“Actions speak louder than words.”
1 Peter 3:1-2 New English Translation (NET Bible)
Wives and Husbands
1In the same way, wives, be subject to your own husbands. Then, even if some are disobedient to the word, they will be won over without a word by the way you live, 2 when they see your pure and reverent conduct.
Of all the people my husband chooses me, I am not one of the easiest people to get along with. I am opinionated, straight forward and to the point. I am trying to be compassionate but I lack in that area. I don’t show sympathy and I hate lies. It makes me seem unapproachable and really difficult. I also don’t change my mind and my belief in God is unchangeable, according to me my Savior is the Lord Jesus Christ and nothing else matters.
Because of my feelings and my actions; my husband just isn’t interested in serving God. He said he tried it and it doesn’t work. I was at a loose and I felt terrible. I then realised that I cannot push him to serve God and that I should set the example. The thing is I am fickle and have a different way of approaching life. I don’t badger him anymore with the Word of God and am more considered, watch my mouth and work on being sincere towards him.
The challenge I am facing currently is being compassionate, controlling my mouth and not saying things the way I see them. I do love him and it is my hope that he will become a true Christian. I do submit to him and I am trying to be a good wife and I pray each day that the Lord Jesus will help me set the example. Let my actions speak loader than words, which by the way are difficult at the best of times.
Prayer: Oh Lord, my God thank You for the word that You inspire woman to be subject to their own husbands. Lord help us to be an inspiration and let our actions speak loader than words to draw our husbands to You in the Holy Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen
