Wife after God is designed to walk you through a journey with god, that is tailored through the role of being a wife. I am going to go day by day and reflect on my relationship with god and my husband. I will not be summarizing days or writing the versus that correlate. But I will be journaling and using the refection questions to help me go through this next month.
Describe a time when someone blessed you that really impacted your life?
I feel as thought there are many times in my life that people have blessed me, but last year I was go through a tough time and I am thankful for so many various people. They were able to help me embrace and move forward and continue one day at a time. Some brought us meals others left care packages at my door, and some just send simple texts with words of encouragement. Through this time I learned who my true friends were and was uplifted to know I have people in my life that love and care about me.
What does in mean to you to be living sacrifice?
I think after looking at this chapter I have learned that what we do is not a sacrifice but like you said should be considered joy. I can share this joy within my marriage as well as with friends. I have tried to reach out and help others by inspiring them to be all they can be, and give them advise when I have some words that I feel would be helpful.
Do you have any fears about being a living sacrifice?
No, I think when you believe and feel comfortable in your own skin you will be able to show that to others. Wether its giving others advise or just doing something nice for someone in need I think we should not fear in providing this joy to people around us.
Day 12: The Armor of God
Why is it important for you to put on the full armor of God?
So that you are ready for your day and you are able to take on anything.
What could some of the "flaming arrows of the evil one" look like in your marriage?
I think for me its having misplaced priorities. I sometimes put unimportant things before my husband. I know this about myself and am working on this evil one.
