Blessed in Abundance

Happy Summer Ladies!  I hope you all have been enjoying your summer and getting a little rest and relaxation.  Did you know that God commands rest?  Oh yes, He never meant for us to go non-stop, never stopping to take in His blessings.  In recreation, we recreate ourselves.  We renew our strength, refresh our bodies, thus getting a fresh perspective and renewed attitude for the next leg of the journey.  Matthew 11:28, “Come unto me all thee that labour and i will give you rest.”  While on vacation a typical day for me as a housewife goes like this.

I get up with my husband fix his lunch and see him off to work.  I hit the gym somewhere between 5 and 6am, and do my workout.  Next, I love to swim so  I swim for about a half hour, then relax my muscles in the hot tub.  Next, I have a healthy breakfast and hit the shower.  I take care of the business of the day whatever that may be on that particular day.  Sometimes that means running errands, appointments, etc..

On Fridays I like to clean the house for the weekend and prepare a clean warm, and inviting atmosphere for my hardworking husband to come home to. (yes I do it myself) Then I prepare a healthy lunch.  The rest of the day I get to relax until my husband comes home.

So you see I’m just an ordinary person with a normal life.  What makes me extraordinary is my relationship with God.  He’s the secret to my success!  As a Christian woman, wife and mother, I put my trust in Him and things have a way of working themselves out.  Keep believing!  Keep strengthening your soul with His word so that you may be able to withstand the various trials that come our way.  God never promised we would not have problems, he promised He’d be with us when we do.  When God is for you He’s more than the whole world against you!  Below are some uplifting scriptures about women to meditate on this summer.

Proverbs 14:1, “A wise woman builds her house but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands.  A wise woman will keep watch over her house and seek to provide an atmosphere that others are drawn too in plain terms NO drama!

Proverbs 11:16, “A kind-hearted woman gains honor.” God wants you to be a woman who is pleasant to know!

Titus 2:5, “A woman of God is self-controlled and pure, busy at home, kind, and subject to their husbands.” She works at controlling her spirit, she takes care of the home, she’s a kind woman and she seeks her husband’s knowledge and advice.

Proverbs 21:19, “Better to live in a desert than with a quarrelsome and nagging wife.” (Wow even God says STOP! nagging him).  Instead have a conversation with him being mindful of your tone and the timing of the conversation.

Ephesians 5:22, “Wives submit yourself to your own husbands as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church.”  (God is clear, the husband is the head! I love having a strong capable man!  Turns me on!)

1 Timothy 3:11, “In the same way women are to be worthy of respect.  Not malicious talkers, but temperate and trustworthy in everything.” He’s saying if you don’t have anything good to say don’t say anything!  The bible says we are to build up each other.  I don’t involve myself in gossip!  It’s a waste of my time and I’m not interested.  I’m more interested in what is happening in my own life than anything else.  Keep watch over your own house ladies!

Beloved Daughter of the King

Do you know who you are?  When you know who you are and whose you are you can withstand anything.  You are a daughter of the King, Galatians 3:26.  You are God-fearing, Proverbs 31:30.  You are steadfast in Christ, Romans 8:31-38.  You are redeemed, Ephesians 1:7.  You are loved, Isaiah 43:3.  You are beautiful, Psalms 139:13-16.  You are worth far more than rubies, Proverbs 31:10.  You are more than makeup and clothes, 1 Peter 3:4.  You are free, John 8:36.  You are worth it, Romans 5:6-8.  You are victorious, Philippians 4:13.  You are joyful, John 15:11.  You are transformed, Romans 12:2.  You are dignified, Proverbs 22:11.  You are favored, Proverbs 8:35.  Own who you are!!!

Husband, Father, Servant

A husband and a father is a man’s highest calling.  What is the role of a Godly man?  How does a Christian woman recognize him when she sees him?  Scripture describes the man as leader.

1 Timothy 3:1-16,  “Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money.  He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church?”

The man is to show honor to his wife found in,

1 Peter 3:7, “Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.”  The man, the husband, father, and servant leader is held accountable to God.  When Adam and Eve first sinned in the garden, God came looking for Adam!  The one He left in charge.  Adam blamed the woman.  That was unacceptable to God and in Genesis 3:23,  “The Lord God banished Adam from the Garden to work the ground from which he had been taken.”

Likewise wives are called to submit to their husbands.

Yes submit.  But not to just any man, a godly man, that’s taking his direction from God because he’s only as good as the resources he draws from.  I know Some women don’t like to hear that, however the bible is clear, and God does not change!  “He’s the same today yesterday and forever more.”
Malachi 3:6“I, the lord your God do not change!”  Colossians 3:18“Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in to the lord.”  Even Nature knows a female needs a strong man.

When eagles get ready to mate, and by the way eagles can only mate with other eagles, and not just any eagle, the most capable eagle.  Able to sustain a wife and family.  So the ritual goes as follows; the female eagle flies to the highest peak, and drops a stick mid-air, the male eagle capable of getting the stick is the one who gets to mate with the female eagle, sound easy?  Not so, there can be only one winner.

My husband is a Christian man, a praying man, he’s also a good money manager.  He’s always thinking about and preparing for our needs months down the road.  He’s very rational, reasonable, and self-controlled.  We pray together almost daily, usually in the morning to pray for our day.  We take our concerns to God!  Because worrying is no good!  I need him to be strong for me!  The bible says you’ll know him by his fruit!  He told me when we were dating I want to honor you, I don’t want sex until we’re married!  I could see that he was a very blessed man!  And a true Christian that practices what he preaches.  I said to him you’re the real deal baby!

Of course there were other things, like the way he treated me.  He knows HOW to treat a woman!  He treats me in such a way that I can’t help but surrender to the masculine energy!!!  He has a good heart and sincerely wants to do his best!  If a man does not do his best toward his woman his prayers are hindered 1 Peter 3:7  As a man do you ever wonder why your prayers are not being answered?  It’s because God is watching, and He knows the intents of the heart.  However, “the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord.”  God will lead him to success, prosperity, good health, a good woman,etc….  There’s nothing sexier than a man on top of his game!

 

3 John 1:2, “Beloved, I wish above all things for you to prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospers!”

Authors Note:  I would be remiss if I did not tell you that these types of men are rare these days!  They are NOT around every corner!  He’s a rare and special find.  The kind of man only God can bring!  So “be anxious for nothing but by prayer and supplication let your request be made known to God.”  Then prepare yourself to be found.  Work on yourself!!!!!  Whatever areas in your life need fixing, whether it be the inside, the outside, both!  Ask God to show you what needs to be fixed in your life.  I had a lot that needed to be worked out before receiving my husband, then God proved to me His word.  “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all of these things shall be added!!!!!”  He did indeed add everything I needed when I looked to HIM!!!!!!

Summer Psalms for the Soul

The Beautiful book of Psalms.  I love the Psalms of the Bible.  For a new Christian it’s the easiest to read found in the middle of the Bible.  It helps you to understand the heart of God toward us, and gives us a sense of comfort and security.  We learn that the all-seeing, all-powerful God watches over us.  Use the Psalms to cultivate a life of worship, use them to cultivate a thankful heart.  Use the Psalms to cultivate a deeper relationship with God.  We need God involved in every aspect of our life lest we fall or stumble.  What a privilege to take our concerns to God through prayer.  The scripture says “be anxious for nothing but by everything with prayer and supplication let your request be made known to God”  Philippians 4:6.  Revive your heart and soul this summer!
