A Wife’s Superpower


What a beautiful reading from Genesis at Mass this morning. This part got me thinking:


“That is why a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife,

and the two of them become one flesh.”


Our husbands often grow up with false beliefs about themselves. Some grow up thinking they are never good enough, strong enough, handsome or capable enough. That they are somehow not loveable or worthy of our love and affection. Sometimes these lies come from their parents, other people in their lives, or a trauma they’ve endured. Reguardless, it’s hard for anyone to be unaffected by negative words or actions.


But our love for them can break through old thoughts and beliefs. We know our men, inside and out. We are “bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh”. And with that power of knowledge of intimacy, we can shatter the lies of how they used to see themselves and show them how God sees them. So our words and actions wield a very specific power: We are messengers of God’s love and mercy and truth to our husbands hearts, souls, identities.


Our husbands are called to leave their mothers and fathers (and whatever lies they may have believed about their worth) and cling to their wives and the two of them become one. 𝙃𝙤𝙬 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙨𝙚𝙚 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙝𝙪𝙨𝙗𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙗𝙚𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙚𝙨 𝙝𝙤𝙬 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙝𝙪𝙨𝙗𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙨𝙚𝙚𝙨 𝙝𝙞𝙢𝙨𝙚𝙡𝙛.


My challenge for you today is to spend some time thinking about why you love your husband, the more specific, the better. AND I WANT YOU TO TELL HIM. Tell him all the reasons you love him. Tell him hes cute and you like his butt. Tell him you are proud of him and all the work he does. Tell him why your children are blessed to have him as a father. Tell him everything.

You have a superpower, you know. Use it wisely.



If you accept my challenge, leave a ❤️ in the comments below. Praying for you all today!
