On this episode of the Speak Life Podcast I share some thoughts I call “Exposing the Secrets of A Happily Married Man”
You can get the Kindle version here http://a.co/diLX7mM its not a pretty book, but all the text I spoke can be found there if you want it.
In our Bible reading, we continue with the story of Joseph of Genesis.
Please leave a review in Apple Podcast for the show.

1 Peter 3:7
You husbands in the same way, live with your wives in an understanding way, as with someone weaker, since she is a woman; and show her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered.
To sum up, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit;
Thank You Lord for the gift of my dear wife.
Help me to be the husband that You would have me be – to encourage her and love her as Christ loved the church and to think of her needs and wishes before my own.
Let me, make me, be a encouragement in her life and her covering of protection from the evils of this world. Help me to be sensitive to her needs – knowing that I have often not realized that some of my actions and attitudes have come across as uncaring….
Father, You are love. We are not. Help us to remember that it’s not our job to get it right all of the time. We are created in Your image but we are not You and cannot love, or receive love, perfectly. Bless our marriages with a camaraderie of seeking You above each other, in trust that You hear us, love us, and are capable of the impossible.
Lord, teach me to be a good husband – a man that is prepared to lead and to listen – a man that is prepared to carry out my duties, both wisely and lovingly – for I desire to take on the role that You have ordained for me in our marriage, in a manner that is well-pleasing in Your sight, in Jesus name I pray, Amen.
