My husband and I were eating in a restaurant last night. At one point, I looked up to see an older man with a young child in his arms. There was such delight on his face. I said to Paul, “now there’s a grandpa.” It was so sweet.
When you look at your husband, does he see delight on your face?
For some of you, yes. For others of you, this is a painful question. This is actually one of my red flag questions. When I start looking at my husband without delight, something’s wrong and I need to evaluate and make changes.
If you’re struggling to delight in your husband, remember those times in the past where you did and perhaps look at him through the eyes of memory. What can you do to rebuild what you once had? What did you do together that was so enjoyable? Ask God to show you how to delight in your husband.
Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest is my beloved among the young men. I delight to sit in his shade, and his fruit is sweet to my taste. Song of Songs 2:3 NIV
