Every tongue..... including my own.
A situation occurred over the weekend with my husband and I and it came down to my husband blurting out.... "I will not be judged by anyone!" That statement really struck me and stuck with me because he is right, he will not and should not be judged by anyone. Who are we to cast a judgement on him? (The people in his life) Are we all perfect, do we walk with God and live a Godly life all the time? I know I don't. I feel as if because of our past, our separation earlier this year, I found myself judging his choices and judging how he handled his choices during and after that time.
The bible says:
"Conduct of their wives, when they see your respectful and pure conduct." Passing judgment on my hubby either in words, actions or looks does not honor him and show him my respect for him. Now, some will say respect has to be earned and I get that but I feel that by showing the respect I will get the respect as well.... my other option is what? To judge him, put him down, criticize him and leave the door open for Satan to push someone else through the door to adorn my hubby... no thanks!
I really do respect my husband, he is a good strong man. Yes, he has made mistakes in the past and yes he has hurt me but through it all he continued to strive to learn, and improve himself and you can't say that about every man in this world. My hubby could have ran from our issues, he could have just gave up and said it was too hard, he could have ran from his mistakes and thought it easier to just put them behind him... but instead he admitted he was wrong and he opened to door to improve himself, our relationship wit God and our relationship with each other.... that is strength.
After our situation this weekend I made sure to reach out to my hubby and share with him how I was feeling. I sent him this text:
