Many times we see in the Bible over and over again people stepping out of their comfort zones to do what God has lead them to do. It is in those moments we realize that God is in complete control. It is also in those moments that those people who stepped out of their comfort zones proved to others how much they loved God.
As you have heard many times, I am sure, my dear husband is a reserved quiet man. It takes what seems like ages for him to actually talk to others. At family functions you can almost always find him in the kiddy section playing with the little ones or leaning in a corner somewhere. It is not that he doesn’t love people or have a passion to get to know others but he is more of an observer. For Christmas this year I had gone through a “people just don’t go caroling” like the used to stage. I mean really no one ever goes Christmas caroling. Anyway , the Sunday before Christmas our preacher announced that the whole church was invited to go Christmas caroling to a couple of retirement homes in our area. My heart did flips that would be simply amazing and then my heart dropped. This caroling was to take place the same night as my husband’s family Christmas function. Once again no caroling for me this year 🙁 On the way home however I was informed by my husband that as a family we were ALL going caroling. He called his mom and informed her we would be a bit late for the Christmas function but that we would be there as soon as we could. My heart again was able to do flips.
Now it wasn’t the fact that I was going caroling that made my heart sing (although it did make me extremely excited) it was the fact that my husband was willing to step out of his comfort zone to do something that would please me. It warmed my heart singing him pass out goodie bags and singing to those he didn’t even know. All because he knew it would make me happy. On the way home he informed me that he had a blast. The kids loved it and for all of us it created a lasting memory.
We as wives need to do the same. Being really to step out of our comfort zones just to please our husbands just a tad. Maybe your husband is into sports and would really like to take you to a game. What harm is there to go to that game. After all it is giving you two time to spend together. I am sure if we were to really sit down and think about it we would find that there are tons of things our husbands would like but we keep refusing just because we were not comfortable. It is however when we do so that we are in fact showing our husbands how much we love them.
Try this week to do one thing that your husband has wanted you to do but you have refused because it would make you a tad uncomfortable. Be sure to come back here or on the fan page and tell us what you did. Or feel free to share your ideas of what you can do this week.
Until Next Time Just Keep Soaring 4 Him,
