Equipping Christian Men for Richer Relationships

“Please comfort me.” She said. “I feel used and abused by others. Work. Traffic. Aging. Please comfort me.”

She is asking her husband to use his soothing skills.

(Here are some examples of soothing)

-Use your words-

“I’m sorry you are going through that.”

-Use your touch…..

Reach for her and stroke her.

-Use your Spirit and the Holy Spirit.

“Father, bless and encourage my bride. She is struggling today. Help her please.

-Use your eyes….

Look at her with sorrow and compassion.

-Use your tenderness …..

Slow down. Be kind and soft.

-Use your tone-

“Honey. Sweetie.”

She is asking for soothing. And, also requesting you do it like a mother comforting her child after he’s fallen.

Jesus once said. I have longed to gather you….as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings. (Loving and protecting them)

Your homework

Practice soothing your wife today.
