Words She Needs To Hear

A while ago I did a post called Words He Needs to Hear, about showing our husband our respect through our words of affirmation. Since then, I've been thinking how important it is for us, as wives, to hear those same words of affirmation from our husbands. While normally my blog posts are directed towards wives, today this is for husbands. So wives, call your husband in the room and let him have a little look at today's blog.

As women, we often have the feeling that life is ridiculously fast. We have to wear a million different hats as life comes at us with the speed of a thousand gazelles and the chaos of a concert at the state fair. 

I want to share something with you husbands, something your wife will probably never tell you.  She fights a daily battle.  Daily, she hears voices around her saying she isn't enough.  The world throws lies at her that she tries to hard not to believe, but some of them make her question herself.  In this battle you must choose sides. You can choose to fight for her or against her. There is no middle ground, because if you are not fighting for her, in her mind you are fighting against her.

How can you help? I have a sneaking suspicion that your words of affirmation...words of beauty, truth and love...could help drown out those voices. Every wife wants to hear those words but more importantly, they need to hear them.  They crave oh so badly to hear them.  And they need to hear them from you, the one their heart desires!

Each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. 
Ephesians 5:33
