my spirit is FULL

Last night was awesome. I am so, so thankful for the people we are joined to in our ecclesia (church) for so many reasons. The Holy Spirit spoke to me SO much on so many different things last night. The whole premise of last night was our role as wives. All the women met together and all the men met together, and spoke on different things. It was AWESOME.

One of the many many revelations I walked away with last night was the fact that we, as wives, set the tone for our house. Ultimately, you bet, our husbands are the head, the authority, the final say. But we are their partners, and we can't expect them to have all of those responsibilities, PLUS everything at home.

When your husband comes home from work, you have 2 choices: to either dump everything that's been bugging you all day on top of his already full plate, going on and on about how the kids weren't good today, or this or that....OR, you can greet him with an encouraging word, a kiss, and an offer to take some of that weight off of his shoulders.

In doing this, we set ourselves in a place to be blessed in return! A relationship where both people are laying down their lives for the other is the most beautiful thing. THAT'S where the perfect blend of "oh my gosh, he's my best friend AND i am so, so in love with him" comes in! It's wonderful!! Thank you, Father, for the way you set things up. I JOYFULLY line up with Your order... there is always greatness on the other side of obedience!

It's so interesting when God is really trying to teach you something he always seems to show you in so many forms. I went to a womens bible study last night and we were talking about the sme thing! I am so encouraged after reading this!!
