A Trustworthy and Enriching Wife...

To continue our talk on the Proverbs 31 woman...

Proverbs 31:11-12 NLT Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.

As women who seek to become all God has called us to be in every area of our lives, we must also seek to be the woman God has called us to be for our husbands.  We must be trustworthy and add value to his (husband) life.  For a husband to trust in his wife, she must be honest and truthful. She must be naked before him--hiding nothing.  I believe that when a husband knows that his wife is naked before him, it produces trust...ongoing trust because she has nothing to hide.  We must add value to his life by contributing to the relationship and supporting him in prayer and deed.

As a "Proverbs 31 woman," a wife must look for ways to be good to her husband.  I believe that her relationship with the Lord will cause this scripture to manifest in her life.  Sometimes, a wife has to look beyond her husband and remember the Lord and His love for her...remember God's faithfulness and sovereignty.  Truthfully, no wife is going to want to be nice when she is upset or there's an unresolved issue.  Face it, we're imperfect people who serve a perfect God.  That is what we must remember! That is how we become who God has called us to be! In every situation, we remember God. Do everything as unto the Lord. (Colossians 3:23) There you have it--that is how she does her husband good and not harm all the days of her life.

God bless you! Be encouraged!
