Drip Drop Drip Drop

You are trying to sleep but just cannot get that nagging sound out of your head!

Drip .......Drop
Drip .......Drop
Drip .......Drop


The second part of Proverbs 19:13 says that "The contentions of a wife are a continual dropping"

con·ten·tious \kən-ˈten(t)-shəs\

Definitions

-exhibiting an often perverse and wearisome tendency to quarrels and disputes

-synonyms see:

bel·lig·er·ent

-waging war

-inclined to or exhibiting assertiveness, hostility, or combativeness


Contentious mean having an aggressive or fighting attitude. Belligerent often implies being actually at war or engaged in hostilities. Quarrelsome stresses an ill-natured readiness to fight without good cause. Contentious implies perverse and irritating fondness for arguing and quarreling.


Take a serious assessment of your behavior and attitude towards your own husband. Would any of these words describe you? EVER?

CONTENTIOUS
BELLIGERENT
DISPUTING SPIRIT
HOSTILE
QUARRELSOME
FIGHTING SPIRIT
IRRITATING
FONDNESS FOR ARGUING
WAGING WAR
PUGNACIOUS

NO!

Well Maybe sometimes?

Oh Dear! Yes, they do...


As Christians, more specifically Christian Wives, we are called to a life of continually examining ourselves before the Lord.

Psalm 139:23-24

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.

24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.


No one is perfect. . .

BUT:

We can continually seek the heart of God and desire to CHANGE...

FOR THE BETTER!

For HIS Glory.


So examine your own life today. Ask God to change your heart. Be a woman, wife, and child of God who seeks to create a home that is welcoming and peaceable.






Proverbs 31:11

The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
