treated fairly at work. He tends to think there is always something better he could be doing. When it comes down to it, he often states he would be happy if…What do I do? Do I just pray?”
Yes, just pray! I am sure that if this is a normal way of thinking for this husband, that the wife has said her piece. Knowing she has stated the obvious, there is no need to repeat, no need to NAG!
My own marriage has seen the fruit of praying for contentment. For years I have seen my husband struggle with being content. Part of this is his perfectionist side and part of it is his visionary side, yet, I knew contentment was available, so I prayed for him.
In the last year, I have seen amazing examples of contentment
come from my husband. When work was threatening to steal his joy, he would state that God was in control and he would choose to do his best as long as God has him there. When life seemed unfair he would trust the Lord to guide his best interest, while I wanted to wallow in injustice and struggled to not keep bringing up the topic. Even in his sickness, he is frustrated at times, but he
continues to come back to God’s being in control and resting in His ability to control our lives
Prayer works, not always quickly, but when God changes us, it is
REAL change. Like my husband, who is now challenging me to higher ground in an area that used to be his weakness.
So, yes, just pray!!
