The questions is to you ladies, are you ready to step it up to be the wife God has called you to be? Even if you are not a wife and are single, this message is for you. I have been thinking of my calling as a wife as I am approaching my 13-year Anniversary and realizing I have a lot to improve on in my role as a wife. I think as women we can get set in our mundane tasks of everyday living that we just settle at being an “okay” or “good” wife. But are we comfortable with just “okay” or is God calling us higher?
Titus 2:4-5 explains our role is to love our family and be a role model for younger woman. The verse states, “ And so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their husbands that the word of God many not be reviled.” Titus 2:4-5
This verse says a lot and how as wives we need to step it up and work harder than ever on loving our children and husband. We carry so much power in the home as women that we need to make sure our presence is Godly and not absorbed with ourselves. Our husbands lead the home but we truly set the tone of the home! Have you heard the saying, “If Momma ain’t happy ain’t nobody happy!” That saying is sooo true and we do have the power to set a tone of love, patience and kindness that will permeate the home and show your kids respect and love towards each other and your husband. This ladies, is where we are called to action and be the wives God calls us to be. Step up and choose to submit or align yourself with your husband and impact God’s Kingdom with your marriage.
Are you ready to step up? Don’t be on the sidelines watching your family slip on by and not being the example God has called you to be! Step up today and don’t miss out on the God given power He has given you and the precious role called “Wife”!
