Grace Moments Devotions - January 19, 2017

January 19

Crabgrass

Dear Lord, I don’t thank you enough for my husband. Come to think of it, I don’t thank him enough either. He brings a lot of stability into my often turbulent life. I know I take him for granted. I often get upset, and then I see with such clarity all his faults, faults I just can’t seem to forget. When I’m angry, all my past irritations come flooding back and just keep accumulating.

Lord, I need your forgiveness and your help. Help me let go of all my past guilt and anger. I need to listen to your description of a happy home: “Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house” (Psalm 128:3). Help my husband see me as a beautiful and fruitful vine, not constant crabgrass taking over every room of the house.

Bless my husband today. Help him find fulfillment in his work. Help him feel respected, both in his workplace and especially in our home. Help him be the spiritual leader I want to see in our family, and help me to be more patient when I don’t get what I want as fast as I want. Help me to explain clearly what I need from him, and give me the grace to dial in to his needs as well.

I want to thank you today for my husband. And thank him.
