1 of the 52 books i am reading through this year is
the Excellent Wife by Martha Peace.
i read this one a couple years ago but i am definitely in dire need of the refresher!!
i skipped around a little bit and decided to read chap. 14 last week. this chapter basically deals with how to respond biblically to your husband in conflict - especially when you disagree with something.
i realized through my reading that oftentimes i do not act like this 'excellent wife' God calls me to be... i tend to believe i know best, assert (aggressively so) these opinions i have, and take control of situations. instead of allowing trent to lead, i usually don't even give him the option! but i just assume i know best, tell him that's the case, and then pout if he disagrees (hmm... rings a bell from my toddler years... ouch).
grateful for this book.
super grateful that my husband's loves for me is not based on my works.
super duper grateful that God's love for me is not based on my works.
in Christ alone, my hope is found.
