April 26

Ephesians 5:22 KJV — Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

1 Timothy 3:11 KJV — Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.

1 Peter 3:1 KJV — Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for Your Word. Thank You that there is so much in scripture to guide and direct those who are women. Lord, oftentimes we find it offensive, the words in scripture, but Lord, I know we can trust You with every part of our lives. Too frequent, it is not Your Word at fault but our misunderstanding of it or how to apply it. Lord, You are loving, merciful, gracious, kind, gentle, full of compassion and patience. Help each of us ladies, married or not, to follow You and to live unto You in all things. Help us to be sober, hardworking, thoughtful, caring, diligent, and looking for opportunities to bless those around us. Lord, keep us from the snares of the enemy, lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. Lord, help us to be godly examples to other young ladies. To exhort and encourage girls to be devoted to God and not focused on men. Lord, please help our speech to be honorable before You, clean, wholesome, uplifting, and full of praise. Lord, please help us to take prayer seriously. To be diligent in seeking Your face and Your Word for ourselves and others. Lord Jesus, please make us a generation of women known for our good works, our love of our families, and our devotion to You. Thank You Jesus! Amen.

    To be honest, this did offend me before I got married. But then I read the Word, humbled myself, married a nice honest man, and I am now more than happy to obey and let him lead! I am now living a good life 🙂 The Word of God has never steered me wrong ~ even the parts I once found hard to follow.

    (PS: aww there’s a tiny smiley face at the bottom of your blog page! 😃)

      I understand exactly what you mean. God’s Word has never steered me wrong either. I’m so glad you are living a good life! That’s wonderful!
      (Really!?! That’s awesome. 🙂 I didn’t see that. I’ll have to go look!)
