I Do….Well I Did Part 3

I have been searching the web and I have found that there are roughly more women who write blogs then men.  Although the men are catching up.  I visit a lot of blogs myself.  Most of them are from women writers.  They talk about everything under the sun.  Typical things like beauty products, fashion, and women’s physical issues.  Then there are those who talk about how to be a mom.  The in’s and out’s of it.  You have some who talk about their personal walk with God. You have some who talk about their families walk with God.  Then you have others that twist and turn everything that would make a woman a good wife, mother, and even a good woman into something evil.  You know, the man haters. There are many, many more, on even more and more subjects for women. I have been seeing quite a few lately that talk about comparing life now to life in the 40’s and 50’s.  Most of them have the view of “That was the life.”  Because they can see the simplicity of life if we don’t allow others to sway us.  I would like to encourage you to visit some of the sites yourself and see if you can relate to them.  You might find that you have a June Cleaver in you yet. A June Cleaver that you enjoy being.

We see what a wife is to do in Titus 2:5 to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.  Look at the key words. Discreet: Careful.  Chaste: Refraining from sexual intercourse that is regarded as contrary to morality or religion; virtuous.  Homemaker: A person who manages the household of her own family, especially as a principal occupation.  Blasphemed:to speak impiously or irreverently of (God or sacred things.)  Now ask yourself does this describe you?  If not then where do you need to work on your life?  It can be hard to see in a mirror sometimes.  You may need to ask.  The best person to ask is your husband.  We can also look at 1 Peter where he speaks about wives submission to their husbands.  Read verse 4 carefully: rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.   Did you catch that.  A gentle and quiet spirit.  Not someone who is spouting off, “Bring it on!”

Now if you have read about Sarah you know that she was not always a gentle and quiet spirit.  She was first Sarai which has the Hebrew meaning of argumentative.  It was God who changed her. It was God who renamed her to Sarah meaning princess.  It wasn’t until she took herself to Him and stayed with Him that she changed.  There are several other women in the Bible that also have a gentle and quiet spirit.  Because of this, God found favor with them and blessed them.  These weren’t women that were looking to get ahead in the world, or fighting to have jobs.  They weren’t trying to keep up with the Jones’s.  They were living for the Lord.  They placed Him first, then their husbands, and others around them.  They put their wants aside to please God. And they did it with joy in their hearts.  They yearned to please God.  They followed His word and kept the meaning of it in their hearts.  And it showed to everyone who encountered them.

For this reason, those women got all the attention, appreciation, and respect that the women of today are looking for.  I could go into a lot more on the book of Titus and 1 Peter, and maybe someday I will, but for now I would like you to just ponder or meditate on the scriptures above.  Are you yearning to please God?  Are you making decisions of being a wife according to the scriptures?  To be a wife is a blessing in its self.  It comes with great responsibility. Responsibilities that only you can do.  These are love responsibilities given to us by Love.  You can not be loving to your husband if you are not first and foremost loving God.  Your husband can not love you in the truest form that he has, if you are not first loving God.  We don’t get to pick and choose what we are to do.  We have been clearly told by Love.  1 John 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.

  1. Good points, once again, Tonya. When God is first in our lives, followed by husband’s and family, life has the correct balance. We are actually far more fulfilled than when we seek our own objectives first, but too many can’t see it. Great post!
