Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
I love this man. It is a great prayer of mine that I will submit to his loving headship over me, and when I speak with him, my words would be kind and careful.
I am greatly thankful to the Lord for making me a helper meet for him.
And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make a help meet for him.
(meet- adj. -precisely adapted for a particular situation, NEED, or circumstance)
Meet is an adjective in this verse, describing the helper. What did the man need? He needed a helper, so he wouldn't be alone. It was not good that he was alone.
I am thankful to the Lord to have been made for this young man as his wife. He loves the Lord, loves and enjoys studying His Word, loves spending time with brothers and sisters in the Lord, and (second best) he loves me. He has been calm and patient with me especially with me "learning" to run a household by myself, however small it may be. He has advised and lead me in things spiritual and practical.
This was going to be last weeks post, but I couldn't find all of the words to finish it. Now I am very glad that the Lord didn't give me the words to use. Last night our Bible study was on the document on Proverbs 12:4 (link below). It was used as a reminder and teaching for wives to reverence and serve their husbands and not to be odious and rebellious, to be crowns on their heads instead of rottenness in their bones. I am very thankful for the words of description for better understanding given in that document. May I, and all us wives, and training to be wives, learn from this to "seek to exceed everything that the Bible teaches as the standard for great women."
A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.
