Today's devotional spoke to the fact that even as Jesus was carrying the cross to his inevitable crucifixion and death, he held perfect posture. He composed Himself with humbleness, compassion, selflessness, patience and unconditional love all the while feeling pain and knowing His destiny.
I loved how Jennifer says, "attitude is the posture of your heart and it is almost always expressed physically through your body language." How true is that!? I struggle with attitude issues once in a while and I felt like this devotional topic really spoke to me and reminded me that if I choose to live like Christ did with those attributes mentioned above, that I will experience better communication, true love, a home filled with peace, and create an atmosphere for intimacy with God and with my husband.
This morning Torey and I spent some time discussing the last four days' devotional topics and scriptures as well as challenges. He said that he has noticed a change in my overall happiness and compassion. He sees God working through me and I feel it is changing the dynamic in our home. I hope to continue to build the light that God has lit within me as mentioned in Day 9's devotional on being a good wife.
Today's challenge on making myself more aware of my attitude expressed through my body language will be a true challenge for me. I'm often not aware of my effect on my husband and my family when I'm upset, but I will be diligent and try my best to make myself aware. (I'll be praying about this one too.)
What did you ladies find are positive and negative examples of postures expressed towards your husbands?
