Learning to Love Our Husbands


HERE COMES THE BRIDE

If you are about to get married, newly married, or been married a while there are ways you can learn how to truly love your husband. We are called to love our husbands. We are called to respect, honor, and obey our husbands.

If I could go back to the first few years of being married,  I would have done a few things differently.  First of all, I wish I truly understood the key role that Scripture should have played in my marriage to my husband. Instead of harboring bitterness and anger many times, I could have learned the power of forgiveness.

Instead of defending myself because “I ought to be heard and my opinion matters, too,” I should have learned the power of choosing my battles and letting things go. However, instead of letting things go, I let things grow and fester.

BUT MY FEELINGS ARE HURT

Slowly over time, I became a nag, unfeminine in my actions during weak moments, and many times I allowed pride to take over my heart.

Pride is glorified in our society. We are told to ‘protect’ ourselves and guard our feelings.  Our pride deceives us into thinking that we are ‘better than the other’ and that our feelings are more important.  Pride can also cause us to become arrogant in our actions. The opposite of pride is humility.  As Christians, especially in marriage, we are called to be humble to one another.

THERE IS NO HOPE

There were times that I became unkind, resentful, and felt hopeless. I would feel hopeless because my husband just “would just not change” into the husband I needed him to be.

However, I have learned so much and am so thankful for the endless grace of our Lord because I was given many opportunities to change, repent, and grow as a wife.

Instead of me trying to change my husband into what I needed. I learned how to love him the way he was created.  I am not saying that he is perfect because we all have tendencies to sin and give into the flesh. However, I have learned to love him the way he is. Most importantly, I have learned to use Scripture as my guidebook for how to love my husband and my role as a wife in marriage.

I HAVE TO DO WHAT?

You can learn to love, honor, and respect your husband the way we are advised in the Bible.  Scripture provides many opportunities for husbands and wives for instructions on marriage.  The confines of the blog do not permit me to list every single verse related to marriage and love, the following five are a good start for wives to meditate on pray about.
