This morning as I was getting ready I felt a nudge from the Lord. I was compelled to tell Tom how grateful I am for the way he takes care of our finances. He is faithful in this area and has been our entire marriage. And it is because he is that I sadly often fail to tell him.
I stopped what I was doing and went to his office where he was ironically paying our bills. I shared with him what was on my mind and my gratitude for never having to worry about money. I could tell the encouragement was not only appreciated, but needed.
God knew this; that’s why I was nudged. I’m grateful I took the time to listen.
This begs the question, how often have I missed opportunities like this to encourage my husband in the exact moment when he needs it?
May we all listen in and respond to those little nudges. Our marriages will be the stronger for it!
