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.
What fruit of the spirit do you feel you are lacking?
I feel a fruit I need to work on is patience. Patience is the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble or suffering without getting angry or upset. I think the aspect I need to work on is the capacity to accept if something is not going my way. I need to not freakout and know everything happens for a reason and go fro there.
How will an intentional increase in fruit production positively affect your relationship with God and your husband?
If you can have all the characteristics (joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control) that God provides, I believe you will you will thrive to the fullest. This will only affect your relationship with God and your husband in a positive way.
Day 26: Hiding From God
Have you and your husband ever been afraid of God or hid from Him because of sin?
I don't feel like my husband or I have been afraid of God or hid from him because of sin. I think we get separated sometimes because of the busyness of life and not making it the priority it should be. We are so wrapped up in everyday life that we sometimes forget to take the moments we need. I sometimes forget how my relationship will thrive when I take the time I need to be with God.
How has sin affected your intimacy with God or intimacy with your husband?
I feel in most relationships sin would make one feel lonely, ashamed and insecure. When one has a strong relationship you should learn to confront sin and bring sin to light through communication. Once you are able to get to that point pair it with forgiveness and you will have a never failing relationship and intimacy with God and your husband.
