To the Hurting Wife

By: Jenifer Metzger

To the wife whose husband hasn't told her she's beautiful in a while,

Sweet friend, you are beautiful. So beautiful. Do you know how I know this? Because you were made in the image of God.

So God created man in His own image;
in the image of God He created him;
male and female He created them.
Genesis 1:27

Every single thing about you is marvelous. You are gorgeous, stunning, lovely, you are His.

Yes, we women long to hear our husband tell us that he thinks we are beautiful. And yes, he should express this to us. But friend, your worth, your contentment, it doesn't come from your husband. Or any human being. It should come from God alone.

Lord, show us the Father
and we will be satisfied.
John 14:8

Sister, seek your contentment and fulfillment from God. When you find God, you will be satisfied. He is our Living Water and will fulfill us in ways we never thought imaginable.

Yet true godliness with contentment
is itself great wealth.
1 Timothy 6:6

As you begin to find your contentment and joy in God, your inner beauty will radiate outward and your husband will see just how beautiful, inside and out, you really are.
