God's Beautiful Work-Marriage

"Then the LORD God said, " It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him." Genesis 2:18
"The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man." Genesis 2:22
"For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh." Genesis 2: 24

Is it just me, or should this not amaze us, the fact that of the dust He formed Adam, the fact that from Adam's rib He formed Eve. And this beautiful union God placed, and even now blesses man with. I have a great task at hand as a wife, as a child of God. And more praise and thanksgiving should come from my heart and lips as I learn more and more. Its good to hear Proverbs 10:9-10 "Give instruction to a wise man and he will be still wiser, Teach a righteous man and he will increase his learning. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding." Imagine, the knowledge of God is understanding. May I be resolved to understand Him more so that I am reminded know who I am, and how I am called to live, and in understanding Him, live as a wife pleasing to God ultimately then loving my husband. How wonderful He is to use such a sinner like me for His purpose and will, and its GOOD. Oh, how I need to learn to be Resolved when familiarity and despondency creep up. How marvelous to see His beautiful work from the beginning and see that even in my own life with the blessing of my husband. He is worthy to be loved and adored for eternity, and we cannot even grasp what eternity is. Hmmmm, a lot of scripture to memorize in order to share the truth with others.

Lord help me to love you with all my heart, soul and mind.

Thanks for reading, my love.
