Men, Thank GOD Daily For Your Wife
by Rich Allcorn
Sometimes in life things don’t always go the way we think they’re going to. You might be rocking along there and fully expecting a particular situation to go a certain way, and then all of a sudden it changes!
Change is not always bad, but sometimes is very good! Sometimes God is making changes to put you in a better situation, and the experience from the last situation is what you carry with you to help you excel in the new one! But we don’t always see it that way… And that’s why God places people in our lives, to help us, to encourage us, and to lift us up so that we can again fly and soar with the Eagles and be successful.
There is nothing quite as bad as having a major disappointment in your life, having to deal with your own feelings over it and then figuring out ways to overcome it, and then you see the eyes, and you hear the disappointment in the voices, of the very ones who were counting on you ... to knock it out of the park!
It is in times like those that you will come to know the true meaning of what it’s like to have God restore your faith, your courage, and your hope. And it is in those times that you truly discover the value of a good helpmate in life!
Men often go out and work hard to fulfill the role of champions! They are usually the breadwinners, the ones that are to go out and conquer the beast, and come home with the feast! But this is not always easy for a man, even though he will never show it. On the roof, intimidating exterior, the man works hard to keep up the image of being a conqueror, a champion that cannot be defeated! But inside, sometimes that same man deals with fears, concerns, and disappointments.
And when his courage begins to wane, that is when the help of a loving wife and a faith filled helpmate is the best thing that could ever have to help them make it!
A man who is seen failure in serval attempts at something, will begin to look at him self as a failure, and often times will be tempted to quit. But the love and support of a wife can bring encouragement the breeze the breath of life back into an otherwise hope a situation, just by encouraging her man, lifting him up, and reminding him who he is in Christ.
Men, if you have a woman like this in your life, the best thing you can do is thank God “daily“ for that someone who believes in you, and for that someone who will lift you up, even when they’re also disappointed at your failures! And remember to pray daily, and thank God for that someone who will let you know, when all the rest of the world thinks you’re a failure, a loser, and going nowhere, that your helpmate still believes in you, and is there to help you stand up, and go out once again, and win!
