There are times in all Christian women’s lives that we are faced with those who do not believe in the things that we do. For that matter, it is a problem for all Christians. Often times it is easy to lose where our focus should be. I am one of those and I will sadly admit it.
During the past week and a half, I have been dealing with some personal demons brought out by people who live outside my home. As much as I regret it will deal with these issues I no longer felt good enough to write something inspirational to other women because as I hope you all know my intent is to never sound fake. I was afraid however if I were to write that is exactly what I would be doing. Trust me had you read any blog post I had tried to write last week you would have found me far from inspiring!!
So I found myself feeling so alone. I continued writing in my prayer journal and of course, doing my devotions and yet I was still allowing a little voice in my head say that I just wasn’t good enough. I was harboring so much hurt from a situation that I wasn’t truly allowing God to comfort me the way I should have. Have you ever felt that way? I am sure if we were all honest with ourselves we more than likely all have to say that we have.
I have always been the type of person who tries to please everyone. I am a self-proclaimed people pleaser. As you all know being this way does not work out so well when you are no longer in control of your life because you have handed it all over to God. Along the way, there will be disagreements with people on how and why you do things. Stepping on toes no matter how tactful still leave hurt feeling on both parties parts. This is especially hard when dealing with those who still hold true to worldly values, not Godly ones. We must stand strong by the truth. It is our duty as a Christian to do so!!
Though last week may have been hard for me I was reminded that though others make not like me and what I stand for the main thing is that God is pleased. Secondly that my husband is pleased as well. After all, once we took our marriage vows I was no longer to please anyone else but my husband. I was to cling to him and God only.
It Is Impossible To Please Everyone:
While I was cooking dinner I was again reminded that it is IMPOSSIBLE to please everyone. Anyone that has ever tried to prepare a meal for a large family knows what I am talking about. I for the life of me have yet to find a meal that everyone in my home will eat and love. If I can’t please everyone at my dinner table how in the world should I ever think I can please the rest of the world.
Being a woman of God doesn’t mean that we will always do things correctly after all we are still human. However, we strive to live as closely to God’s word as possible. Trying to become a Godly wife means that we need to make sure our priorities are in order.
- Our Husbands
- Our Children
Plan Of Action:
If we do happen to offend or upset someone we should……
- Pray about the situation
- Try to talk the situation out
- Pray for all people involved
- Move on
I can assure you that the next time I write you it will not have as big of a gap in between sessions. After all the purpose of this blog is to share my journey to become a Godly wife and no I don’t have everything all figured out. But I do enjoy sharing with you as I strive to get it right.
I would like to invite you to my Facebook group Christian Homemakers in Training where we dive into homemaking, motherhood, marriage and group devotions. After all, we all need a safe place to grow together, right?
