One of my goals in life is to be a peaceful wife.
I want to be a woman who brings peace into my home. This peace doesn’t start with my children, but with my marriage.
I’ve realized that a lot of times I sabotage my own efforts. Peace doesn’t come when I insist on having my own way, or argue with my husband.
I want to be the type of woman that my husband wants to be around. When I’m peaceful and agreeable, this produces natural good fruit that fosters a loving relationship.
Think about it. Do we want to be around others who are contrary and argue? I know for me, that is a big no. Argumentative people make life more difficult, in general.
When we learn to peacefully talk to our husbands, and speak our minds gently and calmly, then our homes become a place of rest, both for us and for our children.
I don’t know about you, but I want to be my husband’s friend. His best friend. When we cultivate an attitude of peacefulness in our marriage, then a beautiful relationship begins to form.
Peace is one of the fruits of the Spirit, and as followers of God, we should want it in our lives.
But what if our husband is not peaceful?
Sisters, we are responsible for our own actions. Neither I nor my husband is perfect. But as women of God, we are called to do the right thing no matter what hardships we face.
When we decide to be peaceful, the Lord is glorified. This becomes so much easier when we realize that the things we do unto others we are really doing unto Him. This makes all of the difficult moments worthwhile.
Take heart. The Lord is for you, and not against you. He will help us along the way if we turn to Him.
