A Happy Wife, Happy Life:Week 7
Ecclesiastes 9:9 Live happily with the woman you love through all the meaningless days of life that God has given you under the sun. The wife God gives you is your reward for all your earthly toil.
Happiness should never be defined through a person, place or thing in your life. Happiness is defined by your decision to enjoy life, regardless of life circumstances. If you’re miserable single, you’ll be miserable married. A husband is a companion that adds to your happiness but you can’t expect him to make you happy.
We were taught as children that happiness only comes when you marry your prince charming. We go out looking for love in all of the wrong places and expect this perfect prince to sweep us off of our feet only to find out that we kissed a frog instead of a prince.
The truth of the matter is, we believed lies that were told to us and fed to us through a movie. Your happiness starts within, by valuing life without the material things or heart desires. Before I met my husband, I struggled to enjoy life by myself. I consumed my time with my children, Ministry and career until I didn’t know how to define happiness for me. One day I took myself to lunch for the first time and enjoyed my own company. From that day on, I learned to be happy within, love my company and enjoy life in season and out of season. I no longer needed a relationship to define my happiness, my gratitude for life itself ignited a joy that I refuse to turn off.
Husbands are quick to say “happy wife, happy life”. I’ve learned as a Kingdom Wife, to do everything in my power to add to my husbands happiness. When I focus on doing everything to please him, my husband does everything in his power to add to my happiness and please me in return. Instead of complaining about what you don’t have, be thankful for what you do have and give your husband What pleases him. The Holy Spirit will eventually teach him how to meet your wants and needs.
Your single season is teaching you how to be content and happy within so that when your husband finds you, both of you can add to each other’s happiness.
How do you define happiness? Is it predicated on material things or your husband making you happy?
Do you feel like you will find happiness after your husband finds you?
