Witness Him Now
It's raining today and as much as I love the rain, this morning I was so annoyed y'all! I walked into my bathroom (to potty), sat my hiney down and water began hitting my thigh. My roof was leaking!! A lot! HOW ANNOYING!
As I went to the kitchen to grab a bowl, the Lord reminded me of a scripture.
Proverbs 27:15... a quarrelsome wife is as annoying as a leaky roof in a rainstorm.
I felt convicted Immediately, friends.
This weekend I was blessed to go with friends to the Women of Joy Conference in San Antonio Texas. I got to worship, fellowship and the Lord used Mighty women to teach great lessons all weekend long.
I would love to say that I took every second to bask in the glory of our Father... But the truth is that, although I learned so much, I spent the better part of the weekend trying to make sure that my husband did exactly what I thought he should be doing. and when I wasn't saying it to him via text or call... I was telling him what he ought to do in my heart.
This was my list (and it is a short one y'all)😜
- go take pictures of our daughters at the homecoming game
- fix the window in the bedroom
- keep the animals and children alive (haha)
- go hang out with one of our friends that I just KNEW had a word for him from God
The thing is sweet, sweet woman of God, The more I tried to control what my husband was to do the more annoyed he became. The more annoyed he became the more we argued. This took my peace and it took his too. When I was able to back off and let God move him in the direction that he wanted my husband to go... Freedom came.
I pray all the time that my husband would be a leader in my home. I know that I have friends out there that do the same. How often do we ask for a leader and when God tries to bless us with a Mighty Man, we take control?
Stop it! Don't be a leaky roof in your marriage!
Get out of God's way ladies and let him do his amazing work in your man. I promise, God has good plans for you and He has good plans for your marriage.
If this is you friend, turn quickly and repent, hug your husband tight and apologize. Then watch God bless your marriage.
Love and hugs
