I’ve been thinking that we wives do not trust our husband’s hearts enough.
I was reminded of this this morning when I was trying to push my idea on Timothy of what I thought he should do in a certain circumstance. I was not happy about the fact that he didn’t think my idea was the right one, and I pushed him and badgered him until he had no choice but to say, “enough”.
How many times do we push our husbands and try to mold them into our idea of “right”? Why can’t we accept the fact that he is a man, who usually knows the best way for himself to go about solving issues? Why do we have the need to be right? We are married to good willed men, who try their best to seek God’s will and act accordingly.
I know that it is hard to not say anything when we feel they should act a certain way, but a good resolution, and I know it is simple, but not easy, is to stop trying to make our husbands resemble us. We married MEN.
They will act, think, make decisions, work, deal with the children, etc., different than we do. That is how God made them. Let’s be grateful that they are not like us. They really are amazing!
We need to trust their hearts and know that they are in the right place. Not wrong, just different.
