This Week’s Marriage Challenge: Every day this week,
say something nice about your husband
to someone other than your husband.
Earlier this month I talked about the importance of trying something new and different when you are faced with situations in your marriage that you don’t like. Large or small, a little trial and error can be a good, even wise, thing.
Change, however, tends to make folks uncomfortable.
As a suggestion, give your new choice a time or number limit.
That gives you built in “time to reconsider” and it limits any possible down side of your choice. Change may still be uncomfortable, but you’ve built in limits that feel safer and saner. And it’s always OK to say, “This is not working.”
♥ I’d like to try that new position just once to see if I can be comfortable with it.
♥ Could we try this diet for a week, maybe two?
♥ Let’s pick a place in the house and use it as the “calm discussion” spot for a week.
♥ Could we try a new wake up time for the rest of the week?
Trial and error and the change it brings can be a good thing. Let a simple limit make changes safer and easier to consider.
If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies. Author Unknown
Prayer Prompt ♥ Ask God to help you set wise limits when trying something new.
