Our husbands often have an unusual perspective on things, an odd way of processing information, a strange way of responding to our comments…from our female perspective.
What was he thinking? How did he come up with that? How does he always manage to say the "wrong" thing?
Our real problem: We forget our husbands aren’t women!! We get frustrated with our differences instead of embracing them.
There's nothing wrong with wanting female feedback. We just need to remember we won't get it from our husbands. That's why we need girlfriends!*
Our husbands will never think and act and understand things exactly the way we do. God designed them that way. It took me a while to grasp this truth (and I still need to remind myself of it occasionally). But the fact is this: I AM SO GLAD MY HUSBAND IS A MAN! I'm sure you feel the same about yours.
So, when the masculine mind confuses, frustrates, perplexes, and annoys us, we can remember that it also intrigues, guides, inspires, and excites us.
Thank you, Lord, for creating male and female. Thank you for the unique and sometimes ‘illogical’ differences between us. Help my husband enjoy my differences, and help me enjoy his!
So God created human beings in his own image.
In the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
Genesis 1:27, NLT
*Titus 2 encourages us to have female relationships.
