1. Avoid outings with other men. An exception to this would be someone that your husband knows and trusts. Business outings also fall into this category but make sure you pay attention to how you feel during the meetings and after. God will always give you a check in your spirit. As a quick note, I've failed following this strategy many times and have learned to follow this advice. Supporting Scriptures: 1 Thessalonians 5: 19-22
19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not despise prophecies. 21 Test all things; hold fast what is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil.
2. Cut off all communication if you begin to have feelings for another man. This is a tricky one and can happen when you least expect it. Your male friends may be going through a break up and need someone to confide in. They trust you. Or they may do things that you wish your husband was doing, like listening intently to you when you talk or something like that. Don't be fooled. Anything that we want in our husbands can be prayed in. This is where patience and faith comes in. Don't you know that waiting on God to answer is much better than living in frustration over who your husband is not? Supporting Scripture: 1 John 5:14 14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
3. Get busy serving your husband. At times, marriage can seem routine and the longer you're married, it can be easy to take your mate for granted. We all do it. But just like you work to keep your relationship with God fresh, do the same with your man. What does he like to do or what is he passionate about? Can you learn to make more of his favorite dishes? Can you create more steaminess in the bedroom or around the house? (He'll triple love you for this one!) Get busy serving him. Something amazing happens when you put your husband first and take a genuine interest in him as a person, not just as a provider. Supporting Scripture: 1 John 3:18 18 My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.
