Meet My Needs

Last month I attended a marriage seminar. It’s good to come together and be around other likeminded married couples in the Lord. I say “in the Lord” because that makes a huge difference. All married couples do not believe in God being the head of their marriage.

As believers, we know God is the head of our union. We may disagree on occasions and think we are right. But at the end of the day the word should be the final authority. I know what you said and I know what I said but what does the word say?  What does God say? Pastor Sidney & Barbara Davis of St. James Missionary Church in Virginia Beach hosted and facilitated the seminar. They are funny, down to earth and love the Lord. We started chatting about meeting the emotional needs of a woman and how this is so important.

One of the sexiest things I love about my husband is how he takes care of his family and shows interest in the little things. That’s right. I didn’t say he had to buy me a new car, build me a house or shower me with roses. It’s the little things that matter to me.

Below are three things we do to make our marriage work and meet those emotional needs.
1. We call, text and email each other throughout the day. Before I arrive at the office, there is always an email from my husband that says - “I Love You - Have a Good Day”

2. We give each other space. As soon as he gets home from work I do not bombard him with tasks or questions. I make sure the kids let him get settled as well.

3.  We constantly tell each other what we like about each other. “I like the way you take charge.” or “I like when you wear that dress or those jeans.”

Men - You cannot expect some good loving when you have not talked to us all day or shown any interest in what we do. It just doesn’t work that way. You must meet our emotional needs. You may get some loving, but it may not be good.
