Last week, I was talking to a friend and she mentioned that sometimes as Christians we try to “Pimp” God and this can have an adverse affect on our marriage.
Often times we do this by:
Only spending time with Him 2 hours per. week during church, while neglecting the private intimate moments.
Praying only when we want something.
Only doing things for Him to give us something in return.
Refusing to submit to our husbands in private, but acting as if we do in public.
Neglecting to see what your husband’s needs are so you can support and minister to him.
We do these things with expectation that God will bless us in return for our empty attempts to get Him to move…quickly.
Wow! That’s deep!
A lot of times we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life without ever recognizing God or taking time to at least say thank you. Afterall, how would you feel if your husband only gave you 2 hours a week with most of that time doing what only he wanted to do…if you know what I mean.
I say this because getting in the presence of God is so important. It dictates how we interact with others, how we deal with our husbands, and ultimately how our future will be. Maybe God is trying to get your attention, but because you’re so “busy” you can’t hear Him. I’ve been there a lot only to miss out on the treasures I know God has for me.
Private moments of Bible study, prayer, meditation, and listening are important. For it is in those times that God will show you how to encourage and build up your husband so you can set the atmosphere for a loving, supportive environment in your marriage.
