I love being married! I am so grateful that I get to start my day waking up next to my very best friend and every night I get to fall asleep, snuggled up against him. I love being my husband's wife and I thank God daily for the gift of my husband.
As much as I adore my man, the truth is, I don't always act like it. The busyness of life takes over our every day moments, and I admit, I'm quick to take my sweet Hubby for granted. Lately, I have been pondering, thinking, praying, and studying God's Word on how I can be a better wife. What can I do for my husband that encourages him, helps him and supports him? How can I show him that I adore, love, cherish, and respect him? In what ways can I bring him joy, make him smile, or just make his day a little bit better?
I want to put as much time, thought, prayer, and hard work in our marriage (of over 16 years now) as I did our big, beautiful, perfect wedding. After all, the wedding was just a moment in our journey together, our marriage is the span of our lifetime with one another. So, I'm embarking on a little journey. I am purposely working towards building my husband up in every way possible. Why? Because I'm his biggest cheerleader. I'm the one who has the privilege of living every day with him. I am the one he will look to for encouragement, prayer, support and love when the burden of the whole world seems to rest on his shoulders. I am NOT the perfect wife. In fact, I'm not even a bit close, and I know I'm going to fail and fall off the train many times. But....I'm determined to keep trying. I want him to know that when we said "I do" to each other all those years ago, that I (like him) meant every word and that I love him more now than I ever thought possible.
"Then the Lord God said, 'It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.'" ~ Genesis 2:18
"So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While the man slept, the Lord God took out one of the man;s ribs and closed up the opening. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man. 'At last!' the man exclaimed. 'This one is bone from my bone, and flesh from my flesh! She will be called woman because she was taken from man.'" ~ Genesis 2:21-23
Praying for God to bless each of our marriages today!
For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. "
