To Do: Read Proverbs 30
Focus Point: Proverbs 30:23
Today we are reading through this chapter and writing down everything that comes to mind concerning your marriage. This is all about you and what you need in order to become wiser in your own marriage. My Pastor always says that marriage is a designer original and only YOU know what YOU need to make yours work.
The scripture that stuck out to me when I read it was Proverbs 30:23. Verse 21 says, “There are three things that make the earth tremble”….Then verse 23 goes on to say,, “A bitter woman who finally gets a husband”.
This stood out to me because it made me remember that in marriage, at some point, the pretending stops. Who you really are is going to come out at one way or another. If you’re insecure while you’re single, your insecurities are just going to be heightened in marriage. They are not going to disappear. If you’re a bitter woman and you finally find a husband, you’re just going to be more bitter which is why the scripture says this makes the earth tremble.
It made me think of all of the things that went on in my past and how I can’t allow them to enter my marriage. Past relationships, past pains and hurts have no place in our marriages and if we do not constantly work on ourselves and use the wisdom God gave to build our marriages up, we will never be content in them.
Affirmation of the day!
Every day in every way my spouse and I are happier and happier.
