but today as I read through Proverbs 3 , verse 7 stuck out.
The Bible tells us that we are not to be wise in our own eyes. See our
vision in this life is limited. We do not see the whole picture, only God does.
There are days I struggle with letting the Spirit lead me through my day.
The Flesh gets the best of me and I flounder trying to analyze "why".
We need to seek God dear friends. Satan will throw his fiery darts at us.
God has a plan but he sees the whole plan.....not just the small pathway.
May we remember today to 'walk in the spirit' and let God be our guide.

How To Encourage Your Husband To Better Leaders
*Learn how to disagree or appeal to your husband in a respectful way.
* Allow your husband to make mistakes without making him dread your reaction or correction. Never make him feel inadequate or stupid.
*Develop good communication skills, and see yourself as your husband's helper.
*Be concerned enough to ask if he has a preference and then honor it.
* Express admiration and respect for good character traits.
* Cheerfully follow your husband.
* Realize your need for your husband. Value his opinions and leadership.
*Encourage leadership in other areas of daily life (sports, church,family)
*Quietly withdraw rather than push or take over.
