As I crack open my devotional notebook to work on my Proverbs 12 post, I am, once again, in awe of the practical marriage advice found in God's Word.
If I want to be a wife with no regrets, I will continue to meditate on and apply these truths for the rest of my life. No regrets doesn't mean I will always respond perfectly in my role as a wife. No regrets means I know I gave each day my best efforts towards my marriage and I leave the results up to God.
Here is what I came away with from Proverbs 12:
I want to be a worthy wife who is my husband's joy and crown because a shameful wife will drain him (verse 4)
I want to have wisdom in the words that I say so they will give healing to my husband's soul (verse 18)
I need to plan for peace in my home and then I will have a joy-filled heart (verse 20)
I need to cheer my husband up with an encouraging word (verse 25)
I am praying that I will be a good steward with our resources by making good use of everything I find (verse 27)
What verses did God show you from His Word today? I have a devotional notebook where I make a note of the verses that apply to my marriage. Under each date, I write the reference of the verse and then write it in my own words using my husband's name where applicable. It looks like this:
12:18 May I have wisdom in the words that I say so they will give healing to Adam's soul
Doing this has made it easy to look back on those truths on a regular basis so that I can continue to meditate on them. By meditating on them, it is much easier to bring those truths back to my mind when I need it.
