I’ve been working on a book that I hope to finish by summer called Worthy that will explore three main “worthy” aspects of our relationship with God …
“Note Worthy” – where I’ll provide Bible study tools that will make your studies/devotional times rich and meaningful.
“Praise Worthy” – where I’ll explore how to develop a thriving worship- and prayer-life.
“Trust Worthy” – where I’ll explore how to find God’s help in times of need, and learn to yield to Him in times of challenge and testing.
Most recently, I’ve been working on the “Praise Worthy” chapter and it’s gotten me to thinking about how important praise is, not only to our relationship with God, but also to our mates. I know I feel a greater sense of acceptance, love and value from those who affirm me and do so regularly. How about you?
So with it being Valentines Day weekend, I thought what better time to challenge you to commit to a new affirmation habit in your marriage? Because I’ve discovered that …
[Tweet “Affirmation is like a muscle. If you don’t use it in marriage, it becomes flabby. #beencouraging”]
[Tweet “Are you flexing your “affirmation muscle”? #dailyaffirmations #bethatkindofcouple”]
I hope so! But if not, then allow me to give you a Valentines gift that might get you going in the right direction. I’d like to offer you my “Daily Affirmations” guide that my husband and I use to help prompt us on the many ways we can affirm one another daily. There’s an overall theme specific to each day with several ideas or ways that you can affirm your mate—stirring you to stretch and grow in this part of marriage.
I hope you’ll join my husband and me in working out those affirmation muscles so that we can be strong encouragers of our mates and grow more deeply in love with them as well.
How strong are your affirmation muscles in marriage?
What has gotten in the way of reminding your mate of his/her good qualities?
