He is Jealous for Me.

Written Oct 31, 2010.
Saved as a draft for way too long.

I am not jealous.
I have heard wives be envious of other men that were not their husbands.
I have heard this can be a temptation in marriage.

I have to say…
(And let me preface… I know, we’ve ONLY been married 10 months)
I do not envy in this way.

Not because I get butterflies when I see my husband’s smile. Not because he makes me weak in the knees…

But because,
My husband is honest & vulnerable with me.
My husband prays for me daily.
He prays for our daughter.
He praises God for so many things, being thankful for me, daily.
He helps me & is thoughtful.
He works hard to provide for his family as well as to create things he’s proud to have done.
He listens to me, even when I’m unable to verbalize what’s on my heart.
He reminds me that this love he has for me is not his, but that of my true bridegroom, Jesus.
He is purposeful with his actions.
He asks questions & seeks truth.
He pursues the best path for his family.
He has patience & grace with me in unimaginable ways.

He pushes through all of my impossibilities to show me that I’m worth unconditionally loving, and that that’s possible through Jesus.

He touches me in loving ways, tenderly expressing his affection for me.
He is intentional about making me smile & laugh as though it is the work of his day, the work of his life.

He plays this song for me on the guitar every night before bed:

  1. so funny, I have been singing this song for the last hour or so as I play on the computer and read your blog. Imagine my surprise when I come across it here. What a great message to go to sleep to. “Oh how He love us”
