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.

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