Today I was frustrated with my husband; and then one of my best friends called…..and you know what? She was frustrated with hers too. Lol! As she spoke to me, I heard my voice speaking back to her; but it was counsel and wise instruction for the both of us. Sometimes we may think that we know what is best for our husbands; but it’s just wise to allow God the space to speak to and lead them (and us). I read Mark 10:45 last night; and have been meditating on it today. Yeshua came to SERVE (minister) and GIVE. He is the best example of how life is to be lived. Both serving and giving requires us to give up our own wills; as well as how we think about others and things, if the thought process is out of alignment with YHWH/God’s word and will.
The beautiful thing about marriage is that it is a covenant between the husband, YHWH/God and wife. I always say to other married women (and myself): “You and YHWH/God are the majority.” If you’re frustrated with your spouse, go to YHWH/God and offer a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving. This alone, can shift your entire thought process and atmosphere. Continue to serve and give; and watch how YHWH/God smooth things out. Much of the time, you’ll even find that YHWH/God is working out something in you that you didn’t even realize was there. He’s pretty awesome in that way.
I have come to realize that frustrations and challenges are always opportunities for refinement. Our spouses are simply mirroring back; areas that need improvement in us. There’s such freedom in not getting frustrated or annoyed by someone else’s behavior. When we realize and act in the gift of being a helper to our husbands, it transforms the entire marriage; because we’ve set ourselves in alignment with the word and will of YHWH/God. We experience Yeshua like never before; because like Him, we are servers and givers. YHWH/God bless all of the wives (and people) who are reading this post. Remember that His word and way is the standard for every area of our lives.
