Your Song, His Song

“For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance as our way of life.” [Ephesians 2:10 Berean Study Bible]

One of the things we share when we talk is that each of us has a song given to us by God. We also have a deep desire to sing our song, and it’s a horrible thing when someone goes to their grave with their music still in them.

My Generous Husband post for today – She’s Got Song! – starts with the above, then tells men they have an important role in helping their wife find, rehearse, and sing the song God has given them. I considered writing here to encourage all of you to know you have a song and work to find and sing it. While that’s a valid and important message, I’m not going there. Instead, I want to encourage you to help your husband with his song.

Yes, I know he probably doesn’t have it as bad as you do, but he doesn’t have it easy. The world opposes all of us, and it opposes those who follow Jesus even more so. Beyond that, we’re easily distracted, discouraged, and derailed by life.

God has given your husband a song to sing, and he can’t be happy if he’s not working towards that goal. When our song gets stuck deep inside us it makes us sick emotionally and spiritually. It may make us sick physically too. To numb the pain, we turn to addictions or empty time fillers. Life stops mattering and we just trudge along hopeless and joyless.

Encouraging your husband to find and sing his song is one of the most loving things you can do for him. It’s also a powerful way to improve your marriage.

I love the thought that we all have a song to sing. A flourishing marriage finds nothing about this threatening. “You lift me up to be more than I could be,” just some lyrics I heard yesterday that seem very appropriate.

@Bonny @OysterBed7 – exactly what marriage should be – both of us helping the other be more than we could be seperately.
