7 Risky Questions Every Wife Needs to Ask

Am I willing to change my attitude?

The most important prayer in the world is just two words long:  “Thank you.”  We wives need an attitude change.  Griping goes out, gratitude comes in!  Wouldn’t you rather be known as a thankful wife instead of a griping, grumbling, venting one?  I would.  So I went on a hunt to discover ways to grow in gratitude.

First, I wanted to grow in God Gratitude.  I burned Psalm 92:1-2 into my mind and heart.  “It is good to give thanks to the Lord and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; to declare Your loving-kindness in the morning and Your faithfulness by night.”  Before I got out of bed in the morning, I thanked God for His unfailing love to me.  At night I thanked Him specifically for His faithfulness to me throughout that day.  I got excited about thanking God every morning and night.

Second, I wanted to grow in Husband Gratitude.  I bought myself a “Thankful Journal” and once a week I wrote what I was thankful for in this man I live with.  As I wrote down my “thankfuls,” I was surprised how long the list grew.    As my list grew, so did my heart of gratitude.  My attitude changed.  Yours can too!
