The Gift


"House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the LORD."

Prudent = one of godly intelligence, pleasing disposition and sound wisdom in managing her household

I want to let God conform me to His image. I desire to allow Him to chisels away at the edges, add character that is lacking, brings trials to strengthen me. I know that as I go to Him daily reading His Word I will hear Him speak to me; showing me where I have sinned. How thankful I am that He always grants me His forgiveness, and as He does I learn of Him. He changes me.

I can not do it myself. My most diligent efforts at flesh reform will ultimately lead to defeat. Each defeat of the flesh confirms to my heart the sinfulness within. The utter hopelessness at making myself act like a Christian. I can not do it myself; but He can do it through me! He desires to do it through me. To show Christ to me - to change me.

"Not I, but Christ..."

I am spending more time at His feet, reading His Word, listening to His voice. I want to be like Him. I want to be a gift that he is able to give to my husband.

"...a prudent wife is from the Lord."

I want to have Him so work in me that He is able to say to my husband - "Here she is, I have molded her, strengthened her, and made her a help meet for you!"

Excellent! That's the kind of woman I want to be too - one that the Lord can say, "Here is your gift" to my husband!
