Happy Hump Day Girls!
It is so crazy we are already on Day 24 of 30!
Today's topic is all about the parts of marriage. I love the scripture reading and references to the human body and its parts. Some things I highlighted from today's reading are:
" The example Paul chose simply explains how parts make up a whole"
" A foot, an ear, an eye are all individual parts, working alongside other parts to fulfill their function and to make up the whole human body."
"Likewise, as a Christian you become a member of Christ's body, working alongside other believers to fulfill God's will." "Everyone is given a different distribution of gifts by the Holy Spirit, they work in unity and in obedience to God."
Your husband is one part and you are one part but together you are whole and make up the body of your marriage. Each of you bring different attributes to the table through your God given gifts via the Holy Spirit. Without both of your attributes, your marriage would not be whole or complete. I just want to encourage each of you today. Whether you have pinpointed your gifts or you can't seem to think of one gift you possess. God created you in His image (Day 1). That means he designed each of us with such create creativity and uniqueness. You may not realize it or you may doubt it, but your gifts make a difference in others lives, in your marriage, and to your husband. Sweet friends, each of you possess a gift and have a purpose. Your gift may be to give financial advice or service to others, to show God's love by being a mother, to heal patients through chiropractic, to provide a listening ear to others, to encourage others, the possibilities are endless. So, even though you may not know exactly what your gifts are, recognize that God have given you great purpose and gifts through the Holy Spirit. We are called to use our gifts to care for the body (ie our marriage).
Just like you take care of your body daily, what are some things you can do to take care of your marriage daily to maintain it and keep it healthy?
I can pray for Justin daily and pay attention to his needs and care for his needs as a wife by being loving, supportive, encouraging, and respectful. I can also pray for myself for God to continue to mold me and change me into a Godly wife... A wife after God!
