Hey Ladyloves. Hope your day has been beautiful. Hinging on last week’s post let’s chat more about marriage preparation. We now know a wise woman will improve herself before ever taking on the responsibility of marriage. No, you won’t be perfect before taking that step, but you can be a much better version of yourself. That’s our goal again today! I am liking the list format these days. So keep reading for 5 more tips that will prepare you to be a great wife!
We know God created marriage. Certainly, He is the ideal One to help you as a wife. Having a sincere relationship with God makes all the difference in life ladies. Develop a prayer life and allow God to help you strive for His standard as a help meet. He can help you with every point covered on this list. I encourage you to get to know Him!
The opposite sex will always exist so kick jealousy to the curb. It’s a nasty little thing that is extremely destructive. In a relationship you have to establish trust and be confident in who you are and what you have to offer your man. Jealousy, fear, and worry are detrimental for a marriage. So overcome any of those things prior to jumping that broom.
Part of being a wife is knowing how to take good care of your family and keep your home operating in an efficient manner. This includes cooking, cleaning, organizing etc… Although, it doesn’t mean you have to do it all. Let me just say, I don’t know of a man… even if he’s a chef… That doesn’t want his wife to cook a good meal for him every now and then. These are skills you need to have and use. So if you don’t, work on developing them. Trust me, you’ll be glad you did.
Don’t be anxious. Even though it can be hard, be content being single. Life could always be worse. Contentment is learned and It begins with thankfulness for what you have now.
You should be a confident woman who loves and values herself first. A spouse only enhances your life as you come together for a new beginning. If you’re needy entering into it (or any relationship for that matter) you will be looking to take rather than give. Always needing reassurance and validation because you can’t do it for yourself; and normal expressions of love will never be enough. Why? Because what you’re needing no one else can give you… That is love for yourself and reassurance, love and validation from God.
If you struggle with confidence and self love talk to God about it. Ask Him to show you how special and valuable you are to Him and to help you see that value in yourself. From personal experience I know He will.
We often go wrong in offering ourselves half put together but want the man perfectly together. But even a perfect man cannot change you, you have to work on yourself. Use these suggestions to help prepare yourself to be a great wife. Until next time…
