Created to be his Helpmeet Chapter 6!
Ok so after reading this chapter ,I know one thing is for sure I don't want to be a crazy lady.
Speaking of fear... have you ever heard the saying ,"he/she doesn't fear anything.) Usually when that is used it is when someone is doing some thing irresponsible. Fear as you learned can be a good thing.
Listed were 3 verses that spoke on fear being a good thing:
Learning to be my husbands helpmeet was the best thing I did for myself and my marriage. You do not know what you will like or dislike until you try it. Titus 2:3 was listed as a reference verse and I see why. I wasn't taught by my mother to be sober and love my husband, So there were many times I recall saying aloud and to myself... "he never had a problem with this when we were dating...." "I'd be better off alone.." or the infamous ," I'm a grown woman, no one can tell me what to do.." Yes thoughts like this are common and should be rebuked these thoughts will cause nothing but harm and a miserable marriage. It wasn't until I grabbed this book that I realized I had so much power within my own actions and words to change even the most "un changeable" man.
So lets get to that "Crazy lady." Thankfully I have never been the one to lose it out in public.( I said public, I'm not perfect ;-) ) Though I do recall many a time where I have seen a miserable woman going off on their spouses looking so proud of themselves for proving their point for the world to see. I also remember recalling my thought that I had when I saw it . They were usually thoughts of ..that poor man.. Or she's making a fool of herself..
So you see why I didn't want to be in that category.
We as women tend to shut or husbands out because we don't feel like they are in the word enough, we think "how could he tell me what to do when he doesn't even know the will of God. Well you know that rebellious spirit is a sign of distrust in the Lord. God wants us to be a helpmeet to our husbands period. It doesn't have stipulations such as: only if he's saved...or if he's sweet to you ..if he faithful. NO what is your duty is YOUR duty no one else's so no excuses DO IT. 1 Sam 15:23 is a great verse about King Saul's offerings to God but his disregard to the will of God! How that is a rebellion equal to witch craft!
Ok Ladies our Time to consider:
Remembering that peace is a fruit of the spirit . Galatians 5:22-23
Let us not practice bitterness or those woeful things that drag us down and make us miserable. Someone once told me something that changed my world, " when you hold onto anger toward someone the only person that's being affected is you, because that anger is building within you. The other person has no effects and can continue on with their merry life."
Proverbs 30:21-23 for three things the earth is disquieted, and four which it cannot bear: For a servant when he reigneth ; and a fool when he is filled with meat; For an odious woman when she is married; and a handmaid that is heir to her mistress.
Definition of odious :
extremely unpleasant; repulsive.
So did you look up fear in the KJV bible? Can you say you truly fear the Lord.
I took the liberty in searching a few verses for you:
So lets continue to love and obey the Lord. Don't let yourself become a crazy lady.
