How am I currently encouraging those around me? Specifically, how am I encouraging my husband? And how can I encourage him more/better?
It's not uncommon to get irritated, annoyed, etc at a spouse's little quirks. To be frustrated at the same ol' flaw. To say, "How can you still do this even though you know it annoys me so much?" But why not turn that irritation into encouragement. Encouragement is so much more productive than irritation and nagging.
So I ask you ... are you encouraging those around you? If not, why not? If you are, can you encourage more? Can you replace the nagging with encouragement? Can you eliminate the frustration and substitute with prayer?
Just a quick thought for today.............
