One would think this would get easier. Just when I think I'm doing well some big, ugly, nasty, stinky, slimey, prideful emotion rears it's yucky head. Then you find yourself in the bathroom tearing strip off your husband as he tries to relax in the tub.
"Goodness gracious woman what on earth are you doing??!! Shut your mouth and hope he forgives you for your selfishness!"
"But he said something that offended me and I want to be justified!!!"
"If you refuse to listen to me then I'll leave you alone to this all by yourself"
"Oh crap I did it again. Now what? Hello? Lord? Where did you go?"
Yeah it wasn't a great evening. But thankfully my God and my husband love me and are extremely forgiving!
Luke 16:15 "He said to them, 'You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of men, but God knows your hearts. What is highly valued among men is detestable in God's sight.'"
Proverbs 21:9 "Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife."
Proverbs 14:1 "The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down."
Next time your hubby offends you please remember your God who will justify you and ask yourself "Is this worth losing my marriage?" It only takes one fight for the missery to start.
If you have been a quarrelsome wife I suggest you get on your face before God and then get on your knees before your husband and ask him what you need to change! I only say this because I have been there. I am so thankful for what God has done in my life, I am a different woman than I was 6 years ago. If you don't believe me, ask my husband ;)
God bless you ladies in you lives with God and with your husbands. Let me know if I can pray for you, and please pray for me!
