31 Days of Prayer, Angie Ryg, Family Matters, Dr. Tim Kimmel, Communication

Communication

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”

Ephesians 4:29

 

Communication.  Most people think that it is all about talking. God shows that the listening part is what is important. One night, I was at a party and I was talking with another guest. The other person talked almost the whole time we were together.  When she left, she told the hostess that I was so approachable and kind.  She said I was a great communicator!

 

When your spouse has something to share, be slow to correct or interrupt with what you think is the better way. God created us to be unique so that we can complement each other with our different ideas, not beg, whine, or shout in order to get our point across.

 

Pray that you may continue to make listening more important than talking in your relationship.  Pray that you be available for when your spouse does want to share.  That might mean staying up late or making a special date on the weekend for each other. Pray that God will make you and your spouse great communicators by being great listeners.

Angie has been described as the “fun sister next door.” And like a real sister, she will make you laugh as well as encourage you to drink deeper from the well of God’s grace. She is the author of \”Clutter Free Simplicity\”. Her book, which can be found on Amazon, encourages women to clear the clutter in their hearts and homes by focusing on what is really important – their daily walk with Jesus. Although she loves connecting with women and writing on her blog at Finding Joy In Everyday MOMents, one of Angie’s most important ministries is being a wife to her childhood sweetheart and mama to one princess and three princes. They enjoy family movie nights, long car trips, and acting out the TV show Chopped. Their house may be chaotic at times, but it is full of love. You can connect with Angie on Facebook or Twitter.
