Have you ever done that same thing to your spouse? Let's look at this verse.....
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. ~ Ephesians 4:29I love this verse, because not only does it build up the one we are speaking about, but also ministers grace to whomever hears it. So as I am speaking good things, edifying things, about my husband, grace is being ministered to me as well.....that is awesome!
Let me point out that when we seek Godly counsel because we are looking for ways to heal the relationship is very different than sitting around discussing our husbands faults, ways that he has failed, or how he has caused us pain. It is important when we are facing big trials in our relationship to remember this, but it is also equally important when we looking at those small things that seem to get under our skin at times. We are human, our husbands too, and we make mistakes. Today you may be walking tall, everything going your way, life is good, but tomorrow could be a different story. And should we fall, we will be looking for grace and redemption to pull us back up.
