Created to be His Help Meet ~ 4

Chapter 4 ~ Thanksgiving Produces Joy
  • Live with thanksgiving, forgiveness, and joy, and enjoy all your moments as if they were your last.
  • You have control over whether or not you and your husband will be "heirs together of the grace of life" (I Peter 3:7), or partners together in the tension and stress of life.
  • Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little. Ans he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven...Thy faith has saved thee; go in peace ~ Luke 7:47-48, 50
  • The message to you is simple. From this day forth, starting right now-today-be the woman who honors, obeys, and loves Jesus, by honoring your husband.
  • Begin to thank God for his grace towards you. Thank him for every good thing that he has brought into your life. Thank him, thank him and thank him again. Joy is the result of a thankful heart. AS thankful heart is the result of a person who decides to give thanks.

Time to Consider

  • Traits of a Good Help Meet: She is joyful...She makes love fun...She is thankful and content.
  • And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing. Psalm 107:22
  • But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the Lord. Jonah 2:9
  • Joy is often lacking in a woman's life because she is not thankful.
  • For the Lord shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody. Isaiah 51:3
