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.

She does him good and not evil all the days of her life.
