The honorable role as his help meet

The honorable role as his help meet

When I first got married, I didn’t want to be my husband’s help meet.

I was a strong and independent young woman.

Sure, I had fallen in love.

I also wanted to get married and spend the rest of my life with this wonderful gift of a man God had blessed me with.

Still, after surviving the many incredulous events that life had thrown at me, including the death of my dad when I was nine and the responsibility of taking care of my three younger sisters years later, I wanted to feel secure and happy.  I wanted to just be a recipient, not the helper.

I sought those things long and hard.  And, at times, the harder I sought after the need to feel secure and happy, the more elusive they became.   All because my priority was messed up.

I  was so focused on what I wanted, I was missing God’s divine plan and purpose for me as a wife.   This is an area of my marriage I now continue to learn and grow in.

To read my post please head over to http://young-wives.com/uniquely-help-meet where I had the privilege of guest posting this past week.  I pray this post will be an encouragement to you.

Dear friends, let us continue to journey together by faith today.  God bless you!
