Becoming a Wife

Tomorrow will be six weeks since I married Taylor. It has been a fabulous six weeks. I love him dearly, and every day I love him more. I'm am learning, however, that I have a lot to learn about being a wife. I am finding myself spending more time praying for wisdom as I mature as Taylor's wife. I also find myself praying for Taylor, for his wisdom as he leads our marriage. Last night I sat down and starting looking up verses one by one that are located under the term "wife" in the concordance. I've decided to read a few a day and let myself meditate and pray on them as I internalize each verse in a new, very applicable way. Becoming a Godly wife is a study in becoming more like Christ. It's intense and deep, but oh so wonderful. I love the depth my relationship with Christ is achieving simply because He has brought me into this marriage relationship. I love Taylor with all of my being, and I am excited to see what is in store for us in the days/weeks/months/years to come.

"She is clothed with strength and dignity,
and she laughs without fear of the future.
When she speaks, her words are wise,
and she gives instructions with kindness.
She carefully watches everything in her household
and suffers nothing from laziness."
Proverbs 31:25-27

You may have already read this book, but I read The Power of a Praying Wife over and over again - I am continuously reading it! It's such a wonderful guide to lead you through praying for your husband and being the wife the Lord wants you to be. I really can't even tell you how many times I've read through the book. It's fabulous! Highly recommended. I love your idea of reading a "wife" verse a day!
