Believe The Best In Them

Believe The Best In Them

As wives and mothers, so much rests on our ability to believe the absolute best in our husband and children. We are the ones that set and keep the atmosphere in our environment.  

A man that gets consistent positive affirmation from his wife has a confidence that shows clearly in his work and performance.  Speaking against your husband in any way is disrespectful, will un-motivate, and will definitely emasculate him. 

Emasculate means: to deprive a man of his role or identityWhen this occurs, eventually he will leave or quit trying altogether.

The problem is not him by the way, the problem is your fear or control and a definite lack of faith.

"Every wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down." Proverbs 14:1

"Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life." Proverbs 4:23

"Depart from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it." 
Psalm 34:14

"Life and death are in the power of the tongue..." Proverbs 18:21

"So then we pursue the things which make for peace and the building up of one another." Romans 14:19

"and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds.." Hebrews 10:24

"Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need at the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear." 
Ephesians 4:29

Softly and Tenderly Train Them

Softly and Tenderly Train Them

Life giving words and encouragement are the answer in parenting. 
GENTLY instruct children in the way they should go. CALMLY correct them, in love. What are we teaching if we loose it ourselves...or worse, label them and call names??

Listen up parents and teachers, build up children and listen to them--carefully listen. They will give you signs and red flags when you are losing their heart. My son would say things like, "You love her more" and "Your little princess" and such because his sister was compliant instead of strong-willed like he was.

So, instead of me stopping in my tracks and saying, "Noooooo way, Honey! In no way is she more loved or more valued than you are." I would mistakenly brush off his remarks. 

I wish instead of sending him to his room, I should have taken him on a walk to INTENTIONALLY cancel the lies he was hearing.

Draw near and lean into those those that are pushing back. I believe it is a test to see: How much do you love me? How valuable am I??

Unfortunately, I agreed with what the enemy (and his fear) was telling him by my actions. 

Parents I beg you to slow down, and see REALLY SEE your child. Tell him/her every stinking chance you get how special they are in your eyes and in God's.

"And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony." Colossians 3:14

Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins."  1 Peter 4:8

Magnetic Attraction

Magnetic Attraction 

When two magnets are facing the right direction the magnetic pull is so strong that they immediately attach together. When the magnets are facing the wrong way there is a strong force that literally keeps them apart no matter how hard you try.

There is a very important comparison here that is so true. In marriage, hurt and resentment cause husband and wife to be like the magnets facing the wrong way. Forgiveness will bring you back facing the right way and like the magnets, you become inseparable.

“The heart of her husband safely trusts her; so he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and not evil all the days of her life.” Proverbs 31:11-12
