Created to be his Helpmeet, chapter 3- A Thankful Spirit

This chapter was all about contentment.  A subject that a lot of us Christian women find ourselves having trouble with.  Are you content with the life your husband provides or are you complaining, making an outright attack on his ego? Are you appreciative and thankful to your husband or are you trying to be his Holy Spirit?  Oftentimes, I hear a lot women say, "If only..., if he..., I could if..."  I've said these exact things myself.  So many excuses to find a way out of what God calls us to.  BUT,  if in God's Word you don't see Him starting a command with exceptions or giving a command with them, then why do we? All of a sudden does God's commands not apply to us? Don't allow your heart to be hardened to the things of God. 

Phil 4:11 ...for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.

Heb 13:5 ... and be content with what you have.

1 Tim. 6:6-8  But godliness with contentment is great gain,  for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world.  But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.

If you are having trouble in being content, start practicing it today. Just because you've always been a certain way or had trouble in a certain area, doesn't mean that you can't change. Seek the Lord for help in this.

Romans 8:26  Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness...

Things to think on:

Have I been discontent with my lot in life?

Do I verbally show thanksgiving everyday?

Do I daily thank God for my husband?

Would my friends describe me as joyful, thankful, and content?
