What She Speaks


                         



Better to live in a desert than with a quarrelsome and ill tempered wife. 
{Proverbs 21:19}

I admit, I struggle with my emotions and sometimes my emotions drag me down. With all my heart, I do not want to be a quarrelsome wife or an ill tempered wife. I get so frustrated when I'm feeling misunderstood or I cannot articulate something to my husband in a way he can understand my heart. I get confused and even annoyed. I do not like those feelings nor do I even like to let my emotions control me. I really thank God so much that my husband is so patient with me. We have been married over 10 1/2 years now and in the beginning of our marriage I was an emotional wreck. :( 
I am 36 years old and I am still learning so much about biblical womanhood. 

I really had to learn a different way of communicating with my husband. I have to practice how to speak to him in a respectful tone of voice. I had to practice and make sure my facial expressions were not conveying disrespect and dishonor. I truly take delight in God's perfect design for womanhood. God's Word is teaching me so much about character, honor, respect, womanhood, and submitting to my husband in a God honoring way (really its beautiful). It's our trust in God that enables us to submit. I really had to do a lot of confessing to the LORD and admitting how desperately, I needed His help and abundant grace in this area of my life.        

Dear LORD, Your design for womanhood is amazingly beautiful, I delight in your decrees and in Your ways. Please LORD, teach me how to truly honor and respect my husband. Show me how to take control of my emotions and use them for your glory. Teach me the skill of clear, respectful communication. Let my words be wisely chosen.   

 She opens her mouth with wisdom; and on her tongue is the law of kindness.
 {Proverbs 31:26}

A wise woman builds her home, but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands. 
{Proverbs 14:1}

She does him good and not evil all the days of her life. 
{Proverbs 31:12}

Produce fruit in keeping in repentance. {Matthew 3:8} 

 When I come before the LORD and admit that I'm struggling with sin in my life. He heals this broken heart. HIS Love and His Holy Spirit gives me the desire to want to be obedient, only in His strength I am able to obey and live out His will and not my own will. The LORD is compassionate, He's so quick to forgive. I realize it's so easy to sin, it's effortless. I definitely do not need to practice how to sin, nor does anyone have to teach me. I do not want any pride to get in my way. Therefore, let me be that woman who admits: I need God, I need His strength, I need His mercy, I need His Grace, I need His love, I need His guidance, I need His forgiveness and I need to repent and rely on HIM to make me whole and complete. Our GOD is awesomely wonderful! 

 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. 
Hebrews 4:16

 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness 
1 John 1:19 

 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, self-control... 
Galatians 5:22-23

Radiant


I am so thankful for who the LORD is and all He has done. He has taken away my shame. When I look to Jesus, He fills this broken heart with His love, grace, and mercy. When I look to Him, the worries of this world just fades away. 
Ladies, let us look to Him. Let His praises always be on our lips.

Dear Lord, let every word I speak be a blessing.
