Christ-centered Marriage, A Solid Foundation To Change The World
Who doesn’t want to rule, conquer or change the world? Most people, if not all people, want to achieve great success in life, whether it is to build a great home life as homemakers, build superb careers; build business empires that last for generations; come up with new witty inventions that change the course of life, become president even a world-leader and much more? A Christ-centered marriage provides the best foundation to do that. Genesis 1:27-28 NIV [27] So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.[...]
The Most Important Thing To Look For In A Potential Husband Is Whether He Is A Serious Believer!
To the young ladies out there, I know every girl dreams of the tall, dark and handsome, rich guy who sweeps her off her feet and they live happily ever after like the movies tell us! I was young once too. But let me burst that bubble for you ever so slightly. The most important thing to look for in a potential husband is whether he is a serious believer! Don’t missionary date a guy hoping that by dragging him to church , after you marry him he will come to Christ. We cannot force someone to believe in Jesus,[...]
Culture And Tradition Our Parents Expect Us To Observe
This post I wrote with the help of my husband. We (in the photograph) are from two very different cultures. When we write together we use the identity “Loved Wife, Respected Husband” Since we got married we adopted a common culture, a Biblical one, as the overriding culture in our lives. Culture and tradition in general Culture or Tradition is a beautiful thing. It is a part of our heritage. In marriage observing culture or tradition can sometimes be a point of contention, strife or worse. As Christians we can agree that God’s Word is supreme. Therefore culture or tradition[...]
Strong Is Not Wrong, Independence Is The Problem
There is a clear distinction between being a strong woman and wanting to be independent. Being strong is encouraged by the word of God. Proverbs 31:17 NIV [17] She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. Being independent is encouraged by the world. I remember desperately trying to hold onto my independence as a strong woman when we first got married, feeling overwhelmed to not “lose” myself completely in marriage and let a “man” tell me what to do and run my life. The word independence is defined as being self-reliant, self-dependent, self-sufficient, all good[...]
A Noble Wife Versus A Disgraceful Wife
Let’s choose to be noble wives so that we may not bring ruin to our husbands and our marriages. When you consider the definition, below, of a noble wife versus one that is disgraceful and brings decay to her husbands “bones”, I don’t know about you, but I’d rather be noble. May the Holy Spirit help us to be noble wives. Proverbs 12:4 NIV [4] A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones. Proverbs 31:10 NIV [10] A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far[...]
Your Husband Should Be Your Closest Confidant, In Fact The Should Be Your Best Friend, And You , His
Your husband should be your closest confidant, in fact he should be your best friend, and you, his. We share our whole lives together with our husbands. We live together, we sleep together, we are intimate together, we attend church together, we pray together, we raise our precious kids together, we spend leisure time together and much more. They should know our strengths and our areas we need to grow, our dreams and our realities, our gains and our losses, our rejections and our victories, our hurts and our joys, our frustrations and our breakthroughs and all there is to[...]
Why Won’t My Husband Change When Clearly He Is The Problem?
Marriage is meant to transform us to be more like Jesus. When change needs to take place in us in order to grow as godly wives, and we are blinded by our own self-righteousness and stubbornness, expecting our husbands to change or grow first or just accept us the way we are, is a recipe for disaster. We cannot force our husbands to change or grow, only the Word of God and His power can. What we can do is be obedient and allow the Holy Spirit to change or grow us whilst we pray for our husbands. We may[...]
Strong Is Not Wrong, Being A Wife Who Is Not Submitted To Her Husband Is
I am excited to have written this post with my husband. He is sold out to Jesus too and we share a passion for marriages centered around Him! When we write together will use identity “Loved Wife, Respected Husband” Here is our first post together. 1. Being strong is not wrong. Proverbs 31:17 NIV She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. Proverbs 31:25 NIV She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. 2. Not being submitted to your husband is wrong. The Bible is very clear; Ephesians[...]
