Marriage in God's heart (As a Wife)

My dear friends...

I got this encouraging and inspiring post other day from my boyfriend :), and my heart pushed me to share this on my blog. So yes, I would love to do this. I'm not married yet but soon in His perfect timing! and someday I want to delight my Lord through my relationship with my husband. 

So here's the  Inspiring things for the all married women, and if you're not yet then God wants you to learn from now :)

1. Marriage is made up of two good forgivers. Because every marriage is made up of two sinners. (Romans 3:23)

2. At some point, you will have to learn that life isn’t all about you. (Philippians 2:3)

3. Don’t listen to women that tell you that passion fades…it doesn’t have to! (um…all of Song of Solomon)

4. Don’t give up. Love never fails. (1 Cor. 13)

5. He wants a kind wife, not a maid or another mother. Be nice. (Galatians 5:22-23)

6. Give your husband the gift of your respect. He needs it more than you know. (Ephesians 5:33)

7. Be mindful of your expectations.

8. Honor the Lord above all things. Colossians 3:17

9. Find your worth and security in the Lord, and don’t look to your husband to meet all of your needs.

10. Be very careful about reading romance novels, they set you up for an unrealistic view of romance.

11. Real romance is finding that one spot in the crook of his arm to snuggle into, that shared look over the dinner table when the kids are acting crazy, and the way he fixes the leaky sink when he is dog-tired after work.

12. Love is about relationship. The more I love my husband, and seek a relationship with him, the less critical and duty-bound I become. It is similar to my relationship with God.

13. Be thankful for the husband you have. Accept him as he is, not for what you want him to be.

14. Don’t compare!! Don’t buy into the game of comparing him with anyone else’s husband.

15. The Biblically “normal” marriage is filled with joy, connection, laughter, and peace. It’s not free of hurt feelings and conflict, but they know how to process their pain with one another so that they live more often in a meadow than at the scene of a train wreck. This is not the average marriage, but it normal – -because it is a visible display of Jesus’ relationship with His bride (Ephesians 5:22-33).

16. Your marriage is a testimony! “The #1 evangelistic tool in the world today is a successful marriage, because it’s a living miracle!

17. Pray for your marriage. Pray hard.

18. Where there is God, there is always hope. Even for the most broken marriages. “With God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)

19. Marriage is commitment and sacrifice. But it’s also the best, most wild ride you will ever have with your best friend 
20. And again above all matters put God first :)

I hope this post encouraging you :)
This post is dedicated for my best friend for her anniversary with her husband in this month! Thank you for being beautiful woman inside-out. God brought you to me that I could learn to be beautiful in His eyes.

Thank you for Mama :) I'm blessed as your daughter. I"ve been learning things from you as a wife after God's own heart though you don't know this ;)

I too will copy these and have them close by to reflect on, thank you.

Seems like just yesterday that Stephanie was married! Time goes by quickly.

Blessings to you as you continue to walk close to Him.

Excellent, Delvalina. (love your name!)I love 10 and 11--I've tried to tell young wives just how important that advise is. I will certainly use this in mentoring. Each point is important and right where women often stumble.
