Now brings me to the issue at hand. I am now a preacher's wife, my children are preacher's children. Question have flooded my soul. I worry about whether I will be able to go this road and do it right. Can I be that Proverbs 31 woman and make my husband proud to say that his wife is "far above rubies"? I have always let my husband lead in our home and we have shared responsibility. Now comes in the total submission since the Lord has made a plan for our household, a different journey for us to travel. A different set of rules to play by that I must adhere to.
I have always been told in the past that I have a meekness about me, and it shines. To be Meek means 1. Showing patience and humility; gentle.
2. Easily imposed on; submissive. I have a responsibility now to others that view me and watch my actions in everything I do. Will I continue to show that meekness? Not that being a Christian is any different, people still watch your reactions even then. I am human in all ways, and being human I am not perfect, but I want my godly character to show when people view me, and for them to know me as a Christian.
I know being a preacher's wife is not easy, I have plenty of friends that are just that, and they by no means have a easy road. Too many see a preachers wife and view them in a box and expect them to be perfect. Listen up no one is perfect and God is no respecter of men.
All in all my prayer would be that you just pray for me to be the best preacher's wife that I can be and for me not to have too hard of a road at being so. I pray everyday for guidance, and am sure that the Lord can and will continue to show me the way just as he does my husband. Blessing to all.
