I love baking. I love cooking. There’s a part of me that wonders if I had gone to culinary school where I’d be right now…
Any good cook knows you have to do some prep work prior to starting whatever you are concocting. The same holds true when it comes to getting married. You have to be willing to put in the prep work.
You cannot just come to the relationship in a tizzy, all frayed, and think things will magically work themselves out. You have to know who you are. You have to know who he is. And you have to ultimately know Him too. (in my opinion)
That is what #wifematerial is honestly about.
Yes you are amazing. Yes you are stunning and talented. But we have to get real with ourselves and know we have prep work to do. Dive in now.
This includes you already married women too!
Take that class. Read that book. Dive into the Word. See what God has to say about you, to you. Find out where He is leading you, right now.
And if you are dealing with some past pain or issues? Well bravo sister! I am glad you are dealing with them instead of toting them around as baggage. While we bring many things to a relationship, that baggage shouldn’t be there. Unless it fits into your handy utility belt from prep work, you don’t need it.
Because we should be bringing stories to the relationship. We should be bringing our authentic selves. We should be bringing our submissive and holy selves. We should be bringing our heart.
We should be bringing it all before Him. So that He can use it for His glory and not our own. So that He can take it and make it beautiful and good. In the end, it’s not about the person next to you or the means of finding the right man. It’s about how you are prepared to be the woman of God.
Are you ready for some prep work?
