

    Merry Christmas!!

  2. That’s very sweet of your mom to send you the German chocolate pound cake for your birthday, Cheryl. My dad, even if he’s very low on money, always mails presents for me for my birthday and Christmas. He mails Christmas presents to my husband and kids too. It is very sweet of him. I don’t think I told him that, but I think I will next time I talk to him.

    I really like this 30 day Husband Encouragement Challenge.
