Don't Leave A Gap

When tension comes between you and your husband, it can cause a gap. Who is the one to move and fill that gap?


Tim is in the process of doing some upgrades to our backyard. By this, I mean that he has had a fence put up for our dog, and he is putting up some fencing around the deck to keep her out.

When he works on his projects, more often than not, things do not always work out the way that he envisions them. I try really hard to stay out of his way, but be there for him when he needs me.

He can be short tempered at times especially when he is hot, tired and thirsty. Throw in something not working out right, well, you get the picture.

He came up on the deck at one point and said that he was going to sit in the swing for a few minutes. Even though I was in the middle of other tasks, I felt the Holy Spirit tugging at my heart and leading me outside. I knew that what I was working on could wait and it would bolster T's mood a little.



Do you listen for the Holy Spirit? When there is tension between you and your husband, who is the one to move? Listen for that gentle nudging that the Holy Spirit gives because the one He wants to move, is you.

Ways To Show Your Husband Love 


1. Listen to him. Give him your full attention when he talks and really listen to what he has to say.

2. Touch him. Reach out and touch him as you walk by.

3. Offer a cool wash rag.  When/if he works outside, offer him a cool wash rag. You might even go as far as to wash his arms, legs face for him.

4. Sit with him. If he makes a point of telling you, "I am going to sit on the swing"  -- or something pertaining to your husband, join him.




1 Corinthians 13:4 CEV
Love is patient and kind, never jealous, boastful, proud, or rude. Love isn't selfish or quick tempered. It doesn't keep a record of wrongs that others do.

Dear Father, thank You for loving me so much. You are love. It is because You love me that I am able to show love, patience and kindness to others. Father please help my actions and words to be those of love towards my husband. Help me not to be jealous, boastful, proud, rude, selfish or quick tempered. Help me to see him through Your eyes, Father and never to be one that keeps a record of wrongs. When we face hard times, between the two of us, help me to be the first to move and fill in the gap between us. Thank You so much. In Jesus' name, Amen.
