Week 6: The Power of a Woman in Love

Your husband needs romance….just as much as you do!

Men view going out and doing things together as incredibly romantic. “Playing” with their wives makes husbands feel close, loving and intimate.

Weekly Challenge #6

It has been said that behind every great man is a great woman.  Every day look for a seed of greatness in your man and write it in the margin of your book.  Identify talents, skills, and abilities that you can affirm and ways you can support him.

Let’s memorize some scripture!  

Romans 8:37

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

Questions for Reflection

These are questions to encourage reflection and application.  Again, please do not feel limited to these questions.  Comment when and if you feel led and freely share what God is teaching you.  Most importantly, make sure you are respecting your man in your comments.

  • How can you make sure your husband is built up when he puts himself out there to do something romantic?
  • Do you make effort to “play” with your husband as you did when you were dating?
  • The changes in behavior and attitudes you have been trying to make do not become lifestyle patterns overnight.  What steps are you going to take to ensure that you do not slip back into earlier ways of thinking and acting?
  • Share the most important insight you have acquired this week.

    Good Morning Ladies,
    1 Cor 13:7 REALLY stuck me in the gut!
    Trust God always, (Ok, I got this)
    Always look for the best, (Errr, I try?!?)
    Never looks back, (EPIC FAILURE)
    But keeps going to the end. (Hope)

    As many of you guys know there have been a lot of changes around our house in the last year. New baby, I have quit work, CrAzY kiddo schedules. I have been realizing (slower than I care to admit) that I am trying to compare our relationship to what it use to be. That is not fair to my man. The amount of one on one time that we use to have just isn’t a possibility in the season we are in. So why am I always “looking back” at what we use to be able to do instead of finding new ways to make the most of our time.
    I remember on a rare date night we had while I was still pregnant with the baby T wanted to stop in at the golf store. What did I do when we went in?? Instead of still enjoying our time I sat on the bench and played on my iphone. It kills me now that I wasted that time! When we were dating I had fun just going to WalMart with him. Because we were together!!! I pray that God keeps this on my mind so I remember this next time it comes up.
    I definitely can see the changes around our house and between us that this study has brought about. And I do not feel like the changes I am making are a quick fix. But I continue to pray for all of us that we would see the role God has created us for! (And follow it!)

    Sorry if this is all scrambled. I’ve already been up for an hour. 😉

    Love it, Kacy! SO true…and you get a gold star for being the first to comment!! 🙂
    Like you, I realize how differently I respond to my man now, compared to when we were dating. I was game for anything when we dated…happy to just be with him. I realize that I am too focused on my agenda/schedule and am missing the gift that God has given me. I am thankful that God is faithfully transforming me…renewing my mind and changing the way I think. I am very aware of my inability to walk in His ways without Him. I fall flat on my face as soon as I stop clinging to Him. I’m completely dependent upon Him and it’s a great place to be…full of peace, joy, and security. He is Good!

Men want to be understood, but they’re afraid to “freak out” the women they love by confessing what is happening inside their heads."
