The Husband Challenge Day 19



Day Nineteen

Read a wife's description of her beloved in Song of Solomon 5:10-16.

10 My beloved is radiant and ruddy,
outstanding among ten thousand.
11 His head is purest gold;
his hair is wavy
and black as a raven.
12 His eyes are like doves
by the water streams,
washed in milk,
mounted like jewels.
13 His cheeks are like beds of spice
yielding perfume.
His lips are like lilies
dripping with myrrh.
14 His arms are rods of gold
set with topaz.
His body is like polished ivory
decorated with lapis lazuli.
15 His legs are pillars of marble
set on bases of pure gold.
His appearance is like Lebanon,
choice as its cedars.
16 His mouth is sweetness itself;
he is altogether lovely.
This is my beloved, this is my friend,
daughters of Jerusalem.


Criticism leaves scars; but encouragement can bring healing. Remember that today as

you focus on your "30-Day Encouragement Challenge."

Almost nothing is as devastating to a man as the belief that his wife finds him repulsive.

Sadly, many women unwisely criticize their husbands' bodies.

Have you ever considered how wonderfully God designed men and women? No matter

how a man looks—by the standards of the world—a loving God designed them all, and

they are all "beautiful" in His sight. Encourage your husband today by praising his

uniqueness.

As you look over your husband's body, from the tip of his toes to his bald or bushy head,

thank God that your husband is "wonderfully made," then admire your husband verbally.

(Strong arms? Hairy chest? Firm hands? Big feet? Rugged chin? Wide shoulders?

Compassionate eyes? Broad smile?)

Pick one and tell him. You know we as women love to hear that we beautiful..and we start to feel blah when our husband's haven't told us that in a while...
Here is a secret..Husbands like to hear that too!
I am not near as smooth and sweet as the woman in Song of Solomon..but I can do a simple "Hey babe..You look very handsome today!"
