"The heart of her husband trusts in her confidently and relies on and believes in her securely, so that he has no lack of [honest] gain or need of [dishonest] spoil. She comforts, encourages, and does him only good as long as there is life within her." Proverbs 31:11,12
Who does your heart belong too?
Let's be honest, it's easy to end a conversation (or plan to end one) when the person on the other end makes you want to "throw up then and there." (Thanks for that one Dana, I was LOL!). The conversation could go something like this:
"It's Mr. Ex Man..."
"How can I help you?"
"Blah Blah Blah (nothing important)"
"I apologize if I seem rude, but this is inappropriate because I am married so I am going to have to hang up now."
What if, however, Mr. Ex man isn't so repulsive to you. What if you think about him from time to time. Perhaps you thought he was the one you were supposed to end up with. What if...
Now is the time where the rubber meets the road. Now is the time to ask yourself,
"Am I completely my husbands?"
During the modesty series we talked about the heart being the key issue, but we had a large focus on the outward - how we dress. I think it's time we look a little deeper into the heart...into the emotions, secret places, and areas that God wants to heal, change, or break so that we can give ourselves fully and completely to our husbands. No second thoughts, no what if's, no faltering.
