As you enter the wife phase,
This is my prayer for you: that your love will grow more and more; that you will have knowledge and understanding with your love; that you will see the difference between what is important and what is not and choose what is important; that you will be pure and blameless for the coming of Christ; (Philippians 1:9, 10 ERV)
If you have chosen to accept this man as the head of your life you will need more than love. You will need to make a vow right here and now to keep everyone out of your business. No girlfriends, besties, day ones, mothers, fathers, brother or sisters. Your mate should be your number one, your only. When your man falls short of your expectations in ANY AREA, fall to your knees. Tell God your concerns and ask for the peace of your salvation to sustain you until God’s will is made manifest in that man. If your faith is as small as a mustard seed, stand on the word of God and see how great is our God. I am not promising that he will change your husband but I am saying he is able. Don’t despair, it may be you he changes. Keep God in your decisions and in your indecision he will make a way.
Remember to pick your battles, you need not win every fight, you don’t even have to fight every fight. It’s OK to allow time to cool your thoughts so your conversations can be productive. No real decisions can be made in anger. A wife’s role can be wonderfully fulfilling if you accept that you need to trust God and be faithful to your husband and to God.
