by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Thirty-Six Years of Marriage
Editor’s note: Apparently Lori and Ken just celebrated their anniversary and Lori waxed on about what she’s learned in that time between asking her readers to send photos of them kissing their spouses. Warning, there’s two photos of Lori and Ken kissing on the blog. But, just like the flip flopping Lori does in her book ‘The Power of the Transformed Wife’ she stresses the need to show love to your husband and then turns around and tells you to deny all negative emotions, hold your feelings in check. Can she not see how impossible and toxic it is to just allow only one set of emotions?
Contrary to the popular opinion that husbands need respect way more than they need love, no, they need love just as much or more. Why would God tell us that the greatest commandment was to love Him and others as we love ourselves if men didn’t need love? Love is the greatest thing to build a marriage upon. Memorize 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. This is the definition of love. The Lord tells older women to teach younger women from Titus 2:4 to love their husband so love him deeply. Love him for who is and that he is a gift the Lord has given you. Tell him you love him often. Show him you love him by smiling every time you see him. Laugh with him and enjoy him. Enjoy your time of intimacy with him and have it as often as he wants. This helps keep him close to you.
Don’t allow your feelings and emotions to rule your life. Be in the Word consistently and allow it to rule your life and actions. Take every thought captive to the obedience of the Lord. Be kind and a blessing to your husband. Don’t make a mountain out of a mole hill by dwelling on it for a long time and getting angrier and angrier, then blasting him with it. No, keep giving it to the Lord and every time a negative thought
