As a husband, the Lord has shown me the importance of cherishing LaVerne and valuing her emotions. I Thessalonians 5:23 says; “Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Our soul refers to our mind, will and emotions. I have found that our wives need to be cherished and valued in their soul; their emotions, because how they feel is reality to them.

Husbands, you can never encourage your wife too much. And wives, your husband desperately needs your words of encouragement. Encouragement is the vitamin of the soul, bringing blessing and value to the emotions of the one you love.

This was taken from our new book; “Battle Cry for Your Marriage” coming out next week, co-written with three other couples. Already available on Amazon.
