Wife after God, Day 9 +10

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.

Day 9: The Good Wife
What motivates you to treat your husband good?
This one is a little hard for me and something I am working on. We both come home from work and I want to be able to relax and be one that is pampered. But I am trying to help with the little things. Its not happening every night but I do try to help out with cleaning the house, or fixing dinner. I also think just being supportive. Whether is encouraging him in his work, as a soon to be father, or as a husband. With that I will try to send him text every once in while expressing how much he means to me.

What is one way you can be a good wife today?
Being a good wife begins with your relationship with god. And doing this devotional is strengthening my relationship with god and will then turn into my relationship with my husband. But I would just want to repeat everything I said above. I want to continue the things I already do and try to pick up new ways of being a good wife, when I know he needs that from me. 

Day 10: Perfect Posture
What are examples of negative postures you have expressed towards your husband? What kinds of things affect your attitude?
I put together the first two questions because I feel like I would answer them with the same information so here we go.
When is comes to negative posture, I get quite and just close him out. This bad attitude and the posture that comes along with this is usually caused by a bad day or just a long day. I know that I shouldn't do it, but it just happens. And when he calls me out on it, it makes me more frustrated. I would also say another example for me is how I act when I am stressed out. I again with shut him out. I have to remind myself that its not my husbands fault and he is to to there for be and to comfort me. 

How can reflecting christ's posture benefits your marriage? 
I think looking at our posture and attitude when you are praising god, can help with your marriage because this is when one shows positive posture and attitude. You will want to embrace this and bring that attitude into your daily life and relationships.
